  • Dance & performance

60 min.





CNDB "Stere Popescu” hall (Mărășești 80-82)


What are the places that independent artists and performers occupy? Do they have a group consciousness? Do they belong to a community? Is there a common set of expectations, desires, needs of the 20+ generation? How does an artist live for whom the word stability becomes a utopia? A restless slalom after visibility and peace? Can one make a decent living from independent projects? What does decent mean?

BODIES ON THE LINE explores fragile territories between confessions and statements, placing bodies in spaces of both safety and uncertainty, from which they can articulate their anxieties, hopes and the need to belong to a collectivity that makes the daily struggle for survival a little more bearable.

BODIES ON THE LINE compresses the time of personal stories and dilates the pressure of the times in which we live, dominated by the alienating flight after overlapping projects, exhaustion, burn-out and the feeling that if you are not seen, you do not exist?
