What is an art laboratory?

120 min.


Discussion of the laboratory as a research space for constant experimentation.

To what extent is the laboratory – a research space necessary for constant experimentation – a priority for artists/performers, vocational faculties and performing arts institutions? Is the creative laboratory a sustainable model? Do we need labs in which to imagine possible worlds less centred on the rules of immediate production? Do we have time for laboratory creation? Does what we see on stage create a frame of thinking that reflects how we produce a performance?

The National Center for Dance – an institution that since its inception has given an extremely important role to research and training – and the NDF invite you to a discussion with artists, performers, teachers and managers of performance institutions.

Guests: Mădălina Dan, Ion Dumitrescu, Radu Nica, Leta Popescu, Elena Zamfirescu

Event as part of the CNDB Focus module.

The 33rd edition of the National Theatre Festival takes place in Bucharest from 20 to 30 October 2023, curated by Mihaela Michailov, Oana Cristea Grigorescu and Călin Ciobotar.
