Choreographer Simona Deaconescu returns as a teacher in the Dance and Performance Academy, second edition, after the success she had in the first edition. Choreomaniacs, the performance she created together with the Academy’s students, was selected for the international Aerowaves Twenty22 programme and was presented at the opening of the Aerowaves Spring Forward festival on 28 April this year in Elefsina (Greece). Simona’s artistic universe lies at the intersection of dance, film, science and technology. Simona Deaconescu creates performances, performative and multimedia installations, as well as dance films, and is the co-founder of the only dance film festival in Romania.
