At the end of each year, the National Center for Dance Bucharest celebrates the achievements of those who have added a brick to the value of contemporary dance in society and organizes the CNDB Awards Gala.
This year, the Gala takes place in the middle of the Iridescent Festival, a performative framework in which Romanian and foreign performances, atypical films and conferences, workshops and marathons of ideas become unique opportunities to explore together fresh and less known territories.
In this very special context, we invite you to a double event at the Odeon Theatre on Tuesday 21 November at 7pm.
We will start the evening with the awarding of the CNDB Prizes, which will be presented to the winners by Mrs. Diana-Ștefana Baciuna, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Culture, Mr. Jorge Jiménez Zumalacárregui, Director of the Cervantes Institute and Mrs. Anna Maria Popa, Manager of the “Andrei Mureșanu” Theatre Sf. Gheorghe.
Later, as part of the ongoing festival, we will enjoy the performance of Mercedes máis eu (SP), a collaboration between the composer Mercedes Peón and the performer Janet Novás. Through their work, the two artists connect music and dance and dive into a kaleidoscope of forms and dynamics on themes such as identity, belonging, memory and the common sensibility.
The performance is part of the Baila España programme, marks the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union and is presented for the first time in Bucharest with the support of the Cervantes Institute.
The 2023 edition of the Awards, which is special because of the scale of the festival it is part of, is that privileged moment in the year that brings us together around dance and contemporary creation.
We look forward to celebrating it together!
