In November we make room for new worlds to emerge. The National Centre for Dance Bucharest launches the second edition of the Iridescent Festival.
In an ever-changing universe, Iridescent celebrates the transformative power of ideas and dance, so this edition is themed on irreversibility.
This year’s programme brings 16 performances and works, most of them premieres in Romania. Creators such as Ioana Paraskevopoulou, Jérôme Bel, Adriana Butoi, Jean-Baptiste Baele, Mădălina Dan, Moritz Ostruschnjak, Florin Flueraș, Janet Novás, Ioana Marchidan, Dominik Więcek, Ioana Păun, Simona Deaconescu & Vanessa Goodman, Iva Sveshtarova & Willy Prager and their guests challenge you to set sail into unknown territories.
The festival runs from 1 November to 1 December at the CNDB and partner venues and is an invitation to curiosity and openness.
In Iridescent you will have the opportunity to take part in dance and film workshops and in a discussion about the phenomena that shape our existence, together with Constantin Vică, Veronica Lazăr, Anda Zahiu, Alexandra Zorilă and Paul Gabriel Sandu. We invite you to be part of a Marathon of Ideas for Planet Earth and we are also waiting for you at the party.
Don’t miss out on Early Bird tickets, with discounts on festival events, available in limited numbers only from 3-13 October.
Iridescent is a space to be together. Think of it as a navigational tool that inspires us to discover new possibilities and imagine a better world. Save November for Dance!
