TZARA. DADA. THEATRE: A CENTENARY REVIVAL  

100 years since invented by Romanian Tristan Tzara, DADA still appears as a necessary, irresistible, and hugely enjoyable creative philosophy. We are celebrating this famously idiosincratic artistic formula, infused by massive doses of nihilistic humour, with a theatrical revival of some of DADA’s best short plays. Directed by London-based Romanian director and visual artist Cristian Luchian and performed in English by a volcanic Romanian ensemble, the show brings to life Tzara’s 'Handkerchief of Clouds' and 'Gas Heart' in a tornado of acting virtuosity, astonishing visuals and evocative music by DJ Tyrell. more

GIGI CĂCIULEANU’S 'ONE MINUTE OF DANCE' PREMIERS AT SADLER’S WELLS

Gigi Căciuleanu, Romania’s most acclaimed choreographer, returns to London with another brilliant show, which marvellously documents the maddening process by which a “humble” minute of dance is produced. Different every time, the performance is created and re-created on the spot, taken by the flux of momentary inspiration. The great choreographer himself is joined by dancers Irina Ştefan and Răzvan Stoian together with musician Paul Ilea in a show as unexpected as everybody’s next minute in life. MORE
