Planet Dance - Unfold Motion, Timișoara

A performance about dance that needs to be lived and not analysed. Often, the audience finds itself in a position to ” face” the contemporary dance performances, without having any necessary informational references to give them the freedom to personally interpret the message of the show. In some situations, after watching a dance performance, some spectators may leave confused, showing a reluctance to return to a future show.

Thus, the underlying concept Planet Dance is centered around the question: ”What’s the deal with contemporary dance?”. Gradually, the show is revealed to the audience by following a short history of contemporary dance and by questioning the role of the dancer, from performer to creator. In addition to choreography, the show also develops a theoretical dimension, a guide for the uninformed contemporary dance spectators, intending to offer them a foray into the creative space of the performer. And last but not least, Planet Dance aims to narrow the informational and perceptual vacuum between ballet, contemporary dance and people.
