4Culture Association announces the 9th edition of eXplore dance festival, which will take place at WASP – Working Art Space and Production & at MNAC – National Museum of Contemporary Art, from October 3rd – 26th, 2014.
Once more eXplore dance festival brings an intense and concentrated program to its audience, questioning movement and body presence, testing the limits of technology versus conceptual art and performance, and developing moving stories for a wide public.
The 9th edition of the festival also reflects the results of the international residency and production programs developed in the past year in Bucharest, by 4Culture Association and WASP, encouraging creative experiments beyond artistic borders, searching for new formats of trans-disciplinary art.
The performances program of eXplore dance festival #9 consists of a selected number of works, introducing strong voices of nowadays European dance scene to the audience. Using a variety of artistic directions and aesthetic influences, the program aims at building a new and necessary dialogue concerning the contemporary body with all its political, emotional and social messages. A body drained of meaning, looking for a new, upgraded content in a consumerist era. A body without any reference points other than its own brain.
A special, unique and non-conventional program dedicated to children, youth and family, including performances and workshops of dance, theater, new-media, creative drawings and games. Contemporary art seeks for a future, open-minded audience. And what better context for exploring it?
This year’s festival will present, throughout its duration, a selection of works from the X Platform exhibition, resulting from the newest international art residency for the research and production of interactive, new and trans-media projects in Bucharest, which is hosted by WASP – Working Art Space and Production and curated by Olivia Nitiş.
