Cosmin Manolescu, one of Romania’s leading contemporary choreographers and artistic director of Serial Paradise Company, continues his investigation of and desire to deepen the relationship between performers and audience in SUPERGABRIELA. Alternately sexy, confounding, and dark-humored, this 2-part evening of dance explores expressions of love & loss, heightened sensation, and the illusion of everyday life in Cosmin’s signature satirical style and superb visual sense.

Room 1306 [I Am Myself]” is a performance-installation by Cosmin Manolescu to be presented for a 6-hour span in the space of a hotel room or gallery. The limits of intimacy and togetherness are investigated, while audience becomes (in)voluntarily part of the highly sensorial universe created by the performers. The spectator is transformed in a voyeur witness, watching and being also watched during the performance.
