A new production by choreographer Gigi Căciuleanu will premiere at the National Theater in Bucharest. Representations will take place on March 11th, 12th and 13th. Titled l’Om DAdA, the performance is based on a text by Tristan Tzara, L`homme approximatif, translated from French by Ion Pop.

“I started from Tristan Tzara’s text L`homme approximatif, which I rediscovered after a long time. It is a text I find superbly poetic, not at all absurd, beautiful […], heavy, filled with meaning, and very modern, even after 100 years. The ‘Approximate Man’ (nothing is more approximate than the human being!) is in fact, in the performance, the character of the man as un-approximate as possible, who needs to be the clown, the actor and the dancer. In a word: the DanceActor. I hope it will be first of all a performance of today,” Căciuleanu explained.

This year sees the 100-year celebration of the launch of the first Dada poetic manifesto by Tristan Tzara, Marcel Iancu, Hugo Ball and others in Zurich.
