The Romanian term “ALTIȚA” refers to the embroidered upper arm of the Romanian Blouse. Inspired from the geometry of this piece of clothing and the freedom of movement it allows, against the backdrop of Dan Dediu’s music, I have designed a choreography in which bodies (of women, men, couples, or groups) – which make up a complex geometry in themselves – dance in a world of structures, shapes and/or symbols. “JOC ‘N JOC” is a succession of choreographies imagined by Gigi Căciuleanu on a music collage made up of chamber and choir music pieces composed by Dan Dediu. From movement to movement, from sound to sound, from picture to picture, from dance to dance…
