A protagonist and creator of stage masterpieces, a leader of a highly regarded company and an influential teacher, Gigi Căciuleanu is a profoundly original voice in contemporary dance. The Students’ Cultural House will host on May 30 the launch of Ludmila Patlanjoglu’s book Gigi Căciuleanu — Omul Dans (Gigi Căciuleanu, Dance Man), an album of testimonials, confessions, poems, and drawings that reveal the artist’s hidden facets, in an exceptional graphic volume produced by Bogdan Căpîlnean and supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute. For the occasion, Gigi Căciuleanu will present an extraordinary recital titled Text Shop, a one-man show that proposes an original form of contact with the public.
Organized in partnership with JTI, the event will be followed by a screening of Bobbi Jene (dir. Elvira Lind), which received three jury awards at Tribeca, and tells the emotional story of American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith who comes back to the US after ten years of being a star with the Israeli company Batsheva—only to take leave of her mentor, her choreographers, and, last but not least, the love of her life.
