INHABITED – audio-video installation by Smaranda Găbudeanu, Răzvan Bumbeș and Vlaicu Golcea
On Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13, between 18.00-20.00, at Pavilion 32, Goethe Institut, during the CORP season,
You will be able to (re) discover the contemporary dance film INHABITED by immersing yourself in its deconstructed space in a video installation made by Smaranda Găbudeanu, Vlaicu Golcea and Răzvan Bumbeș.
The cinematic approach captures every movement of the thoughts and emotions of the dancers Benno Voorham, Mădălina Dan, Svitlana Pashko, Simona Dabija, Denis Bolborea, Laura Vlad, proposing a choreography of the interior spaces, enhanced by the sound compositions signed by Vlaicu Golcea and Kinga Ötvö. A “beautiful music that goes right under your skin. As the creators of the film wanted, music is inhabited by film, but film is also inhabited by music, and I could not conceive of perceiving them separately. Strange wails, at the intersection between sensuality and lament, together with refined micro-noises populate each frame and each character separately. ” (Diana Rotaru, composer)
The physical space in which each protagonist finds himself (“an art in itself, finding these spaces, which were like from my brain”, as the composer Irina Vesa remarked), sheds light on a different layer of reality and demands its own way of approaching in image and editing (Răzvan Bumbeș, Daniel Drăgoescu, Tania Cucoreanu).
From a nature that gives a strange artificial feeling, a fantastic bridge with noir accents – the inHABITED_the attic segment received a special mention at the Bucharest International Dance Film Festival 2020 because “it manages to create an intimate and personal world by creating connections between the visual , poetry and symbolic realms. ” – in the cloister of an insect man or the impossibility of parting, the film does not promise a detached journey, but an immersive teleportation from one world to another, guided by Benno’s mischievous smile.
If after the premiere of the film, the director Selma Dragoș confessed to us that she had that feeling ”when you sit very relaxed and try to imagine what shape you have inside or what shape someone else has, how someone else feels in himself. Or what it would be like not to be in you, but scattered, firms that float and cling to something ”, and the composer Diana Rotaru that“ I actually felt that I entered Smaranda Găbudeanu’s head and mind and that I started to explore ”, The installation promises to amplify these experiences.
The film INHABITED was produced by PETEC within the inLOCUIT / inHABITED project financed by the Ministry of Culture, media partner of Radio Romania Cultural.
