elena copuzeanu Cateva secrete work in progress

In acest spectacol am invitat ca participanti un copil si o tanara de etnie roma. Pe Sandra si pe Ionut i-am cunoscut in vara aceasta, cu ocazia unui proiect de teatru imersiv desfasurat pe strada unde cei doi locuiesc. Ambii mi-au iesit in intampinare cu multa prietenie, caldura si deschidere pentru ceea ce noi numim, manifestare artistica. Spectacolul „Cateva secrete’’ e construit din experienta pe care am avut-o impreuna toti trei, in vara aceasta, din ceea ce ne-am povestit unii altora, din secretele pe care ni le-am dezvaluit, din jocurile pe care le-am jucat.


In this show I invited like participants a child and a young Roma. Ionut, Sandra and I met this summer, with occasion of an immersive theater project placed on the street where the two live. Both went out to meet me with great friendliness, warmth and openness for what we call artistic manifestations. The show "Some secrets' is built from the experience we had together all three, this summer, from what we told one another, the secrets that we have revealed the games we've played.

No 10 Self editat x

No10 Self - Este o lucrare coregrafica noua prezentata informal, in martie 2016, cu sustinerea Centrului National al Dansului Bucuresti.

Acesta piesa e o calatorie, prin intermediul unor experiente/evenimente performative. Exista un inceput si un sfarsit, si o transformare cuprinsa intre aceste doi poli. În spațiul scenei ma deplasez pe un traseu coregrafiat minimal, traversez o serie de ‘evenimente corporale’ intre punctele A si B.  Propun incursiuni în spații interioare și exterioare, dezvaluind ce se afla in spatele miscarilor: un flow de gânduri, emoții, stări. Sursa acestor evenimente corporale este in realitate autobiografica. Ma intereseaza cum pot sa transform realitatea autobiografica in termenii unui spectacol? Cum pot sa filtrez experiente reale, personale si sa le compun, gasindu-le corespondent intr-o noua realitate in cadrul unui spectacol.


Self No10. It is a new choreographic work informally presented in March 2016 with the support of National Dance Center Bucharest.

This piece is a journey through some experiences / performative events. There is a beginning and an end, and a transformation between these two poles. I go on stage, in the route choreographed minimal, through a series of ' corporate events ' between points A and B. I propose inroads in indoor and outdoor spaces, revealing what is behind the movement: a flow of thoughts, emotions, states. The source of these body events is autobiographical reality. I am interested in how I can transform this reality autobiographical situations in terms of a performance? How do I filter my real personal experiences, and how I compose them, finding them a new correspondent in a show.

PROMENADE elenacopuzeanu

elenacopuzeanu / Butterfly effect

Butterfly Effect. A dance performance and in the same time a live performing installation, which lasts 45 minutes. With two performers and a lot of objects. With music, autobiographic texts and lights. What is unusual in this show is the fact that will gradually limit space where we perform. This process of restriction of space brings us to a perpetual reconfiguration. The strength of performance lies in the secret codes of communication, into dramatic and ecstatic fusion that will take place between the elements present on the scene: objects, characters, word, sounds and lights. (  Initially, I started working on the Butterfly effect by inviting Georgian Dobre along with me. We entered in space and began to improvise between certain limits and rules. Then we shot, analyzed and resumed the process. For some objective reasons I could not continue working on the project in this formula. A year later I resumed the project alone, within the WASP.
