The first full performance of “How To Watch Dancing – Looking Away From The Naked Emperor” will be during a week of performances, lectures and masterclasses at the Centrul National al Dansului Bucurest (National Dance Centre Bucharest) focusing on my “Poetic Movement” approach to dance. I will be joined for the week by Alexandra Soshnikova and Sergei Golovnea of Voices Dance Group, who will teach a masterclass and perform “Intimacies”, the work I made for them in 2007 and which they have been performing regularly ever since.
