Preview: INTERSECTION | May 29th-30th, 2015
On May 29th and 30th, 2015, together with Work in Progress, we are pleased to present a new contemporary art and urban culture event – INTERSECTION, in partnership with Zeppelin, hosted by Halele Carol, Bucharest (1 Constantin Istrati Street, near Carol Park).
► View recap ◄
The event will focus on the concept of intersection, revealing how, within an unconventional space, various art forms can communicate and creatively enrich together the space with different meanings that the viewer is invited to discover and connect the works with the architecture of the building, its context, with sound and motion.

The event will also feature live performances: Doors of Perception, a mix of kaleidoscopic colors, psychotropic sounds and geometric hallucinations, a journey where consciousness and the unconscious intersect, in a point with no beginning nor end (textual concept by Alina Tofan, performance by Beatrice Tudor, Alina Tofan and Cristina Tudor, sound design by Marian Cîtu / Rufi); Neobelisc, an experimental theater show after The Black Obelisk by Erich Maria Remarque, directed by Alina Tofan, highlighting the drama of the 1923 German society. Is society suffering from schizophrenia? Cristina Tudor and Alina Tofan may answer the question through their performance (sound design by Achy Dopamine); Virgo, a project inspired by the forgotten world of myths and mysteries defining the archaic Romanian village, with focus on the life of the woman caught in this far from simple life, dictated by the hidden voice of the village, a closed circle of life and death. Performing in the show: Cristina Tudor, Beatrice Tudor, Mariana Gavriciuc, Petra Binder.
There will also be fire performances by Drum’n’Fire.
Librăria Jumătatea Plină will bring a special collection of comics, fanzines and posters and present a screen printing workshop, and there will also be a workshop by STORYSCAPES, the first Romanian association focusing on transmedia storytelling and interactive narratives.

About Halele Carol
An initiative of Zeppelin, “Halele Carol” represents a project of transformation of old industrial areas with historical value of Hesper Factory into a cultural and event center, with the objectives of safeguarding and preservation of its historic buildings, maintaining the connection with the DNA of the space – “manufacturing and creation”, opening to the public and transformation into a new urban center of the capital. Each participant in events hosted by Halele Carol implicitly and directly supports the conversion project.
About Work in Progress
Work in Progress is a project focused on discovering and revitalizing urban spaces with an uncertain identity or evolution through artistic interventions (street art, installation, performance, etc.). Work in Progress organizes cultural and art related events in these spaces, offering the public the possibility to interact with artists and reconsider the architectural, cultural or historic value of the chosen space.
The event is the second collaboration between Work in Progress and The re:art, following our first event together in June 2013 at Ciclop Garage (learn more), which transformed the parking space into a permanent urban art gallery through the interventions of over 45 artists.
Full schedule + updates to be announced soon in the Facebook event.
