“Hi, hello my love, I’m so happy you’ve called…I’m happy to hear your voice, I was missing you.”
– Cosmin Manolsecu on the phone with Gabriela Tudor

“Inventive, relaxed and joyful” – Alex Leo Serban, Elle magazine (on Serial Paradise)

Cosmin Manolescu, one of Romania’s leading contemporary choreographers and artistic director of Serial Paradise Company, continues his investigation of and desire to deepen the relationship between performers and audience in SUPERGABRIELA. Alternately sexy, confounding, and dark-humored, this 2-part evening of dance explores expressions of love & loss, heightened sensation, and the illusion of everyday life in Cosmin’s signature satirical style and superb visual sense.

Part 1: dreams.land Directed by Cosmin Manolescu, performed by Camille Mutel & Litsa Kiousi

Part 2: superGabriela Choreographed & performed by Cosmin Manolescu

Cosmin Manolescu, in addition to directing SUPERGABRIELA, has initiated the “Moving Dialogue” series aiming to foster engagement and interaction between both emerging and established American and Romanian dance artists. The project focuses on networking, artistic process, and professional development for performers, choreographers, dance critics and cultural managers through studio research, residencies, classes and workshops, and more. Moving Dialogue is based on the initial commitment of the Romanian Cultural Institute and National Dance Centre Bucharest and is facilitated by both Cosmin Manolescu (RO) and Levi Gonzalez (USA). Moving Dialogue takes place between Movement Research, Dance Theater Workshop and the Romanian Cultural Institute of New York.

The performances of SUPERGABRIELA close a series of memorial events dedicated to Gabriela Tudor, Cosmin’s manager and wife, who set many landmarks in the world of Romanian contemporary art with passion and dedication. Thursday, November 4 celebrates the launch of the Gabriela Tudor Foundation, which focuses on contributing to the development of emerging Romanian cultural managers.
