Gigi Căciuleanu, Romania’s foremost choreographer, captures the seductive energy of DADA, the artistic revolution ignited by the Romanian Tristan Tzara at the beginning of the century, in a show full of disruptive anarchy, irresistible humour and uncomfortable equivoques. Starring Gigi Căciuleanu himself and Lari Giorgescu, the show is hosted by the prestigious Lilian Baylis Studio of Sadler’s Wells.
Inspired by Tzara’s 'L’homme approximatif' ('The Approximate Man'), 'L’oM DadA' boasts all the ingredients of Căciuleanu’s imaginative choreography, balancing between poetry and provocation, which challenge the audience to feel "the heat the word weaves around its kernel" as well as to experience Tzara’s "only state of immediate truth", that is, poetry.
