Cosmin Manolescu

Cosmin Manolescu is a dance maker, curator and the executive director of Gabriela Tudor Foundation, as well as the founder and co-artistic director of AREAL – space for choreographic development, a new artist collective run space in Bucharest. He is currently interested in cross-border cultural exchange, leading a series of international projects taking place across the world, coaching young artists, and creating projects that challenge audiences in Romania and beyond. Since 1997 Cosmin has played a very important role in the development of contemporary dance, and in the creation of the National Dance Center Bucharest, which began in 2004. Beginning in 2015, Cosmin has been developing his own method– the emotional body – that he is currently teaching in his workshops and using in his projects and dance retreats. His recent artistic projects include Dans-Wanderer, a tree-artistic project with performances and dance retreats in nature. In 2021 he co-created and performed In the Search of Lost Body (2021, AREAL production), and produced the Private Bodies dance installation and a new version, Private Show.
