Mariana Gavriciuc

Mariana Gavriciuc is a choreographer and performer originally from the Republic of Moldova, she is a graduate of the bachelor’s and master’s programmes at the National University of Theatre and Cinematography “I.L. Caragiale” in Bucharest. For almost a decade she has been living and working in Bucharest and gaining experience from collaborating with the Bucharest National Dance Centre, Linotip – Independent  Choreographic Centre and various theatres in the country, as well as from personal projects and in collaboration with various artists from Romania and abroad.

She is inspired by naturalness and realism. She is interested in the primal energy, which makes you move and the raw emotion that is generated with it, their shape in the daily body and the possibilities of transforming them into dance. She is curious about the abstraction of the gesture and a sincere body, which finds its strength in recognizing its own vulnerability. She believes in dance as a method of cleansing and emotional liberation, a self-knowledge mechanism and as a form of education.
