One might say IronCage was a great contemporary dance show, full of energy and good vibes, marked by the creative spirits of both Spanish and Romanian dancers. We think it was much more than that. What started as a dream, turned out, in just a couple of months, to be a palpable reality.
Panta Rei Dance Theatre, Sibiu Ballet Theatre and Choreography DepartmentNGO (ASC) together with choreographer Sandra Mavhima has joined forces to create a double-bill dance performance to target the issues at hand in the High Level Conference.
Dance and the arts are important tools for dialog when the aim is to go right to the heart of pressing social issues promoting emotional reactions in the spectator. Soft Power aims to leave the audience emotionally available and ready to dive in to the difficult but extremely important subject matters that the conference highlights.
There is a card following the performance, and the artists would like to ask of all the conference participants to send the card to a woman they think need or deserve the attention, reminding them that there are efforts made across nations to combat inequality and unjust behavior.
