About VACA, a performance by Anna Chirescu in collaboration with ADN

Immersed in the heart of the animal instinct / animal instinct exhibition, two dancers embody “the cow” literally and figuratively, from the prehistoric, bucolic, debonair image to the degrading qualifiers and industrial treatments, “chosifying” the animal to the extreme. Here, dance restores gentleness to bovine movements and rekindles tenderness in the gaze.

Trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, Anna Chirescu has performed with Jean-Claude Galotta, Daniel Larrieu and Bill Young. At the Centre National de Danse Contemporaine d’Angers (director Robert Swinston, 2013-20), she danced Merce Cunningham’s repertoire, in France and abroad. Since 2017, she has worked with visual artist Grégoire Schaller on pieces combining dance and visual arts (Les Indolents, 2017 ; Dirty Dancers, 2018 ; Ordeal by water, 2023). In 2022, she will create VACA at L’Etoile du Nord. She also holds two Masters degrees (Lettres Modernes & Affaires Publiques).
