Acting tirelessly at the intersection of various creative mediums, Cristian Luchian engages his artistic work in areas such as immersive theatre, site specific & interactive live art, visual arts and video design. His art work is driven primarily by the notions of time and space, exploring the non-linearity of our perception, the connections between tangible places and virtual spaces, the dynamics of reality within imagined spaces, the intricate sense of duration.
For him, performance and visual arts are interrelated mediums of expressions. Cristian tries to reinforce his painting or photography with a dramatic approach, with sets of cumulative tensions and layers of different narratives, while in Performance he tries to disrupt linearity and enhance the content with a highly visual transmission.
Anca Doczi Luchian is a theatre artist and applied drama practitioner with a background in acting, Performance Art, Performance Poetry and animation theatre. Her approach to creating performance is through practice-as-research where she tries different methodologies of socially engaged theatre and participation to discuss our contemporary life and the social dynamics of the communities around us. She has navigated slowly from theatre to performance, from acting to devising and form practice to theory. She creates performance to reflect upon memory, testimony, cultural behaviour and identity. She uses participation and applied drama to learn about communities and their interactions, about conflict and reconciliation, about the hidden stories of our public life.
