'Cinema, Mon Amour', one of the recent outstanding Romanian documentaries, opens the 2017 programme of our Romanian Cinematheque on 29 March. Do not miss the London premiere of this homage to a life spent in a cinema and a life lived (literally and metaphorically) through cinema!
Our participation at this year's edition of the London Book Fair, translated into a series of illuminating events, ranging from book launches and dialogues to theatre and exhibitions, honours the legacy of poet and philosopher B. Fundoianu / Benjamin Fondane (1898-1944), whose work is making a much-deserved comeback thanks to two new translations published by New York Review of Books.
Revolving around the fascinating personality of legendary composer, musicologist and educator, this celebratory, one-month programme recalls the genius of Pascal Bentoiu, who passed away at the age of 88 last year, through two concerts complemented by an exhibition and a talk.
We are thrilled to continue our theatrical programme with the revelation of 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Andreea BorĹŁun’s “Ashes Afar” directed by rising star director Bobi Pricop and produced by the Irish-Romanian company Vanner Collective.
'IDentity', the fashion collection by designer Andra CliĹŁan, the creative force behind MA RA MI, illustrates the brand’s philosophy - a fusion between ancestral forms and techniques of MaramureČ™ (Northern Transylvania) and latest sartorial approaches and fabrics. The exhibition is open at RCI London until 10 March.
Kasper Holten, the visionary Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden is awarded one of the most important Romanian decorations in a special ceremony conducted by HE Mr Dan Mihalache, the Romanian Ambassador to the Court of St James’s, which will open our 'Gifts of Spring' event, a celebration of culture, creativity and renewal.
