"Day after day we are swept by emoticons and all kinds of abbreviations. Emotions are re-codified in stylized images and/or concentrated in just a few letters. The main idea of the performance regards the message exchange through codified language, which may be bodily or verbal, a language of images (like Emojis) or/and of the abbreviations that more are more people are starting to use. Messages that often become hard to understand and seem absurd to those who are not initiated in these codes. (...) #EmojiPlay is a performance of choreographic theatre which combines in an apparently playful way the tri-dimensional language (so the more complex!) of #DanceActors with the visual and (still!) strange bi-dimensional world of these new symbols and metaphors."
"Căciuleanu holds a mirror in front on young people and shows us how they speak: a codified language, with many abbreviations, both funny and odd, supported accordingly by a dynamic choreographic accompaniment. (...) #Emojiplay is a lively, funny, playful, light, fluid performance, that will be enjoyed especially by young people (who will find an equivalent of their virtual networks conversations). While those who don't know too well the consonants strings and and how they can be decoded will be amused with conversations between teenagers who have their eyes constantly glued to their phones."
Corina Dima, #EmojiPlay de Căciuleanu: CSF, NCSF, dans!
