'Ziua României' la Festivalul Tamisei

Sun. 9 Sep, 2018 1:00 pm

 Duminică, 9 septembrie, parcul Bernie Spain de pe malul Tamisei, în apropierea Teatrului Național, va deveni o mică Românie Mare, sărbătorită la 100 de ani de la naștere.

 

Sărbătoarea îi va aduce laolaltă pe artiștii de la Centrul Cultural „Augustin Bena” din Alba-Iulia, care vor prezenta dansuri, cântece şi meșteșuguri din județul Alba, împreună cu tulnicăresele, vestitele suflătoare în vechiul instrument de origine dacă. Li se vor alătura Taraful George Pătrașcu și cântăreața şi actrița Maria Buză, pentru a aduce parfumul Bucureștiului de altădată, muzica Mariei Tănase şi cântecele de petrecere.

 

Ne vom întâlni cu legendarul campion olimpic Ivan Patzaichin, care va lansa cu această ocazie o nouă colecție vestimentară PATZAIKIN semnată de designerul Olah Gyarfas și inspirată de tradițiile pescarilor din Delta Dunării. Vom admira de aproape flotila de bărci reprezentând, simbolic, regiunile istorice ale României, participante cu o zi înainte la The Great River Race.

 

Festivalul este potrivit pentru întreaga familie, în parc existând corturi cu bucate românești și o zonă de activități pentru copii.

 

Programul se va încheia cu un moment special, când vechiul se va împleti cu noul, iar folclorul și instrumentele vechi cu muzica electronică: Electric Brother şi Vlaicu Golcea se vor întrece cu tulnicăresele din Apuseni pentru a câștiga inima publicului!

 

Și pentru că umorul îi definește atât pe români, cât și pe britanici, l-am invitat pe actorul şi comediantul Radu Isac să prezinte întregul program și să-l presare cu momente de stand-up comedy.

 

Atât Regata Marii Uniri (8 septembrie), cât şi Ziua României (9 septembrie) fac parte din apreciatul Festival al Tamisei, eveniment anual care celebrează legendarul râu al Londrei.

 

Seria de evenimente este organizată de Institutul Cultural Român în parteneriat cu Asociaţia „Ivan Patzaichin – Mila 23” şi Primăria Municipiului Bucureşti, cu sprijinul Ambasadei României la Londra şi a Festivalului Totally Thames.

 

Parteneri: Compania Națională de Transporturi Aeriene Române TAROM, Aqua Carpatica şi Centrul Cultural „Augustin Bena” din Alba Iulia.

Sewing Signs for an Open House

Sat. 22 Sep, 2018 11:00 am - Sun. 23 Sep, 2018 6:00 pm

22 - 23/09/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X8PH

 

We are delighted to take part, for the eighth consecutive year, in Open House London, the greatest architectural showcase that takes over the capital every September. For this year’s edition, we adorn the elegant interiors of our Belgravian palace with an exhibition dedicated to the world-renowned fascination exerted by the Romanian blouse. 

 

With its intricate adornments and vivid colours, the famous traditional blouse (in Romanian, IE), a constant inspiration for international fashion designers, is by no means one of the most famous Romanian artefacts. More than a mere sartorial marvel, the blouse is a language in itself. The story behind the symbolism of the sewing patterns that decorate each of these garments will be revealed, alongside a rich selection of blouses, through a series of descriptive panels. The exhibition is curated by architect Ioana Corduneanu, the initiator of ‘Sewing Signs’ platform, who will be offering guided tours on both days of the Open House weekend. “Driven by passion and tempered by method”, as she describes herself, Ioana Corduneanu has the ambition to create an Encyclopedia of the Romanian Blouse. ‘Sewing Signs` is a community of women determined to rediscover, practise and pass on the rich heritage of the traditional textiles to future generations.

 

Moving on to the first floor, the visitors will have the chance to learn more about our sumptuous building with the 'Auspicious Absents. An architectural and biographical history of 1 Belgrave Square' exhibition. Acquired by the Romanian government before WWII, the building has functioned as an embassy, ambassadorial residence or cultural institute ever since. Grade I listed by the English Heritage for its exceptional architecture, its elegant halls, old furniture and paintings by great Romanian artists have been of great interest for tourists and for those who want to learn more about the insights of the British capital’s architecture.

 

When: 22 & 23 September 2018, 10am-5pm. Exhibition guided tours at 11.00, 12.30, 14.00 & 15.30.

Where: Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PH

Award-winning thriller “Dogs” at the Romanian Cinematheque

Tue. 25 Sep, 2018 7:00 pm

25/09/2018 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X8PH

 

We are thrilled to resume our Cinematheque screenings this September with “Dogs”, director Bogdan Miricã’s debut feature. Internationally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, where it won the FIPRESCI Award in the Un Certain Regard section, the film tells the story of Roman, a naïve outsider who returns to the land he has just inherited from his grandfather. Fully decided to sell this barren estate, he is warned that his grandfather was a local crime lord and his men will not let go of the land and their smuggling business without a fight.

 

Bogdan Mirică is an editor and writer, whose passion for cinema took him to the University of Westminster, London, where he studied screenwriting. In 2011, he wrote and directed his first short film, “Bora Bora”, which won him several awards in Europe, being selected at numerous festivals, including those of Locarno, Warsaw and Thessaloniki.

 

“In a Cannes that has given us a lot of pleasures, but very few real surprises or revelations, Mirica’s debut stands out, in a modest way, as both surprise and revelation—and certainly contributes to redrawing the map of Romanian cinema that we thought we knew so well.” – Jonathan Romney
