Concert Antonia, Alex Velea & Lino Golden în Centrul Londrei

Sun. 7 Apr, 2019 7:30 pm

 

antonia_cover_sm.jpg

Te afli în Londra? Te-ai Mutat aici?  Vizitezi? Nu contează! Se pregătește un super concert pe care nu trebuie să îl ratezi. Pe 7 aprilie 2019 în Londra, Electric Ballroom Camden, are loc evenimentul anului: concert Antonia, Alex Velea, Lino Golden și invitați surpriză! 

Pe Antonia o știm de la televizor, radio, reviste de modă, reviste pentru femei și multe altele. Este tipul acela de persoană care influențează în bine generațiile de tineri, dar și care ne încântă cu muzica ei scrisă și cântată cu suflet. Având concerte atât în România, cât și în străinătate, melodiile ei devin aproape instant hit-uri recunoscute pe plan internațional. Așa că trebuie să vii să o asculți live în Londra!

Mai mult, alături de Antonia va concerta Alex Velea, acesta fiind partenerul ei atât pe plan sentimental, cât și pe plan profesional, lucru care îi ajuă să creeze o atmosferă fermecătoare în concertele lor datorită chimiei dintre ei. Velea este unul dintre cei mai populari artiști ai momentului din România. Piesele lui cu influențe dance, hip-hop și RnB au fost difuzate ani la rând la televizor și radio, făcându-și loc in topul celor mai indrăgite melodii românești atât pe plan local, cât și internațional.

Alex Velea a atras atenția publicului odată cu colaborarea lui cu Anda Adam. Albumul acesteia, Confidențial, a devenit rapid un hit datorita melodiei interpretate alături de Velea – Ce ți-aș face (Selecta). Un succes de la prima sa difuzare, această melodie a dezvăluit talentul lui Alex Velea, în special în zona RnB, atât pentru modul în care a interpretat melodia alături de artistă, cât și pentru talentul său de dansator de Street Dance.

 

Din 2004 până în prezent a colaborat cu artiști precum Guess Who, Radio Killer, Mandinga, Smiley , Connect-R, Matteo și, desigur, cu Antonia. Punem pariu că și tu îți amintești albumul său de debut din 2006 – Yamasha! Aceasta este melodia care i-a adus popularitate lui Alex Velea, dar l-a și consacrat ca fiind unul dintre cei mai îndragiți artiști români care abordează stiluri precum RnB, Hip-Hop, Dance și Reggae. „Yamasha”, „Dragoste la Prima Vedere”, „Când sunt cu tine” și „Doamna mea” sunt primele sale hituri care i-au adus lui Alex Velea premiile Best Show, Best Male și Best New Artist la Romanian Music Awards. Acest album de debut a fost menit să ofere o imagine asupra artistului, așa cum a menționat și Velea într-un interviu la vremea respectivă. Yamasha a fost și rămâne o explozie de note muzicale care te fac să dansezi de la primele acorduri. 

„Iubirea mea” featuring Antonia sau „Bună Rău” cu Lino Golden sunt alte hituri care sigur ți-au rămas în minte, așa că nu trebuie să ratezi ocazia de a-i asculta live în Londra! Colaborarea lui Alex Velea cu Lino Golden este una apreciată de public datorită ritmului inedit de trap folosit de către Lino Golden. Printre cele mai populare piese ale acestuia putem să amintim „Panamera”, „Sus ca Jordan”, „Maceta” sau „N-am văzut ca tine” feat. Alex Velea. Cu milioane de vizualizări pe youtube, Lino Golden este o apariție inedită pe orice scenă.

FEAST (a play in one cooking)

Wed. 10 Apr, 2019 7:00 pm

 

https___cdnevbuccom_images_59346636_1043

10 - 11/04/2019 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

 

Our theatre programme continues in April with a novel piece inspired by Shakespeare’s dramaturgy and written by London-based Romanian actress Olivia Negrean, entitled ‘Feast (a play in one cooking)’. Six of the Bard’s female characters are brought to life by a cast of female actors of five different nationalities, including the writer herself.

As they start to understand each other’s lives, Isabella, Lady Macbeth, Ophelia, Lady Anne, Imogen and Emilia debate on the importance of literature and what it means to be a woman in a world-famous story.

Directed by Philip Parr, the play tackles various topics from feminism, equality, mental health, sisterhood and community to the right to speak one’s mind, magical realism and contemporary Shakespeare.

FEAST (a play in one cooking)

Writer: Olivia Negrean

Director: Philip Parr

Cast: Olivia Negrean, Sara Barison, Charlie Coletta, Lucy Ford, Hannah Lucas and Marie Rabe

Produced by: Parrabbola Theatre Company

Running time: 1 hour. The show will be performed in English.

“I had the urge to write this play in response to the Shakespeare plays that are being performed, where men still are the central characters. Female characters deserve longer time on stage, hence I wrote about a dinner for Shakespeare’s women. There is no main character, all six parts are equal and there is an important ensemble created. Having actresses of different nationalities play characters that are 90% of the time played by British actresses has again been extremely important. Shakespeare is a ‘universal language’ and deserves the chance to be played by a diverse cast. The reason real cooking is involved is because it is an important part of the plot and it also envelops the audience through the smells and visuals created. Eating is a social thing that brings people together. And at the end of the play that is exactly what happens: audience and actors are part of the same story.” – Olivia Negrean

Olivia Negrean is a Romanian actress and playwright based in London, who has a great passion for Shakespeare and wants to bring the female characters of his plays to the forefront. She has done so through FEAST (having written the play and performing in it), but also as an actress and assistant director for two different Shakespeare productions that were created for the International Shakespeare Festival in Craiova, in 2016 and 2018, respectively, where she performed in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Apart from creating her own work, Olivia collaborated with the Romanian Cultural Institute on two projects that promoted Romanian/Hungarian writing and Romanian history: Andras Visky’s play about a young Mother Teresa and a play about Ecaterina Teodoroiu, written and directed by Liana Ceterchi.

Philip Parr is the founder of Parrabbola theatre company, which focuses on theatre that tells the stories of communities - whether geographic, cultural or social. Philip has been invited two years in a row to direct Shakespeare plays for the International Shakespeare Festival in Craiova, Romania and has previously worked with Romanian actress Alina Serban. Philip is a founding council member of the European Shakespeare Festivals network and Director of the York International Shakespeare Festival.

Pe 14 aprilie @Povești spuse-n românește vă invită la Leicester Square Theatre la un spectacol mereu surprinzător, mereu altul și cu un umor tot mai spumos.
Ion Caramitru recită răscolitor și aduce în scenă amintirea vremurilor trecute, imaginând, cu inteligență și iscusință, răspunsuri pe măsură unui Horațiu Mălăele vulcanic, irezistibil și de un haz efervescent.

Mereu surprinzător, mereu diferit și mereu de excepție, spectacolul Caramitru Mălaele, câte-n lună și în stele este un spectacol de improvizație… „pentru că improvizația este, de fapt, starea de grație a actorului”, cum spune Horațiu Mălăele. Spectacolul este mereu altul, ritmul este diferit, umorul tot mai spumos și ingeniozitatea tot mai evidentă. Amintirea vremurilor trecute este adusă în scenă de un Caramitru care recită răscolitor, imaginând, cu inteligență și iscusință, răspunsuri pe măsură unui Horațiu Mălăele vulcanic,irezistibil și de un haz efervescent, cei doi avându-i martori pe Shakespeare, Eminescu sau Topârceanu. 


Concert de Muzică Bizantină: “Hymns of Holy Week” / «Imnuri din Săptămâna Patimilor»

Sun. 14 Apr, 2019 6:00 pm

https___cdnevbuccom_images_58993414_1550

Parohia “Sf. Gheorghe” din Londra, 186 Fleet Street, EC4A 2HR, organizează în data de 14 Aprilie orele 18.00 un concert de muzică bizantină intitulat “Hymns of Holy Week” (Imnuri din Săptămâna Patimilor).


Formatul concertului este unul inedit pentru tradiția românească: cântările bisericești vor fi însoțite de acompaniament instrumental. Astfel, maestrul grec al clarinetului, Thanassis Vassilopoulos, ne va introduce în atmosfera de tânguire și tristețe strălucitoare a Săptămânii Patimilor prin sonoritatea unică oferită de clarinet. Imnele vor fi cântate în limba greacă de către apreciatul protopsalt Angelos Achtinoudis, în timp ce talentatul muzician Arsenis Nassis va completa acompaniamentul instrumental la orgă și percuție.
Ana Achtinoudis va fi naratorul concertului (în limba română).


Organizatorii își propun să aducă în locașul de pe malurile Tamisei atmosfera specifică Postului Mare, cel mai bine exprimată prin imnele bisericești a căror frumusețe este greu de descris în cuvinte.


Totodată, organizatorii își doresc să promoveze activitatea și proiectele desfășurate de Romanian Orthodox Church & Center, inclusiv a proiectului «FII CTITOR!» inițiat în cadrul parohiei «Sfântul Gheorghe» Londra pentru construcția unei biserici și a unui centru comunitar românesc care să permită dezvoltarea activităților misionare și cultural-educative dedicate membrilor comunității românești din Londra.


Peste 200 de persoane (adulți și copii) sunt așteptate să participe la eveniment.


Biletele pot fi achiziționate de la biserică sau de pe site-ul eventbrite aici
Afișul evenimentului este inclus mai jos. Mai multe detalii despre evenimente pe site-ul parohiei: http://www.sfgheorghelondra.org.uk/ro/ , precum și pe pagina de Facebook: aici.

The Poetry of Painting: Eugen Raportoru’s Urban Landcapes

Wed. 17 Apr, 2019 7:00 pm

https___cdnevbuccom_images_59181281_1043

17/04 - 10/05/2019 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH


Eugen Raportoru, one of the most important Romanian painters of his generation, whose raw and vibrant style imposes by its depth a mise-en-abyme of our own emotions in the face of time, is our guest artist in April. His first UK solo show, entitled ‘Urban Report’ and comprising a selection of works that interrogate the soul and memory of place, will open in our Brâncuși Gallery in the artist’s presence.

The opening will include the screening of Ovidiu Darian’s ‘The Claim to a Face’, an award-winning documentary that delves into Raportoru’s startling way of making art, and a mini-recital offered by exuberant violinist Mălina Ciobanu.

“With each exhibition, the painter proves to be more in control of his means of expression, with a more personal and uniform style and vision. The characteristic feature of his painting seems to be his great lyrical discretion that avoids any issues that may be ‘spectacular’ by themselves. Refusing the «noise» of thread colours that make any deeper meaning unintelligible by their uproar, Raportoru’s painting requires form the viewer his inner silence and the attention needed to perceive a whispered confession.” - art critic Victor Ernest Maşek 

With a Master’s Degree in Painting from the National University of the Arts in Bucharest, Eugen Raportoru is the only Romanian artist of Roma origin to have exhibited his works at the Royal Academy of Arts, at the Vatican - under the aegis of UNESCO, at the Ethnic Museum in Oslo and in Stockholm. The artist’s talent for painting and graphics was already discovered at age of 14, when he exhibited at the Grivița Cinema in Bucharest. In Romania’s capital, Raportoru has also exhibited at the Palace of Parliament, in the Brâncuşi Hall at the Simeza Gallery, at Art House or at Gold Art, and his work was also presented in the cities of Sibiu and Sinaia. His mentors were Mihai Cizmaru and Ion Brodeală, followed by Corneliu Baba and Marcel Bunea, whose workshops he frequented always bringing his works for evaluation. Eugen Raportoru was commissioned to illustrate several books such as the Romanian-Hungarian-Romany Trilingual Dictionary (Vanemonde Publishing House, 2001); a volume of Biblical texts in Romany, published by the PROVIDENTA Foundation (2002); a reader for Romani children by Vanemonde Publishing House (2001); and The History and Traditions of the Romani People and the Civic Educational Guide, both editions of A.M.M.

Conferința "Ce faci te face!" 
Spiritualitatea filocalică și rezultate recente în neuroștiințe despre puterea obisnuințelor”

Parohia Ortodoxă “Sf. Gheorghe” din Londra, 186 Fleet Street, EC4A 2HR, organizează sâmbătă, 20 Aprilie 2019, ora 18:00, după slujba Vecerniei, conferința “CE FACI TE FACE! Spiritualitatea filocalică și rezultate recente în neuroștiințe despre puterea obișnuințelor” susținută de Diacon Prof. Dr. Adrian Sorin Mihalache.

Evenimentul are ca scop promovarea credinței ortodoxe prin informarea publicului cu privire la învățăturile filocalice și noile descoperiri științifice care confirmă convergența dintre considerentele de ordin practic din neuroștiințele vieții spirituale și unele prescripții de viață duhovnicească formulate în creștinismul primelor veacuri.
Tema conferinței a fost propusă în speranța că aceste informații vor putea să ofere participanților un sprijin în confruntarea cu provocările lumii contemporane și schimbarea obișnuințelor specifice vieții moderne contrare învățăturilor creștine ortodoxe.
Totodată, organizatorii își doresc să promoveze activitatea și proiectele desfășurate de Romanian Orthodox Church & Center, inclusiv a proiectului «FII CTITOR!» inițiat în cadrul parohiei «Sfântul Gheorghe» din Londra pentru construcția unei biserici și a unui centru comunitar românesc care să permită dezvoltarea activităților misionare și cultural-educative dedicate membrilor comunității românești din Londra.
Peste 200 de persoane (adulți și copii) sunt așteptate să participe la eveniment.
Intrarea este liberă in limita locurilor disponibile. Rezervări se pot face pe site-ul eventbrite aici

Despre schimbare în politica românească și europeană

Fri. 26 Apr, 2019 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

PLUS_UK.jpg

Pe 26 aprilie, Dacian Cioloș și Manuel Costescu ne dau întâlnire la Londra în sala Old Theatre a London School of Economics.

Pentru că ne aflăm la exact o lună distanță de referendumul pentru justiție, principala temă abordată va fi schimbarea clasei politice în România.

Curentul schimbării pe scena politică românească a luat amploare în ultimii ani, reflectând dorința societății civile de a putea alege oameni corecți, bine pregătiți, care să îi reprezinte onest atât pe scena politică românească cât și pe cea europeană.

Finalul evenimentului va fi marcat printr-o sesiune de Q&A în care Dacian Cioloș și Manuel Costescu vor răspunde întrebărilor adresate din public.

Vino și tu pe 26 pentru a fi parte din noul val de schimbare prin care România trece acum.


Când: Vineri, 26 aprilie 2019, 18:15-20:30

Unde: Old Theatre
London School of Economics and Political Science Houghton Street, WC2A 2AE London, United Kingdom
