In the Shade by Mircea Albuţiu
Standing in the shade, Mircea Albuțiu documents the intimate, behind-the-scenes world of ballet in the most moving way, capturing moments of the dancers’ lives that usually remain hidden.
His project started in November 2011 at the Choreography High School in Cluj-Napoca. In January 2012 he moved into the Opera, to the ballet ensemble itself.
Discover the unique atmosphere of the before and after performance, together with the dancers’ emotions and their hard work, pirouette by pirouette.
