The “Dan Puric Passe-Partout Theatre Company”, in collaboration with the “Ion Dacian” National Operetta Theatre, organizes, today, in the Operetta Theatre’s Foyer, the opening of the “Royal Fashion” photography exhibition, accompanied by the launch of the album of the same title, a release informs.
“Royal Fashion” is the latest performance signed by Dan Puric, produced in collaboration with the “Ion Dacian” National Operetta Theatre. It premiered on May 10, 2010, the Romanian Monarchy Day.
The show is an original fable about monarchy and power. The costumes designed by Doina Levintza, the stage setting signed by Corina Gramosteanu and Traian Vlas’s choreography contribute, in turn, to shaping the universe imagined by Dan Puric, distilling moments and dismantling conventions.
The album presents the show from four different angles: rehearsals (making of), photographs made during the performance, fashion shots presenting Doina Levintza’s creations, which are featured in the show, and archive photographs of the Romanian Royal Family’s members.
Both the photographs included in the exhibition and those in the album were taken by Japanese photograph Tomoaki Minoda, during rehearsals and during the first presentations of the “Royal Fashion” performance.
Steven Groningen, President & CEO of Raiffeisen Bank, stated, in reference to this project: “We already have a tradition of collaborating with Dan Puric and the Passe-Partout company and, every time, we had the satisfaction of taking part in a high quality artistic endeavour. I am happy we have managed to offer, by opening this exhibition and by editing the “Royal Fashion” album, a cultural reference point which deserves to be known, seen and visited”.
