Farid Fairuz (Bucharest/Berlin/Beirut)

Farid Fairuz took by storm in 2009 the Romanian cultural scene with his manifesto and subsequent critical performances on capitalism, sexuality, cultural production and religion that sharply mirror failures of the local society.
Until he reinvented himself as Farid Fairuz and assumed a fictional biography and another way to interact with the public space, the artist Mihai Mihalcea was one of the most active in the field of contemporary dance in Romania, after 1989. He initiated many of the projects that led to the international recognition of Romanian contemporary dance and he played a key role in the establishment of structures and institutions that have become landmarks of this area. He was the director (2005-2013) of the National Dance Center in Bucharest, a public institution subsidized by The Ministry of Culture.
He was artist in residence at Tanzquartier Wien, National Center of Dance Paris, Hebbel Theater Berlin, Centre National de Franche-Comte Chorégraphique of Belfort, La Manufacture, Atelier du Rhin - dramatique regional centers, Colmar and he presented his work in many festivals across Europe, such as Springdance (Utrecht), Tanz im August (Berlin), Paris quartier d'été (Paris).
In 2006 he was nominated for “Paris-Europe Prix 2006” by Maison d'Europe et d'Orient, Paris. In 2010, together with Manuel Pelmus and Brynjar Bandlien he founded Caminul Cultural, a project supported by ERSTE Foundation.
In 20013 Farid Fairuz is fellow at Akademie der Künste, section Performing Arts.
