The 9th edition of Creepy Animation Night showcases a marathon of bizarre and horror animations, with the newest titles the genre has to offer in selection, in an event that thrills senses and imagination.

The screening at Cinemateca Eforie is preceded by a performance of DIOSA, a project novel for Romania, initiated by composer and conductor Simona Strungaru. A complex musical concept, which combines classic music from various periods of history with present day electronic music.

The artists behind the project are Simona Strungaru (conductor, piano), Gabriela Petecilă (flute), Bogdan Gugu (clarinet), Iulian Niţică (contrabassoon), Sebastian Burneci (trumpet), Cristian Lăbuş (bass trombone), and Natalia Pancec (violin).

The performance is accompanied by visuals created at the most recent edition of Animation Worksheep, the intensive workshop organized by Anim’est. As a theme, it explores the end of day and time, when strange creatures come to life and surprising, frightening events take place, welcomed by the darkest night. 

The show ends with a performance sharing the same theme, the struggle with time, by choreographer, actor and dancer Paul Cimpoieru.
