Europalia Romania: Karpov not Kasparov & Deathbycoconut

Facebook event Share Tweet

Double bill with the most exciting from the Romanian indie scene

The eccentric duo Karpov not Kasparov follow the rules and strategies of chess  through action and reaction of drums, synthesizers and voice. Since chess is an oriental game they got deeply inspired by oriental folklore which shines out in their catchy danceable sound. Their live shows include aerobic classes, contemporary dance moves, silent movie screenings, ballet acts, or projections of live chess games played by the audience.

Rising star of the Belgian Cinema, Anthony Nti was born in Ghana and moved to Belgium when he was ten years old.  Mesmerized by the movies he saw, he accomplished his studies in Brussels to become a film director. His videoclips and short films obtained several awards at international film festivals and some of them went viral on the internet. EUROPALIA sent Anthony and his assistant director Chingiz Karibekov to Bucharest for 10 days to encounter many Romanian artists and shoot the new video clip of Karpov not Kasparov.
