Tangaj Collective was founded in 2014 by choreographer Simona Deaconescu. It functions as a cultural NGO, based in Bucharest, that produces the artistic works created by Simona Deaconescu and her collaborators, doubled by educational programs and touring. The company also organizes curated showcase platforms and cultural projects dedicated to the local community. The company is annually funded by The Administration of the National Cultural Fund on project-based funding, in 2021 being awarded by the fund for Promoting the Romanian Culture Outside the Borders. Tangaj Collective has developed one of the most popular training programs in contemporary dance for non-professionals in Bucharest, with over 3000 participants over time, doubled by regular workshops on dance technique and interdisciplinary composition for professional dancers, led by Simona Deaconescu and her collaborators. Starting 2015, Tangaj Collective has been organizing BIDFF – Bucharest International Dance Film Festival. BIDFF is a platform dedicated to the most courageous artists in the field of dance, film, and digital art. In parallel, BIDFF has developed a laboratory to support the production of domestic dance films.
