SI LINISTEA ARE PULS
TEATRU ANDRE MURESANU, SFANTU GHEORGHE
The adaptation of the play, ‘Even Stillness Breathes Softly Against A Brick Wall’ by Brad Birch, follows 3 young couples facing the monotony of their day to day existance almost entirely narrated by themselves. The slow build up of tention, love, lust and life acts as a great reflection on to modern society and cubical working lives which eventually leads to their meltdown.
Orginally created for just 2 actors, this forth collaboration with Director Horia Suru pushed the idea of the forth wall physically and technically with carefully choreographed movements in space in which actors move through a house with their sound travelling with them. The immersive concept of the show asks the audience to move and travel freely in the space, choosing which character they prefer to watch.
TEATRU BACOVIA, BACAU
AMPHITRION 38 is a play written in 1929 by the French dramatist Jean Giraudoux, the number in the title being Giraudoux's whimsical approximation of how many times the story had been told on stage previously.
Based on the Greek legend of Zeus' rape of Alcmene, wife of Amphitryon, illustrates that neither the wiles of men nor the caprices of gods are effective against the constancy of devotion of a wife (Alkmena.) Jupiter attempts to rape Alkmena but discovers he must reckon with a woman far too intelligent to be led astray by passion
Directed By Horia Suru, Choreography by Sophie Duncan and Set Design by Cristian Marin.
TEATRU TOMA CARAGIU, PLOIESTI
Although it is the fifth collaboration with Director Horia Suru, this is the first show created for the Revista Theatre - the Romanian equivalent of cabaret / variety style performance. The show features dancers, actors and singers in the well respected Teatru Toma Caragiu, in Ploiesti, around 40minutes from the National Capital, Bucuresti.
The original concept follows the story of a group of artists, auditioning for a new production due to premier in China. Each artist has their moment in the spotlight, causing catty squabbles, one-upmanship and comedy throughout. With a score of adapted, well known music including funk, folk, swing and pop, played by the theatre’s resident live band, the show aims to revive the Revista style to a modern day audience.
