DUST

DUST

In the play DUST the subject is simple: the husband (the head of the family struggling to survive from a financial point of view) wins the jackpot in the Lotto. The happy event gradually becomes a "nuisance", through the various assumptions, with negative valences, of the wife.

HIGHWAY

American director, screenwriter, playwright, Neil LaBute develops in "Autobahn” characters that we can find on the streets of any city in the world today. The show proposes a journey inside a couple who go "on the road" through an "accident". Within the physical confines of an automobile, conflict spans the full range of emotions that can arise between two people.

FITORadea Old People's Book

THE BOOK OF THE ELDERLY

Szilágyi Domokos wrote The Book of the Elders drawing inspiration from his drawings Sandor plow. The verses are numbered; there are 699 verses, maybe 699 steps towards the great passage, an inner path of a man at the end of one road and the beginning of another.

IT'S ACTUALLY BEAUTIFUL

IT'S ACTUALLY BEAUTIFUL takes a close look at the relationships of a generation that stands out for running away from obligations, always looking for something better. A show about well-educated 30-somethings who bounce from one temporary job to another, are always on the road and live in semi-furnished homes, but whose social media profiles are updated non-stop and set up.

ICH BIN OFELIA

You could say that Ich Bin Ophelia it is a sample of theatrical theory, but done with maximum involvement and sensitivity. Intended to break down the levers of a classic text in order to reassemble them.

ILLUSIONS

show ILLUSIONS tells about the fate of two couples in the twilight of their existence. The four friends talk about love, about truths and lies, about illusions and unconfessed desires and unlived or broken dreams. Cast in the form of a sequence of monologues, the show takes place in an open space, where the backstage does not exist, the characters begin to reveal themselves on a journey about the illusion of life. The actors of Illusions take the stage looking for a fresh breath, delivering monologues accompanied by a live cello.

IN THE HEART OF THE NIGHT – THE LEAR EPISODE

IN THE HEART OF THE NIGHT – THE LEAR EPISODE starts from the subject of the Shakespearean text: a king wants to abdicate and divide his kingdom among his three daughters, but before making any decision he asks them to express his love for him. Following the evidence of affection, he decides to banish his youngest daughter, disturbed by the sincerity and naturalness of the confession. But he is rejected by his eldest daughters and, with his mind troubled by suffering, ends up wandering at random.

A STRANGE INCIDENT WITH A DOG AT MIDNIGHT

Christopher is not dreaming. He calculates, analyzes, weighs, measures, observes and perceives life through the unpoetic filters of logic. He is a special teenager, 15 years old, with Asperger syndrome, who defines himself as a "mathematician with some behavioral difficulties". A child Sherlock Holmes, who knows for sure that killing Wellington the dog with a fork is the mystery that only his little gray cells can solve.

ORLANDO

ORLANDO he is at the same time a boy, a woman, a novel, in different eras, in different styles, and now also a monodrama at the Csokonai National Theater in Debrecen, Hungary. It's time travel: different stations from the Elizabethan era to the 20th century.

TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Tip of the Iceberg – A multinational company is shaken by the suicides of three of its employees, all of which happened in less than 5 months. From the headquarters of the company in Madrid, Sofia Cuevas is sent to investigate what happened. Arriving at the scene, she tries to find the answer to the question: "why do company employees commit suicide?".

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS / A GOOD GAME

With a little help from my friends it's a show about a generation's cry of rage that needs to be heard and understood. In the middle of a summer night, on a beach, in a strange landscape, a game takes place that is as dangerous as it is seductive. Some teenagers come to the sea to have fun, to fall in love, to dream and maybe to die.

THE BELGRADE TRILOGY

Spectators are invited to a play that, in a comic or dramatic tone, presents the challenges and difficulties that young people face in trying to integrate in their adopted countries. THE BELGRADE TRILOGY presents three stories of young people from Belgrade who choose to leave their native country where they see no solution for their future. All the characters in the Belgrade Trilogy show emigrate to something, somewhere, in different contexts. For them, leaving comes with failure.

ANNIVERSARY

ANNIVERSARY is a contemporary Dutch text, the playwright - Jeroen Van Den Berg - being a "basic" director, directing teacher and successful playwright. The story is extremely tough, very alive, very current. The text "speaks" in our language, today's language.... it's a powerful life story and I think many viewers will find themselves - either in one of the five characters, or in acquaintances, friends who are going through or have gone through situations like those in the show.

AGAMEMNON

Agamemnon takes a critical x-ray of contemporary man and has the intensity of a Formula 1 race. The three heroes run chaotically through the supermarket districts, where they struggle not to lose control of their own lives.
Homo consumens characters (psychoanalytically anchored in the oral stage) forget to be and focus on having.

BLUE. YELLOW. RED

Putting aside the barrier of inhibition in front of what the oppressive system in Romania meant before '89, we descend into a painful poetic density about the beauties of the clichéd homeland, about the sarcastic arc of the fence of freedoms, of words spoken in whispers.
