Celebrating 30 years from the Communist Fall in 1989, we want to build a theater show about its political victims. The main objective is to raise awerness about what Freedom means, expecially for the young generation who didn't experienced the sistem. We strongly believe that freedom is a choice, an act, a responsability, not a lack of liability.
We want to make a show based on the detention years of the romanian communist political prisoners. We'd like to start from the well-known text "The Dwarf from the Summer Garden" written by Dumitru Radu Popescu, member of the Romanian Academy, in 1972. Through this show we want to offer a new perspective on the freedom concept. It will be an istoric creation, but not a reconstruction, an ethical history, about TRUTH, RESPECT, ACCEPTANCE and how we could used them in our everyday life.
Maria Boitos is accused for high betrayal against the sistem. She is interrogated and violated. She becomes pregnant and they send her to the Mislea Prison for women. Durring the execution trial, she faints and it is descovered to be pregnant. Maria is let to live eleven more month of terror and humiliation. She also passes the process of dehumanization specific for the Pitești Experiment. After she get birth she is executed.
We are trying to get a partnership with the roumanian institutions specialised in Communist Crimes. Out project is ready to start the production. We are 13 people: 8 actors, one director, one scenographer, one light designer, one sound designer and one manager). We have all the scketches needed ready for further actions.
We also have a partnership with the "Unteatru Independent Theater" from Bucharest, who can lend us their space. The space is destined for the underground movement in theater, young creators being welcomed to performe here. It was also reconised and praised with the Excellence Title by UNITER ( Romanian Theater Union) for their work. However it is a place for the young creators, great names passed its doors, Andrei Șerban directed "The Seagull" A.P. Cehov here, also Oana Pellea and Andreea Gavriliu performed on this stage.
We have to start building the show. The construction of the actions, starting the rehearsals with the actor. Building the set and making the costumes.
We will like to set the premiere of the show on 17th december 2019, celebrating 30 years from the first public scream for freedom in Romania. The show will have to meet the audience from different parts of Romania and not only, and we will take care of it along the way.
We are Florin Liță, theater director, Mădălina Sandu, set and costume designer, Adrian Piciorea, sound designer, Dragoș Margineanu, light designer and Irina Radu, project manager.
The only thing that can make this project not succed is the lack of finacial resource.
One fine body…
