,,Corp Bazar”/“Bazar Body” is a performance where the choreographers ask questions about the social and individual reality in which they live. Under the shape of an interiorized monologue, always put under a question mark, the performance speaks about interrelation and lack of communication.
Choreographed and performed by :
,,Nu știu”/“I don’t know”
A performance about 4 girls that try to resist. Resist to them selves and to the others, to the imagery world in their head and to the social reality they suddenly woke up in.

“Distopie. Shakespeare. Remix” is that kind of performance that lifts one’s eyebrow and obliges one to have an attitude. It is a relevant answer to the worn out question “Is Shakespeare still contemporary?” – yes, he still is, as long as there are theatre creators who will tell us his stories using our language.

“Iaacovi and Leidental” seems to be – at the first site – a complicated puzzle. A puzzle that requires a lot of patience to unravel. However, it is a fascinating puzzle that will not leave one alone until it is unraveled. More than that, it will not leave one alone not even after one unravels it.

,,Peretele”/“The Wall” is a big story with two pockets, in which one can fit two little stories that influence each other, complete each other, they even laugh about each other – I would dare to say.
There is singing in our performance, quite a lot, because, sometimes, life puts one in such situations where speaking can’t help one to make his/ her point, so that requires musical notes. Because the music has the gift to directly address to the soul, more than the restrictive logic of the phrases that one throws against another during a life time. “The wall” is not what we would call a musical ( I see that the English term “musical” is generally used, so I conform). “The Wall” is a theatre play with sang parts. So you won’t see ballet corps, shinny suites with spangles and ostrich feathers. You will see some characters who escape to singing once in a while and come back again among us, the prose speakers, as an astronaut comes back form the weightlessness of his space cabin, to the burden of his own being. “The Wall” is a comedy. And, because laughter can only define itself through the existence of crying in this world, “The Wall” is, at the same time, a drama.” Lia Bugnar
