Interview with Mihaela Drăgan about Romacen – The Age of the Witch / Romacen – Vremea vrăjitoarei (Romania)
Roma Theatre Retrospective 2021
Interview by Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros.
The performance of the Giuvlipen company Romacen - The Age of the Witch tells the story of six cyber-witches who created an isolated, futuristic society called Romacen. The society is feminist and utopian which functions according to its own norms and law system. The reason for creating this society was that the members are fed up with the oppression of white people. With the help of technology and techno magic power it becomes possible to travel in time, create humanoid robots and make a direct cyber-attack against the non-Roma. The main question of the play is whether the new world can really be solidary and faithful to the original idea?
