Interview with Mihaela Drăgan about Tell Them About Me / Del Duma (Romania)

Roma Theatre Retrospective 2021

Friday 22 October 2021 and Tuesday 30 November 2021

Interview by Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros.

Based on her own experiences and interviews with Roma women, Mihaela Drăgan wrote the monodrama Tell Them About Me. The play presents the diversity, opportunities, challenges, joys, and trials of the Roma society in Romania, all from the perspective of womenamong whom we can discover every day heroes. The performance focuses on the compatibility of tradition and modernity and the existence of Roma and Romanian identity within one nation, one community, or even in one person. The main focus of the play is on early marriages in Romania, mostly among Roma communities.
