How many times have you wallowed in your own emotional slime just because it felt more just that trying to get better? How many times did trying to get better seem to lead further down, regardless of the optimistic direction and of your self-saving intentions? How many times did it seem that everyone is more adapted to life on Earth than you?
Four performers have been commissioned by a director to create a performance about identity crisis and the depression that follows, but it’s unclear how far they should go. They could mess up, they could never come back from this. But there are many ways of dealing with the situation, mindfulness sessions, distressing incursions into the past, abandonment and so on.
The performance will be followed a presentation of the artistic process made by Mihai Păcurar.
Reactor (Reactor – a place for creative experiments - full name) is an independent theatre founded in 2014 and focusing on contemporary playwriting, artistic experiment and social themes. It is also encouraging constant artistic development by organizing workshops for theatre professionals as well as the general public, and by offering residencies for emerging artists. One of the performances included in this series have been created during the Fresh Start residency for young professionals happening at Reactor since 2016 (The Rest of Our Lives).
Reactor is also working towards a more open and reciprocal relation with its audience, by audience developing programs, cultural mediation and community activities. One of the productions included in this series has been voted by the audience to be staged, after presenting the first 15 minutes of it (I Like Sushi).
