Performance: Hey neighbor, hey you! (Romania)
With REACTIV Festival: a laboratory of experiences and experiments in which we aim to rediscover ourselves as individuals and groups
The Educational Centre of the Performative Arts CEVA in Targu Neamt, Romania presented a performance of Hey neighbor, hey you! with the REACTIV festival livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 3 September 2021.
Who are we?
Hi, hello, greetings!
We are the Educational Centre of the Performative Arts CEVA, from community, education, what lies ahead, and art. We are some teenagers from Targu Neamt and its surroundings. There’s also Colea, our colleague from the Moldavian Republic. Our town resides at the foot of the Neamt’s Citadel, with Ozana here, really close. Targu Neamt is a town full of stories that we want to tell.
We talk about our community and about what interests us, topics which appear in all teenage conversations. WE want to make a change with our something, discover as much as we can, feel good with ourselves and those around us.
About our performance
Hey neighbor, hey you!
“You know that if it was meant to be,
It wouldn’t have been a song”
Isn’t it so? If it were to be, it wouldn’t have been as it is now. To be more precise, we are referring to everything that happens around us and today’s problems: people who judge excessively, bullying, racism, the loss of humanity, the chase after money, after the perfect job, gossip at every corner, and so on. So, if all of these hadn’t been and we would have lived in a perfect pink background world, we wouldn’t have asked ourselves millions of questions and we wouldn’t have had this wish to change something. We believe that, in the end, society’s imperfection brought something good among us as well. Sometimes our curiosity cracks. It’s exhausting to keep wondering where you’ll be, what you will be doing and how… Along our long discussions filled with endless sentences about the past,present and future, we planned out a... Futuristic performance, in which we voice our concerns, but not by crying and whimpering, but more so enjoying ourselves. It’s something with #hip hip hooray. And be warned! This isn't only about teenagers, it’s about all those who have questions.
we will ask ourselves once more,
Alexandra, Bianca, Colea, Mara, Miru, Mișa, Raluca, Tatiana with a bit of help from: Jo Brăilescu, Ovidiu Cosovanu, Daniel Chirilă
