Performance of Mine by Mădălina Stoica
Created During the Drama 5 Playwriting Residency at Reactor in Cluj, Romania.
Reactor in Cluj, Romania presents a performance of Mine by Mădălina Stoica, which was created in the sixth edition of the Drama 5 playwriting residency at Reactor. Each year, five playwrights spend a month at Reactor, writing, receiving mentorship from an experienced author and professor, and feedback from a number of young theatre professionals. In the end, one of the resulting plays is staged at Reactor, while the others have public readings. Mine is the staging of this year’s winner.
A room with just one bed, a door and a window to nothing. Mine is a performance that speaks about the illusion of comfort and about things that connect us to each other so strongly that we stop seeing ourselves as whole individuals. How hard is it to leave when everything seems perfect?
Mine is a play about a brother and a sister who have to deal with their mother’s death. At the same time, it’s a play about two adults, about childhood trauma, about isolation, co-dependency, and forced growing up. And in the end, it’s a story about intimacy where I tried to answer the question: why do we stay?
