A Performance of Rovegan
by Catinca Drăgănescu, in Bucharest, Romania
Centrul de Teatru Educational Replika in Bucharest, Romania presented a performance of Rovegan by Catinca Drăgănescu livestreamed on the commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Sunday 26 January 2020 at 9 a.m. PST (Vancouver, UTC-8) / 12 p.m. EST (New York, UTC-5) / 5 p.m. GMT (London, UTC-0) / 18:00 CET (Budapest, UTC+1) / 19:00 EET (Bucharest, UTC+2).
Following the course of a contemporary fairy-tale, the show fictionalizes the experience of mothers who have to go to work in Italy and questions the effects of such dislocation on a personal and social level. Rovegan takes the form of a storytelling chorus following the story of a family along three generations of women and the way they each understand fighting for a better life.
