Contemporary Playwrighting in Romania

Produced and presented by Reactor – a place for creative experiments

Reactor de creație și experiment
Focus: Contemporary Dramaturgy

Eight performances written by eight contemporary Romanian playwrights. The project aims to gather a selection of representative performances from some of Romania’s young playwrights working today. Despite differing styles, they are all dealing with current issues faced by their mostly young audience: from parental abandonment, the educational system or the complex ways they are being influenced by pop culture, to couple relations and the sense of imminent planetary disaster. Six of these performances have been produced by the independent theatre Reactor, based in Cluj, Transylvania, while two others are coproductions of four other independent cultural organizations.
