An old man and an old woman wait in their house for the town to arrive, because tonight the old man is about to reveal everything.

One of the longest-running plays on Bucharest’s stage, this is a rare opportunity to see one of Romania’s best loved theatre companies take on Ionesco’s classic absurd comedy.

The Bulandra Theatre Company has been and is still the meeting point of the most renowned creators of Romanian theatre. Founded in 1947 by the City of Bucharest, the new institution, called the City Theatre, started its activities with a group of nine actors under the direction of the great Romanian actress Lucia Sturdza Bulandra. Seen as a place of political opposition, the Bulandra faced severe censorship during the Communist era but survived and, since Ceausescu’s fall in 1989, the theatre has enjoyed success both at home and abroad.

Part of the Romanian Cultural Days in Dublin.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
