At the Reactor of Creation and Experiment

The atmosphere of a multicultural city is captured in a bilingual, Romanian-Maghrebian performance about the connections between people and places.

Some people run away from the place where they are born, feeling that they cannot evolve there, others, on the contrary, stay in the same place all their lives, they can only grow where their roots are. The former carry their personal stories like baggage, the latter carry their stories with their heavy roots.  

All these people meet in a city, let's say Cluj, but not necessarily, a technological, young, touristy, multicultural city, with a good image, and the best image, say specialists in the art of photography, is taken during the golden hour, at dawn or dusk, when the light is warm and soft. Beyond the golden hour's glare remain people and their stories, which connect regardless of the language they speak. What happens after the warm and soft light disappears?

The performance is a co-production of Reactor-Váróterem Projekt and was created as part of the Fágáș project. Multicultural perspectives - strengthening cultural entrepreneurship in Cluj-Napoca in an inter-ethnic-Romanian-Hungarian context, funded by the EEA Grants 2014-2021 within the RO-CULTURA Programme, call Strengthening Cultural Entrepreneurship and Audience and Audience Development (Session 3). The project aims to collaborate between the two theatres and to develop the public in Cluj by offering a unified perspective of the Romanian and Hungarian independent theatre in the city.

The project has a non-reimbursable value of 983.475,20 lei (198.758,15 euro), runs from November 2022 to February 2024 and aims to bring together the Romanian and Hungarian theatre audience in Cluj-Napoca, through a joint programme of events of two independent theatres: Reactor de creație e experiment and Váróterem Projekt (including two exchanges of performances and two bilingual productions). The project also includes a professional development dimension for cultural operators in Cluj, coordinated by Para Film &Teater, a Norwegian organisation.
