"Each of the five scenes of the show is a fiction inspired by a true or a certain kind of public discourse present in nowadays Romanian society: from Baia Mare wall built to separate the Roma community from the main road of the city and up marking of increasingly radical differences between social classes, ethnicities and generations. Under the pretext of respect for social conventions and citizens’ rescue, new rules are actually invented, designed to stigmatize difference and blur everything that would bring us together. More serious than the radicalization of political discourse on poverty - seen as the fault of the incapable to be effective - is that it has contaminated public space and could become a normal, fair perspective, perfectly justified." (Gianina Cărbunariu) Gianina Cărbunariu is considered l’enfant terrible of contemporary Romanian drama. She began studying drama in 1999, at the I.L. Caragiale National University of Theatre and Film Bucharest, where she continued a Masters in Dramatic Writing (2006). Gianina is a founding member of the group dramAcum, a platform for developing and promoting Romanian drama. Her plays "Stop the Tempo" (2003) and "mady-baby.edu/Kebab" (2004), which she staged at Teatrul LUNI de la Green Hours and at Teatrul Foarte Mic, are translated, published and staged in Germany, France, Ireland, Poland, Great Britain and Italy.
