With ”Sânziana and Pepelea” we rediscover the childhood of Romanian theatre, that playful, amusing naivete that speaks many thruths about the Romanian nature that are still valid; a very theatrical text with scenic potential... ”Yes, it’s playful” says the director, ”it was a time when we discovered scenic effects, sunroof, electric light, fast changing scenery, dropping from the ceiling…and indeed, what we can see in Alecsandri, in a more or less calculated way, is folklore knowledge. We exploited this folklore, not superficially, but in depth: we got to wicked fairies, witches, curses, and links with the Christian religion, with orthodoxy. However, the aim of the performance is to entertain”.
Not recommended for children under 12 years.
