This performance is a project inspired by „La Scene Surveillee” and „The Night” from „The Trilogy of the Removal”, written by George Banu, and „The Phantom or the Doubt of the Theatre” by Monique Borie, but also from the experiences Mr. Gavriil Pinte has had over the last years, held in spaces more or less conventional. «A project about power and freedom, about being watched from above, from nearby and from within. And a project about the magical force of the theatre in an open public space which is also closed, about certainties and uncertainties of the illuminated night. I remember a text from „A midsummer’s...” our un-dreamed dream. „Theatre fights with the fears created by darkness. (…) It is a remedy against all fears which come from the dark. We make theatre in the heart of the night from the fear of the Night itself. And also, from the desire to forget the wonderings of the day. We play to save ourselves! From the night, from the day! Always and forever, at a crossroads!” Hamlet - a nocturnal play, a ghostly one. A space haunted by ghosts and spies. The surveillance methods but also the fear - makes everyone whisper and communicate in a coded manner, with inaudible signs and gestures… or drive them to refuse all communication.» (Gavriil Pinte)
Translated into English
