The performance „Nathan the wise”, after Gotthold Ephraim Lessing and directed by Armin Petras, is the result of one of the biggest co-production projects carried on by Teatrul Național „Radu Stanca” Sibiu, along with the National Theatre in Stuttgart. The project will not confine itself to a simple staging of the theatre play, as it also pursues actual goals, the social dimension of terrorism and racism in particular, in these two countries, each with its singularities. Lessing’s text will be „translated” by considering the insight of the debates tackling violence in nowadays Europe. Internationally renowned artists are part of the cast, which includes names such as Ofelia Popii, awarded with important prizes in Romania, Scotland (Edinburgh) and Japan (Tokyo), Peter Kurth and Katharina Knap, two of the actors of the theatre in Stuttgart, who received this year the titles of „Actor of the year”, and „Young actress of the year” respectively, awards granted by a jury of critics from the theatre trade magazine „Theater heute”. Laila Bokhari, an expert in terrorism issues and an important politician of Pakistani origin who has settled in Norway, will also participate in the project. Another important artist to join the project is Marius Mihalache, a renowned dulcimer performer, who will be part of the performance’s cast in both countries. For the representations taking place in Sibiu and Stuttgart this permanent cast will be completed with a team of actors and acting students from each city.
