“Radu Stanca” National Theatre in Sibiu invites spectators to a new premiere. “The HOPE Project 2021”, a production by Bogdan Sărătean
At the beginning of October 2021, “Radu Stanca” National Theatre in Sibiu invites spectators to a compelling and astonishing production, “The HOPE Project 2021”. Produced by Bogdan Sărătean, “The HOPE Project 2021” features a cast composed of Cristian Stanca, Codruța Vasiu, Veronica Arizancu, Ioana Blaga Frunzescu, Cătălin Neghină, Eduard Pătrașcu, Vlad Robaş, Cristina Stoleriu; project assistant Denisa Bar, and project manager Luminița Bîrsan. On 1 October 2021, at 7 p.m., the audience can see a preview, while on 2 October 2021, the premiere will take place at TNRS Big Hall. ‘In 2021, eight actors come up on stage to discuss hope, its sources, and its forms in these strange times. The transition to characters, to universal dramaturgy is smooth, other times, abrupt. It’s a pirandellian exercise of questioning the self. At one point, things get serious, there’s no playing, and the stage abounds with the absence of those who are no longer with us. In the meantime, we laugh and talk about cartoon characters, we mock theatre clichés, and we ourselves fall for them. I will say no more; it’s a performance you simply live. For me, it was a long-overdue drama exercise. “The Hope Project 2021”, says director Bogdan Sărătean.
