The George Ciprian Theatre Buzău

Project Leader (Romania)

The “George Ciprian” Theatre Buzău is the oldest project-based theatre in Romania. We are producers and curators of cultural events without having a fixed company of actors, which gives us great flexibility in our programming. We are affiliated with some of the most prestigious theatre and film universities in Romania, often showcasing their students’ work. Our two annual festivals – Buzău Love Theatre (14th edition) and Young Theatre’s Week (4th edition) have grown in scale and reputation over the years. We are constantly seeking to explore the potential of technology in the performing arts and have already originated other two technology-based projects in national premiere, namely “Tele-City” and “Orpheus and Euridice”, both of them conceived by Marina Hanganu, Artistic Director of “Tele-Encounters”. “Tele-City” was the first telematic performance research project in Romania set in an educational context, which resulted in the publication of a book on art and pedagogy. “Orpheus and Euridice” was a short binaural sound theatre piece acted entirely by blind and partially sighted children and teenagers from the Special High School for the Visually Impaired Buzău.
