07 Apr 2016 The Placebo (D)Effect – The Ninth 9G Show at NTB
The Placebo (D)Effect – The Ninth 9G Show at NTB

At the second edition of the 9G at NTB Programme, a group of young graduates from the Theatre Faculty of Cluj (class of Bács Miklós) were proposing a bold and unusual project, risky and captivating at the same time. A project involving much teamwork, many trials and a working method less practised in Romania: a drama and acting workshop, coordinated by actor Ştefan Lupu, according to the formula work in progress, meant to be concluded with a show born from improvisation. From actors, and from life, from the frailty of theatre, on a topic about the dramas of high-tech man. A kind of Approximate Man of our paradoxical (and Dadaist) times. This week – on Thursday, 7 April, and Friday, 8 April 2016 – a new production of the young artists is presented to the audience: The Placebo (D)Effect. A lively, engaging and provocative show, about the artificial world we inhabit, about the loneliness caused by excessive communication, about the human in us and about the danger of technological progress. About the things we have forgotten or replaced with technology, about the fear to return to the real life … because the virtual one has become more satisfying. The Placebo (D)Effect is a show with a guaranteed therapeutic effect. Because both the laughter and the thrill, but also the stories told with honesty, the dance and especially the music belong to our human identity. A show reminding us of the importance of real life. 3 stories, 3 relationships and an encounter like a therapy session, where the only therapist is the theatre. 100% 9G at NTB. 100% about the world nowadays.                                                 Ştefan Lupu: The Placebo (D)Effect intertwines three stories of apparently normal people in an abnormal society, forcing more and more actively the 21st century individual to become artificial, dependent and lonely, against his will, with a great and surprising lack of judgment. As fabulous as the technological evolution of the last decades is, as deprived of essence we become involuntarily, thus moving away from the human spirit and qualities. Our thoughts and lives "are galloping on optic fibre" and our whole universe seems to become increasingly toxic and harmful, us ending up expressing our feelings per e-mail. The Placebo (D)Effect is a caustic show, debating the conflict between the natural and the artificial, the real and unreal, the plastic and the biodegradable human soul. Everything is rendered on stage on a comic note, with dramatic dancing reflections. The escape from a real world to a virtual one in which everything seems to be perfect, forces the viewer to ask himself which are the truly important things in our bipolar, plasticised life, carefully wrapped like a product with an expiry date. The effect of the (D)effect translates into the desire to hold a loved one in your arms and to tell him/her "so happy to see you", "I missed you", "I love you". Chat conversation end           Sent from Messenger Placebo (D)Effect                                             Impressions from the spectators, connoisseurs after the viewing (source Facebook): “I have witnessed today, at the wonderful time of 2 pm, a preview of a 9G project at NTB, which knocked me off my feet! It transformed my whole day, from (…), into filled with joy and meaning! It even lured the sun out of its den! Bravo, you gifted, wonderful, profound people of the big cities!” Alina Herescu – scenographer “I sincerely hope that the show we have previewed yesterday, The Placebo (D)Effect (part of the 9G programme), created by Ştefan Lupu together with a splendid team of actors: Alina Petrică, Vlad Nemeş, Ioana Predescu, Rareş Florin Stoica and George Bîrsan shall assert itself into the repertoire of the National Theatre of Bucharest. It is a gem of a show, a beautiful and witty creation, with artists proving that both the present and the future of Romanian theatre are in safe hands! Congratulations!”Gina Şerbănescu – dance critic “Because the young generation lives for the truth. Because the young generation must pull the strings, which society clings onto. Because the young generation means the future. Because starting with April, at NTB (Small Hall) things are starting to change, for the better. ”The Placebo (D)Effect”!”Dragoş N. Savu – photographer.   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
