Show Reprise at NTB!

In a new role, Adela Mărculescu returns to the play "The Idol and Ion Anapoda" On Wednesday, November 7th, 2018, from 7.30 p.m., the Studio Hall of the National Theatre of Bucharest resumes Idol and Ion Anapoda by G. M. Zamfirescu, a long-run interwar comedy, enacted twice on the stages of this theatre (in 1980 and 2006), both in the stage direction of prestigious director Ion Cojar. Starting with this performance, the role of an irresistible humour, of Stavaroaia, "an aunt who has not yet given up life", shall be taken over by Adela Marculescu, after the withdrawal from the theatrical activity of Ileana Stana Ionescu, the one who held this role in both above-mentioned enactments. In the 1980 version of the show, Adela Marculescu was the impersonator of the niece Mioara! Dan Puric, the performer of Ion Anapoda, also assumed his directorial duties after master Ion Cojar left the great stage of the world, assuming the role of “conductor” of the cast and taking care of the nuances of interpretation at each reprise of the show or of the stand-ins. His partner is Irina Cojar, the great-granddaughter of playwright George Mihail Zamfirescu and granddaughter of director Ion Cojar and well-known national actress Raluca Zamfirescu. Her grandparents are also those who guided her steps to her debut in 2006 in this show. Frosa, the Dream Idol is, in her performance, a character with two appearances, but not two faces, spiritually resonating with Ion on a score reserved for the sensible and ... more different than the others, as you shall notice coming to this show where the other roles, well highlighted and each with its dramaturgical flavour, are performed by: Ileana Olteanu / Cesonia Postelnicu, Silviu Biris, Alexandru Hasnas, Afrodita Androne / Erika Baiesu. Based on a story rife with optimism and a special magnetism to the audience, The Idol and Ion Anapoda delighted generations of spectators and still displays a great power of seduction, ranging from season to season among the most popular comedies from the repertoire. Tickets can be purchased from the NTB box office, from the Grand Hall lobby, as well as online on   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu

These shall witness free of charge plays from each of the partner theatres of the project 5 High Schools – 5 Theatres: the Small Theatre, the I.L.

Since the very first edition which started in 2011 at the initiative of the ECDL Romania, over 1000 pupils from 30 different Bucharest high schools have taken part in this project. Alternative education plays a vital role in the development of young people, who must further be directed towards real and correct values, including cultural values. The ECDL initiatives promote the balanced development of youngsters, pursuing international careers and IT&C certifications, but also understanding the act of culture, as a completion of their knowledge and competences gained in school. You are welcome on Wednesday, 3rd October 2018, from 11:00 a.m., to the Festive Hall of the I.N. Socolescu Technical Architecture College (12 Occidentului St., Bucharest).  You can find out more information on the project 5 High Schools - 5 Theatres on or on ECDL – European Computer Driving Licence – international standard for the certification of digital competences.   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu

15 Nov 2018 Romania, 100 Years of Architectural Competitions
Romania, 100 Years of Architectural Competitions

Thursday, November 15th, 2018, from 6.00 p.m., the foyer on the floor of the Studio Hall hosts the exhibition Romania - 100 Years of Architectural Competitions, organized by the Faculty of Architecture of Spiru Haret and UAR Sector 2. Curator: PhD lecturer arch. Teodorescu Nicoleta Doina. The year 1918 meant the fulfilment of the dream, of the ideal and the hopes of many generations of Romanians who wanted, promoted and identified opportunities in the European context of the time. The century that passed, which we celebrate this year, is the century in which the generations that have lived on these lands created the spatial expression of the Romanian spirit, as we can identify it today. Among those called to materialize this spatial expression, we include architects, and the exhibition we propose is their effort to capture in their proposals and projects, their spirit and aspirations. Far from reviewing the creation of Romanian architecture over a century, which would have required a totally different approach, the exhibition Romania, 100 Years of Architectural Competitions, draws attention to the value of the Architecture Contest. Its tradition is based on the quality of the undeniable results, a tradition that is increasingly ignored, the selection of projects being often based on criteria far from the quality of the resulting constructed object. On the other hand, the Architecture Contest, open, accessible, has allowed the assertion of young gifted architects, promoters of original visions of the built space. We can mention here the two Contest teams acknowledged as such: Gabriel Cristea, Dinu Gheorghiu, Constantin Savescu and Romeo Belea and later on Thomas Toma Olteanu, Victor Ivanes, Constantin Dobre and Radu Tanasoiu, architects who asserted themselves through the Architecture Contest, gaining a large number of awards. They have proven their professional value and competence later on also as teachers, mentors of many generations of architects. The contests presented in this exhibition are selected from those published on the pages of the Architecture magazine, accompanied by comments on the topic, selection criteria and proposed solutions. When the authors were able to make material from their personal archives available, we have gladly used them. We present published projects, some completed, others ignored at a later stage (as is the case with the Bucharest 2000 Contest). Also included in the exhibition is a section devoted to the places of worship, the prophets of worship, architectural proposals after 1989, whether or not included in architectural competitions. The opening of the exhibition Romania, 100 years of Architectural Competitions shall take place on Thursday, November 15th, 2018, from 6.00 p.m., in the foyer of the NTB Studio Hall!   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
