“Buy Nothing Day” is a fresh show which feels the young generation’s pulse in a brave and witting manner. Loaded with vital messages from the present-day social, political and economical spheres, “Buy Nothing Day” tells us about the change that emerges from every individual. The play makes a call to humor (without drifting into sarcasm), activism (with no suggestion of extremism) and to contemporary, scintillating artistic solutions in terms of sound, set and design.

Petra (Ilinca Harnut) and Andrei (Rolando Matsangos) want to draw attention over consumerism and the exploitation of Third Word workers. Kati (Cristina Gavrus) and Irina (Olivia Alexandra Nita) want to become stars by singing at a “Save the Planet” event. Toma (Andrei Morariu) and Petru (Emil Mandanac) want to protest to improve the living conditions from the nursing home they work at. Ana (Simona Cuciurianu) wants to be more than just a clothes shop assistant. Their paths meet at the mall. This visit will change their lives.

Kim Atle Hansen is a Norwegian play writer, actor and activist, author of several plays about problems of today’s society. He works at Norske Theater, and “Buy Nothing Day” is his most known play, set so far in the UK, Brazil, Italy, The USA and Russia. “This text is destined rather to a performative convention than a type of emotionally motivated game”
