Researching and Theatrical Creation Center “Ion Sava” is that place where theatre can be a game, at large, in absence of the institutional pressure, of the dictatorship of deadlines and the final product obligations named spectacle. More than everything, it expects to be an open space for ideas and for attempts, first of all for the creative process, even if it is about the professional development or about the exploration of new territories of scenic art.

It came into existence by means of a government issue in 2005 and functioning since 2006, Researching and Theatrical Creation Center “Ion Sava” is on the one hand an informal “school” of perfectioning artists and technicians who work on the Romanian stage, and on the other hand an open platform for theatrical and interdisciplinary experiment and investigation.

The workshops which evolve inside the Center attend to cover a large spectre of theatrical areas, from dramaturgy to scenography and from neo-avant-garde to recovering the lost memory of the Romanian stage. The center organizes master class handled by distinguished professionists, Romanians and foreigners, and it offers creation space for artists in searching for new dramaturgy or performative language, in the guise of practice, lectures and meetings.

The projects of the Centre are coordinated by Cristiana Gavrilă.
