Welcoming young theatre creators, NTB in partnership with UNATC presents a series of shows created by students.

„Improvisation is a play where I attempt to imitate Moliere, being, at the same time, a criticism of some critics. I reproach to critics dogmatism, not understanding art, their refusal to understand theatre. The critics I enact in this play are militant critics. If the harm people inflict upon each other changes its appearance, its profound nature remains the same. I have written to ask myself about this issue, about this mystery.” Eugène Ionesco

“Far from being a pretentious discussion on philosophy and theatre, it is a still topical parable about society who does not want you different, but brainwashed, wants you to think and live according to its dictates. And most of the times, society wins. This is the nightmare of the world we live in and this has also been the nightmare of Eugene Ionesco. The show wants to be a sign of alarm, pulled for us all (regardless whether we are artists or corporatists), who must ask ourselves whether we ever stopped telling our truth and why we have started preaching the one of others.” Andreea Ciocirlan (director)
