An emancipating revolution of the “Roma Armee”

On 26th of June 2019, the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) brings at the National Theatre I.L Caragiale from Bucharest the Roma Armee a play produced by the famous Maxim Gorki Theatre from Berlin, which was  awarded with the Europe Prize for Theater (2017) and enjoys unanimous critical appreciation.

Directed by Yael Ronen, considered one of the most exciting personalities of contemporary theater and based on the original idea of Sandra and Simonida SelimovićRoma Armee is a powerful story in which black humor combined with personal experiences, historical contaminations and contemporary incidents, outlines a vision of a safe European home - Gypsyland Europe.

At a time when neo-fascism threatens Europe, a group of actors initiates a Roma army for the purpose of self-defense. The actors are Romnija, Roma and Roma travellers from Austria, Serbia, Germany, Kosovo, Romania, England and Sweden. They are also Israeli-German-Turkish-Berlin Gadjé – that means that the Roma Army is supra-national, diverse, feminist, queer. By exposing the past and present injustices the Roma throughout Europe have endured, the Roma Army gives way to the process of self-reflection and self-emancipation - initiating a revolution to envisage a peaceful, inclusive and respectful future for all Europeans. With the stage design and costumes by famous Roma artists Delaine and Damian Le Bas, the “Roma Armee” represents an inspiring example of a modern Roma contemporary production of highest artistic quality.
