A glimpse into the world of childhood memories 06 April 2024
At the Atelier Hall of the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre in Bucharest, starting April 6, 2024, you can enjoy a new performance, Childhood Memories – one man show performed by actor Vitalie Bichir as part of the program. Far from being a simple dramatization after Ion Creanga, the recital recital conceived and directed by Vitalie Bichir, proposes to spectators of all ages, a nostalgic foray into the world evoked by the great storyteller, adding to it some ingredients related to the personal biography of the actor, also from Moldavia. The ingenious scenario combines, for the first time, excerpts from the well-known Childhood Memories with pages from the 1883 textbook The Schoolmaster of Children (a reading book including anatomy lessons for the primary grades), authored and co-authored by Ion Creanga. The happy happenings of childhood, narrated with talent and a special emotional involvement by the actor, who transforms himself, one by one, into each of the characters played, receive an ironic counterpoint by juxtaposition with didactic explanations (supported by projections). These explanations are extracted from amusing anatomy lessons formulated in the sweet Moldovan language, in which the mysteries of the functioning of the human body are described in an understandable way, in the spirit of the time. A relevant moment for the construction of this one-man-show can be found, for example, at the intersection of the well-known story of Irinuca's goats, a source of scabies for the young apprentice who came from Humulesti, and the description of this arachnid - taken from the textbook of the time, in the words of the time. The show awakens in each of us, the adult spectators, the longing for our parents and our native places, through this incursion, full of tenderness and emotion, into the innocent world of childhood. And for young students who may have difficulties reading the "compulsory" reading of Childhood Memories, the performance at the Atelier Hall of the National Theatre offers another "key" to reading, opening the door to the universe evoked with such talent by Nica of Stefan al Petrei from Humulesti...., alias Ion Creanga! Actor Vitalie Bichir celebrates, on the occasion of this recital, 30 years since graduating from acting school! The first performances of "Childhood Memories" will take place on April 6 (premiere) and April 7, 2024, at 7pm, and the next performance is scheduled for May 25, 2024. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at the NTB Box Office and online at   Translated by Andreea Codrea-Boeriu
