History Of Romanian Theatre From Communism To Capitalism (eBook)
Children Of A Restless Time
de Cristina Modreanu
Sobre o livro
A History of Romanian Theatre from Communism to Capitalism analyses the last three decades of Romanian theatre and connects it to the international stage. Cristina Modreanu questions the relationship between artists and power, both before 1989, behind the Iron Curtain, and in the current global political context, with nationalism manifesting itself in Eastern Europe, as seen in the critical work of Romanian theatre makers. This study covers the complex cases of theatre makers such as Lucian Pintilie, Liviu Ciulei and Andrei E erban, who built their international careers in exile, and the most innovative Romanian artists of today, such as Silviu PurcA rete, Mihai MA niuA iu, Gianina CA rbunariu, Radu Afrim, and Bogdan Georgescu, who reached the status of transglobal artists.Filling a considerable gap in Romanian theatre discourse, this book will be of a great interest to students and scholars of contemporary theatre and history.
