The production “Electra”, directed by Mihai Maniutiu at the “Radu Stanca” National Theatre in Sibiu, will be performed in Turkey, in the 13th edition of the Turkish Theatres’ Sabanci International Theatre Festival, taking place between March 27 and April 30 in Adana, in Central-Southern Turkey, a 30 kilometres’ distance from the Mediterranean. The Sibiu theatre’s troupe will play alongside the Iza Ensemble from Maramures two performances, scheduled for today, April 4, and tomorrow, April 5, starting 8 pm. Both performances will take place at the Adana State Theatre and will be subtitled in English and Turkish. The tour was supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute in Istanbul. “Maramures is a miraculous place and, on one of my visits there, I heard the voices of ancient Greece, the voices of Greek tragedy… Rehearsals confirmed my intuition that the lines of Greek ancient tragedy are in perfect consonance with traditional folk music from Maramures… My show is, in fact, an essay in which I staged a dialogue between the two worlds (…),” Mihai Maniutiu stated, quoted in a press release by the Sibiu Theatre. According to theatre critics, Maniutiu’s “Electra” depicts a ghetto of contemporary society, which is governed by ancestral mechanisms, recreated by Mainutiu in a crystal-clear mirror image, in which the instruments and singers of the Iza Ensemble find their reflection.
“State Theatres’ Sabanci International Theatre Festival” is a private initiative of a major Turkish patron of the arts, Sakip Sabanci. Founded in 1998, the festival manages to draw over 20,000 spectators every year, featuring productions from 42 countries.
