“The Gronholm Method” by Catalan playwright Jordi Galceran, directed by Theodor Cristian Popescu, will be staged this November in Belgium, Austria and Spain, Mediafax quoted a press release as reading.
Notarra’s actors will give performances on November 23 at the Pygmalion Theatre in Vienna, on November 25 at the Bozar Center in Brussels and on November 27 at the Lliure Theater in Barcelona.
This series of performances is part of the project titled “Theatre as identity – the tours of the Notarra Theatre” devoted to the Romanian citizens living abroad. The project has benefited from the financial and logistic help of the Romanian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Policies for the Relation with Romanians from Everywhere, and of European Artists Management, a cultural association in Brussels.
“We chose «The Method» for this tour because it has been praised both by experts and audiences, it was a great success at various Romanian festivals and we are convinced that the Romanians from abroad will also give a positive feedback,” said Notarra’s director and theatre critic Marinela Tepus.
World-famous Swedish company holds interviews in order to recruit a top executive. The position entails a large amount of responsibility, but the working conditions and the wage are very attractive. The four applicants selected for the interview make their appearance one by one. It soon becomes clear the tests are dirty mind games. Their doubts start when they realize none of them is the company’s representative. Time seems to pass very quickly, and nobody provides them with information about the recruiting process. On top of that, it seems they are not allowed to leave the building. Their guess is someone is analyzing their behaviour in order to decide who gets the job. Each applicant has to prove his abilities. The tests reveal their wish to help or the tendency to sabotage the other candidates. As the applicants are discarded, the race for the position becomes more tense and sinister. In the end only one of them will get the desired position. Thus, the four characters show their humanity, empathy, insensibility or cynicism, in other works they reveal their true face.
