Contemporary projection show Play (The Day) this Saturday in Bucharest

This Saturday at 4.30 p.m., the Comedy Theater in Bucharest (New Hall) is organizing the second edition of the contemporary projection show Play (The Day).
Play is a festival born out of the desire to offer theater lovers the opportunity to get up to speed with what is happening on the global theater scene. The objective of the event is to bring forth recent contemporary shows produced by some of the most acclaimed international creators of the moment and present them as authentically as if they were being played live.
Enthusiasts will have a chance to watch 2 (Two), a show put together by Greek director Dimitris Papaioannou known for his work for the opening ceremony at the 2004 Olympic Games in Greece. The projection 2 (Two) is a dissection of the male body, a play consisting of 22 male artists whose performance defies the boundaries between theater and dance.
“Those in Romania who wish to experience internationally produced theater shows usually go to Sibiu, Cluj, or Timisoara. Despite its desire to be perceived as a European capital, Bucharest does not have access to the newest trends in worldwide theater and very few shows have been played here in the last several years. Play, a contemporary projection show festival organized for the second time by Master’s students at the Excellence in Image Studies Center, which I am currently coordinating, intends to partially make up for this situation by projecting a series of shows for the first time in Romania and Bucharest produced by world-renowned creators,” Cristina Modreanu, theater critic and University Lector at the Excellence in Image Studies Center (CESI), stated.
