Romanian play at the Fringe International Theatre Festival in Israel

Israeli producers have decided to stage the play “Stop the Tempo” by Gianina Carbunariu at the 2014 edition of the Fringe International Theatre Festival in Acco, which will take place October 11 to 14, following the 2011 project “Romanian Theatre Today. A Week of Study and Experiment at the University of Tel Aviv.”
The Fringe International Theatre Festival takes place every year, for four days, in the city of Acco, during the holiday of Succot and features original Israeli productions.
During the festival, there will be ten performances of the play, in Hebrew, at Acco Jam Moadon. The Israeli production of the Romanian play enjoys a cast made ?up exclusively of young Israeli actors, with the author having adapted the original text for the Israeli public.
Opened in 1980 and considered “the greatest theatrical event of the year in Israel” (according to the daily Jerusalem Post) – with some 250,000 spectators per edition, the festival includes a competition for original plays (Israeli productions only) which are premiered at the Festival, performances by local and foreign theatres invited, street theatre and outdoor performances and workshops.
The countries invited to this year’s edition of the Festival are Germany – with the support of the Goethe Institute – and Romania – with the support of the ICR Tel Aviv. The Festival is organized by the Ministry of Culture and Sport in Israel, the Israeli National Lottery and Acco City Hall.
