The first edition of the Urban Theatre Festival will take place by the end of each week, during July 3 – 26, in the yard of the villa located on 53 Carol Street, organized by the InDArt Theatre.
“The Urban Theatre Festival provides a wide offer for people seeking relaxation and coolness in the Saturday and Sunday nights of July: open air performances – including several ones in the InDArt repertoire, dynamic shows with the improvisation company The Small Group, premieres and concertsm painting exhibitions, stage costumes and photographs by young artists”, the organizers announced, as quoted by Agerpres.
The first edition of the event will present the public two theatre premieres: the performances: “Mr. Minister’s Coffee” featuring actors Cristi Martin, Alexandra Timofte and Eliza Georgescu, and “RED” – featuring actors Catalin Stelian and Alin Brancu.
All shows included in the festival start at 9 pm and will be performed in the open-air venue. After each show, viewers are invited to acoustic concerts, “due to take place late after midnight”.
Before each show, starting at 7 pm, Bucharesters are invited to visit the exhibitions as well. One of them is an exhibition of costumes created by set and costume designer Antoaneta Tica.
Director Bogdan Gagu, the founder of the InDArt Independent Theatre, says about his initiative “theatre under the moon light” that it aims, first of all, the revitalization of the community, especially at a time when the offer considerably decreases, providing a venue for interaction, communication and expression by means of art.
“Theatre under the moonlight” appeared from a wish by young people to consolidate contemporary culture and the way it is approached and perceived, at a time cultural and artistic regeneration encounter difficult situations”, Bogdan Gagu declared, as quoted in the press release.
