The National Village Museum organizes the “St. Mary Fair”

The “Dimitrie Gusti” National Village Museum organizes during September 5 – 6, the St. Mary Fair, an event dedicated to the Christian celebration of the birth of Virgin Mary, the Mother of Our Lord.
Known by the people as “the Little Holiday of St. Mary” and devotedly celebrated by Romanians everywhere, the holiday marches the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. Now, the sparrows are leaving, the soil is closing for reptiles and insects, certain healing plants and fruits are picked, people keep sowing wheat, barley and rye, start picking grapes, and organize plenty of fairs and markets to sell the products of the closing season.
At the Village Museum, on the Little Holiday of St. Mary, visitors are invited to do their shopping from craftsmen who have gathered from all regions of Romania, offering folklore art objects, traditional food products and bio products, and also to attend free interactive creation workshops, in the limit of ten students per workshop: icon painting on glass, coordinated by Ileana Ometita and folklore jewels, coordinated by Raluca Pascaru.
Also, on Saturday, September 5, at 12.00, Bancu Barn, there will be the opening of the photography reproductions exhibition based on interwar glass negatives, entitled “80 years ago”, Iulian Sima collection. The exhibition presents people, moments, places that cannot be identified with one region or one community, but with the spirit of a Romania that existed 80 years ago.
The multimedia performance “The Time” offers the viewers a journey in the past, a redescovery of the atmosphere of interwar Bucharest with its charming and delightful music and balls, all in the scenery of the Sutu Palace in Bucharest, on Saturday, September 19, at 7 pm.
The concept of the show is based on a historical fiction story written by Adrian Majuru, with a narrative thread that carries viewers in a story veiled by mystery and anticipation.
The performing artists are Olga Podobinschi – piano, Mihaela Pletea – vocals, Maria Chifu – vocals and fagot, Cristina Raducan – flute, Alexandra Poenaru – dance, Lucian Martin – dance, Radu Valcu – guitar, Mihai Cucu – concept and visuals.
