The Hungarian Theatre of Cluj will present (In)visible, its newest premiere directed by Leta Popescu on Tuesday, February 5, at 8 pm. The production is the staging of one of the selected projects from the 2017 competition for young directors organized by our theatre, with several additional winning projects being staged this season.
Within the performance of (In)visible, the images associated with a collage of texts written by Romanian and Hungarian contemporary authors form a continuous series, not unlike a visual installation. It is up to the viewer to curiously follow this process of reflection about himself, the individual, living in the world, as well as the world that surrounds him.
According to director Leta Popescu, the topic of the production is vulnerability, in an age when it seems the only certainty is uncertainty – not only in the world, generally speaking, but also for the individual as such. The performance goes through the seven stages of fragility (Planet - Earth - Country - City - Family - Couple - Individual), thereby becoming a kind of journey in the world of feelings, starting from loneliness, and ending with solitude.
Set designer Mihai Păcurar stated the following concerning the rehearsal process: “We attempted to build seven different spaces what can coexist simultaneously on stage. It was a challenge for me to create a collage in which the seven elements coexist side by side and at the same time do not cancel each other out. The space can be compared to an artistic collage-installation that helps viewers garner and interpret various meanings.”
Mihai Păcurar created the set design, video installations and animations of the production, while Andrei Dósa served as a translator and dramaturgical assistant; stage movement: Ferenc Sinkó, composer: Magor Bocsárdi.
Next performances: Wednesday, February 6; Monday, February 11, and Wednesday, February 20, all with a 8 pm curtain time.
