The ensemble cast portraying the village’s Jewish men and women will also feature Zsolt Gedő, one of the newest members of our company, as well as guest artist Edina Fodor.

The theatrical-film performance of POOL (no water) will also be available in October at www.eventim.ro. The online performance is a joint project of Radu Nica, Andu Dumitrescu and Vlaicu Golcea. The drama is a cynical satire of the art world and focuses on its (moral) mediocrity, while also being a reflection of today’s society where even the image of your own body can become the a product.
Tickets for the October performances can be purchased at the theatre’s ticket office (on weekdays between 10 am and 2 pm) and online at www.biletmaster.ro.
