Roşia Montană is not just a ‘hot topic’ but also generates a broader discussion about the world in which we live, about the theme of morality in our contemporary society, about the polarization of our society around a certain subject, about the way the mass media chooses to reflect (or not) upon this phenomenon, about poverty, vulnerability and about seeking for a solution that puts an end to such a state of things, about the desire to save and be saved, about the relativity of any kind of truth or any kind of lie, about a present time with fragile links to the past and to the future, about the reality/unreality of situations that we may happen to find ourselves in at a certain moment, about how discussions are constructed in a troublesome world where we affirm one thing and in the next second we can say something else to the contrary and, last but not least, about possibilities, limits, about the theatre’s attempts to relate to a reality that is hard to decipher, precisely because it is happening right here and right now. Right before our very eyes.
