The publication brings together a range of different points of view which together paint a comprehensive—albeit not exhaustive— picture of the performing arts in Romania in recent years. Using both words and images, it covers the most important trends in terms of cultural policy and artistic themes, while also providing an account of the ideas that have circulated and continue to circulate in the field, of landmark performances and the venues where they were staged, as well as of the Romanian actors, directors and writers who enjoyed most success among the public and critics.
While thinking about notions of the ‘local’, the ‘regional’ and the ‘authentic’ in a social and economic context, one sees these terms becoming increasingly blurred. What remains when the ‘local’ turns out to be a mere product? How does this constant shift between locations, contexts and cultures influence artists’ work? How do these artists elaborate their ways of communicating their practice, while challenging the status of mobility, instability, being-in-motion? Where are the centre and peripheries and how do they influence working conditions? Is the East still running after the West? And what does ‘the East’ mean, after all?
