The show will be performed on 28 October, 19:30 at hall Stere Popescu at CNDB.

This includes a series of performances meant to show the contact between Roma ethnics and Jewish ethnics in the majority of Romanians. Another side of the project approaches a different perspective of Romania’s society related to the gay community and how it is viewed and accepted here.

Through of series of different interdisciplinary methods which allow the attendants and those who are working on the project to see how people react to differences, a sort of introspection seen from the outside, the project aims to raise awareness on different contemporary social issues Romania faces nowadays.

The extremely ambitious project will feature a live performance in which attendants are performers themselves as they are being observed, their emotions are being stirred and the result is the reflection of society’s views on the matters. The whole event will feature live music as well as a series of techniques specific to documentaries, especially documentary theater. One of the performers and a spectator will be EEG monitored as part of the whole ensemble to see whether the cultural differences provoke fear and aggression or they generate curiosity and intercultural changes. The premise of the show, and what its authors are aiming towards lies in the fact that differences and seeing differences is an adaptive mechanism in human beings but beyond that, adapting to the differences and cultural changes around you generates evolution.

inter@FATA is a creative experience both for the artists and the spectators and along with composer Catalin Cretu and choreographic support by Ana Costea it promises to not be just a cultural experience but also a personal experience that will allow for introspection and perhaps even a change of attitude where needed.

This exhibition is an interesting idea if you are looking for an educational yet fun activity for your kids’ summer vacation. Nevertheless, the exhibition is also appealing to adults willing to know more about the field of electricity and its evolution on the Romanian territory.

Organized in four sections, the exhibition allows visitors to discover the role that light holds in our everyday life, on its different aspects (religious, professional, and even festive). It’s a cultural event inviting to a deeper reflection on the symbolic value of this physical phenomenon, and on the social impact of artificial lighting.

The whole idea behind this exhibition is to illustrate the evolution of lighting on five continents through a selection of photographs and documents, dating from ancient times until the advent of electricity. You can admire there more than three hundred exhibits, including lamps, lanterns and chandeliers, all with an educative purpose, but keeping an eye on the aesthetic side as well as on the playful one.
