Pericles

A man lying in the sand. Washed up by the waves. There’s no knowing where he came from, where he is heading, what he wants or what he is fleeing from. Somewhere, in a distant land, he used to be king. The Prince of Tyre. But now he is only a man who has nothing but a story. This is Pericles’ story. But not only his.

1978

Next performance: 2024-Mar-17 17:00 (2 weeks from now) - Building of the old Faculty of Hydrotehnics - UPT (Aleea Ghirodei nr. 32.)

Theatre performance “1978” directed by Slovenian theatre director Tomi Janežič at Timisoara Hungarian Theatre is about Romania in the 70s, a trans-generational documentary fiction based on actors’ and director’s personal stories. It is a story about communist times, which grows out of a Romanian apartment, a story related to many local and global events that connect the regions of Timisoara and Nova Gorica (Slovenia) - on the border with Italy - cities that were both part of the same country once upon a time: the Austro-Hungarian empire. More then hundred years ago dozens of thousands of Hungarian soldiers fought at Isonzo front.

The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin

The last part of the trilogy, “The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin”, invites spectators to a secret party in an unknown location somewhere in Elisabetin neighbourhood. Four separate groups of spectators will be following key-characters on their way to the party: policeman Edgár (Viki's brother in “The Parallel City: Iosefin”), the party organiser Lela, deaf influencer XO, Beáta and János (from "The Parallel City: Fabric”). A fifth group will be escorted to an unknown location where unusual bouncers await. The party reunites both humans and parallelians and it can be explored like an open world which offers many surprises and revelations connecting the stories we learned so far and uncovering a path to the heart of the Parallel City. Like previous performances, a side quest will also be available online. The spectators are welcomed to explore Elisabetin landmarks and hear stories about people living here who have created parallel worlds.

The Great Onion

There is no space in the Great Onion for liars, bad citizens, unskilled citizens or citizens without valid documents.

Birds

"In Birds by Aristophanes, two men who are exhausted from living in endless wartime, decide to build Cloud-cuckoo-land, the first utopia in art history. 2500 years later, we are still living in an endless war, which only changes its shape and territory, we are tired, defeated and dreaming of a personal utopias. What is next? Is it still possible to create a world where everyone is equal, where there is no war, no fighting? If so, why can't we make it happen?” - Kokan Mladenović, director

The sun's sister and starlight

Under the direction of Attila Balázs, Mónika Tar skillfully evokes one of the most distinctive and culturally significant genres in Hungarian literature with great flair and naturalness.

The Doctor

Robert Icke's play is an adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's "Professor Bernhardi” (1912): Ruth Wolff, doctor and acknowledged researcher, is cast aside from the medical profession due to a decision she made to protect a dying underaged pacient. This case triggers an avalanche of aggressive reactions and biased comments, mirroring rules of political correctness and the woke culture in today's polarized world, a world divided in tribes, "us versus the others”, where morality is defined by circumstances. Social networks dictate how we live, as well as racial, sexual, political or gender identities. Whatever you dare not talk about at work fearing you might be cancelled, it is safe to discuss in theatre: we allow ourselves to confront this world's prejudice and lies.

Nothing

Duration: 1h40'

Despite being banned at first, the novel NOTHING has later become a mandatory read for students. NOTHING tackles the uncomfortable, sensitive and difficult to articulate themes in teenagers' lives. Because we need to talk about certain topics, even when they seem to be nothing important.

Nine

Duration: 1h50'

Can imagination create a reality which is more suitable than the one around us?

What if we transform bits and pieces of our lives into a movie, what would it look like?

The life of an Italian film director, who has seen better days - Guido Contini's imaginary cinematography is nothing more than a musical parade of song and dance, so that his own personal and professional crisis transforms into a work of art. Without realizing that, after staging, the boundaries separating film, fantasy and reality are slowly disappearing.---- Translated EN via surtitles
 

Adrian Sitaru
The Man Who Could Talk Only What He Read

Duration: 1h50'

The characters are sitting around a table, discussing some of the most fundamental questions of human life. Is there such crime that can be morally justified? Can a murderer become a hero if the context of his crime justifies his act? Which one is more valuable, the life of a human being or the life of an animal? Along with these, Sitaru's text reflects on how our language, the words which we learn in early childhood, our daily vocabulary, can change or influence our individual perception of reality, our fantasies and rationality.
"The limits of my language are the limits of my world" - Ludwig Wittgenstein
