Teatrul Național Cluj-Napoca deschide sezonul teatral cu premiera spectacolului Țiganiada după Ion Budai-Deleanu, pe un scenariu de Cătălin Ștefănescu, în regia lui Alexandru Dabija, premieră care va avea loc duminică, 23 septembrie 2018, de la ora 19:00. Colaborarea regizorului cu Naționalul clujean, din 1979 și până acum, este una benefică. Alexandru Dabija a montat nouă spectacole, Țiganiada fiind al zecelea titlu, prilej cu care i-am adresat câteva întrebări.


Pentru început, inserăm un fragment dintr-un portret al regizorului făcut de criticul Doina Modola: „Alexandru Dabija este o prezenţă atât de năstruşnică şi de năbădăioasă, încât captivează, fascinează, deblochează, dezinhibă, eliberează. În procesul montării, se estompează în operă, lăsând cu generozitate şi gratitudine actorului performanţa. Demonstraţia sa rămâne întotdeauna implicită, mediată, dedicată.


Şi totuşi, cu aceeaşi discreţie, neaşteptată la un personaj atât de special, Alexandru Dabija este un poet al imaginii, pe care o compune, o apropie, o depărtează, o ecranează, o efasează, îi asigură unitate, stil, semnificaţie. Este un rapsod îndrăgostit şi statornic al artei pe care o slujeşte, cu patimă ascunsă, cu ironie, cu spirit ludic, cu bucurie. Pentru el, teatrul e o primă şi veşnic tânără iubire, în care mângâie tandru anii, deceniile, trecerea vremii, urmele vremii, cu amintirea neştearsă a emoţiei adevărate, sincere, totale, de la primele întâlniri. Întâlniri în care şi astăzi caută şi regăseşte fiorul descoperirii dragostei dintâi.“

MASTER MANOLE in new clothes

We have a new premiere in the Great Hall of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca: Master Manole by Lucian Blaga. After the 1930 performance under Ștefan Braborescu's stage direction and Alexa Visarion's 1973 production, we are looking forward to welcoming you to another performance based on Blaga's text. The premiere takes place Saturday, 9 June 2018, from 7.00 p.m. To introduce us into the atmosphere, we spoke with the director of the performance, Andrei Măjeri, and the costume designer, Lucian Broscățean.  


Eugenia Sarvari
: Andrei Măjeri, you graduated the Faculty of Theatre and Television of the "Babeș-Bloyai" University of Cluj, in 2014. The first performance you directed at the Cluj National was Pandora's Box by Katalin Thuróczy. You also directed here two texts by Rodrigo García, Agamemnon and Death and Reincarnation in a Cowboy in 2015 and 2016. How did you come upon Master Manole in 2018? 

 

Andrei Măjeri: It's for the first time that a text is suggested to me. I was always the one to choose the plays I was going to direct. Master Manole was suggested by Mr. Mihai Măniuțiu, and I gave a lot of thought to this idea, my first instinct being to reject it. I felt I couldn't say anything new about this text. I was wrong. I came back to it and, at the same time, I dug deeper into Blaga's universe with other dramatic, philosophical, but especially poetic texts. I realized it's a legit text, worth revisiting. For actors, it's a great chance to get extraordinary parts. I later thanked Mr. Măniuțiu for having challenged me in this way. 



The "Lucian Blaga" National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca invites you at the premiere of the performance MASTER MANOLE by Lucian Blaga, which takes place in the Great Hall, Saturday, 9 June, from 7.00 p.m., directed by Andrei Măjeri.

 

The play Master Manole was written between 1 May and 15 September 1926, and printed in 1927 at Dacia Traiană Publishing House from Sibiu. Its absolute premiere was on 6 April 1929 at the National Theatre of Bucharest, under Soare Z. Soare's stage direction, with the role of Manole played by A. Pop Marțian, and of Mira by Aura Buzescu. On 11 February 1930, the play premiered at the National Theatre of Cluj, directed by Ștefan Braborescu, with Manole played by Ion Tâlvan, and Mira by V. Cronwald. Lucian Blaga elaborated upon the South-European largely-spread myth of Master Manole, in which the stronger, larger-than-life love of Manole for Mira combines with his urge to create a time-transcending work. Manole is a Lucifer-like character striving to reach immortality through his own creation.
