Produced by the Hungarian Theatre in Cluj
A disintegrated, confused family, lacking the presence of a mother, where each person struggles with their own prejudices and is right in their own way. It is a miniature image of the world we live in, of our blindness, and inevitable ignorance, due to the way we perceive things differently and in a deformed way, may we be ordinary people, or philosophers. We go through life wearing invisible goggles, blinkers or colored glasses, we only see what we want and it becomes convenient for us to only notice what we have learnt to see. We are turning around and around, in a circle, repetitively, and live parallel realities in our minds. Might we perchance have the opportunity to rise above? Perhaps unconditional love is the missing piece, as perhaps the lack of the mother is also very present within this family.
The performance will be presented during the International Meetings in Cluj, in the studio of the Hungarian Theatre in Cluj, on October 14, 2018, at 5 pm.

Placing everything in the realm of possibility and miracle, the play talks about a pyramid scheme that took Romania by storm in the dawn of its democracy, in the early ‘90s. Gradually, the social and political structure that permitted this circuit to reach such great proportions becomes evident.
„The Miracle of Cluj" is a documentary theater show that builds a bigger picture of the social and political context in Romania which facilitated the spreading of pyramid schemes. The show is part of „Democracy exercices. Investigation of the recent history" project, implemented by Reactor de creație și experiment.
The performance will be presented during the International Meetings in Cluj, at REACTOR, on October 12, 2018, at 4 pm.
