The National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca is looking forward to welcoming you at the premiere of OLD CLOWN WANTED by Matei Vișniec, which will take place in the "Euphorion“ Studio, Friday, 20 April, from 7.00 p.m. Direction and scenography are signed by Sorin Misirianțu, who also plays one of the three clown parts, beside Ovidiu Crișan and Ioan Isaiu. The three characters, Niccolo, Filippo and Peppino, created with delicacy and humour by our beloved playwright Matei Vișniec, trigger the most diverse and deep feelings within spectators. Difficult stage parts, these roles are challenging for any actor who has reached maturity. In order to prepare spectators for entering the world of the three characters, we addressed some questions both to directors, and to the other two "professional clowns“.
Today is the World Theatre Day, a day of celebrating not only the birth of theatre, which is in fact lost in immemorial times, but rather the perpetual rebirth of this art that, through its own existence, is meant to celebrate the human being: the eternal Man, always identical to himself, but also the Man in his permanent historical mobility; man as an indivisible whole, but also the halved, multiple, multiform man; the singular man, whose complex identity takes an unrepeatable shape, but also the histrionic man, who plays with identities, in order to know them and himself better. The theatre art celebrates the man who reflects upon the world and reflects upon himself through the world.
Like every year, the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca invites you to spend the World Theatre Day at the Gates Open Day, which reached its ninth edition.
