This year's GATES OPEN NIGHT was one of the most beautiful editions yet! We would like to thank you all for accepting our invitation! The spectators that took part in the workshops learned tango and step, discovered and experienced the secrets of clowns, painted ornaments, designed masks and drew illustrations. Together, we enjoyed the film THE FILM BOOTH, based on interviews with the participants in this spring's edition of GATES OPEN DAY (the film is available here as of today), and then, spectators had the opportunity to address questions to our actors, Adriana Băilescu, Sânziana Tarța, Adrian Cucu, Miron Maxim. THE MUSIC OF FILMS filled both the auditorium and the main stage of the theatre: approximately 40 young instrumentalists held an emotional and energetic symphonic concert, performing the soundtracks of famous films, conducted by Dalma Kovacs. Music continued on our stage, with a concert held by Ada Milea, accompanied by our colleagues, the actors Anca Hanu, Sânziana Tarța, Cristian Rigman and Miron Maxim. The event ended with a stand-up comedy performance by Dragoș Pop. Doamna T Café, joining us again this year, was the host of a book launch, the fictional novel The Diary of My First Death by Ioana Duda (Herg Benet Publishing House, Bucharest), a book presented by Dragoș Filioreanu and Iulia Iacob.
