The Island after Gellu Naum, Ada Milea's much-awarded concert-performance, produced with the company of the National Theatre from Cluj, turns six years from its premiere at the beginning of the next season. As fresh and full of life as it was from the start, the production will bring viewers out in the open, to lead them in Robinson and Friday's world depicted by Naum, along with Coco the billy goat and the Bedouin natives of an island lost in a sea of loneliness. But how could you still feel alone next to a much-enamored Mermaid and a wooden-legged Pirate, when besieged by Randolph and by Selkirke Grandmas, when Mary finds you and the frightening Mabolo, the cannibal king, recognizes you?
For one evening, on the occasion of "Cluj Days", The Unirii Square will turn into that musical and colorful Island, where we can escape daily monotony and wake up to life. Here is how the actors feel the moment of the performance:
The newest actor from the company of the National Theatre from Cluj, Mihai-Florian Nițu graduated the National University of Theatre and Film from Bucharest in 2013, in Professor Adrian Titieni's class.

Mihaela Panainte are o solidă formație muzicală. La Liceul „Dinu Lippati”“ din București a studiat canto clasic timp în care, spune regizoarea, „mă trezeam în fiecare zi la patru dimineaţa ca să studiez la pian, repetam solfegii câteva ore pe zi, îmi exersam vocea pe fiecare sunet. Uneori, stăteam săptămâni întregi pe un singur sunet“. Este absolventă a secției de canto și regie de operă a Conservatorului „Gheorghe Dima“ din Cluj. În 2006 montează opera Vocea Umană de Francis Poulenc la Casa Tranzit din Cluj, iar în 2007, ca lucrare de diplomă, opera Cavalleria Rusticana de Pietro Mascagni la Opera Maghiară de Stat. Primul text pe care l-a abordat a fost Delir în doi, în trei... în câţi vreţi de Eugène Ionesco, în 2007, în teatrul ei independent Uthopia Theater de la Fabrica de Pensule din Cluj, spațiu în care regizoarea și-a desfășurat activitatea timp de cinci ani. Au urmat, tot de Ionesco, Scaunele, în 2010, Iona de Marin Sorescu, la Salina Turda în 2013, performance-ul lui Marian Ilea și Mircea Bochiș, Medio Monte la Colonia de Pictură de la Baia Mare și Noul locatar de Ionesco la Teatrul Municipal Baia Mare, în 2014, Cartea bătrânilor după poemul lui Domokos Szilágyi, în 2016, la Teatrul Maghiar de Stat din Cluj.
Iat-o acum, pentru prima oară la Naționalul clujean, în postura de a descifra un text prin excelență încriptat, Procesul de Franz Kafka, pretext pentru a-i pune câteva întrebări despre lucrul la acest spectacol și nu numai.
