Rehearsals have started for OST (Organic Sound Twist) - a performance conceived and realized by Andrea Gavriliu -, which will premiere in the "Euphorion" Studio, Thursday October 5, 2017, within the International Meetings in Cluj. On this occasion, we asked her some questions.
Eugenia Sarvari - From what I can remember, it all started with acting. I'm thinking of your participation in Andrei Șerban's Theatre Workshop from Cluj, in 2005. You were then 1st year student in acting. How did dance come up in this equation?
Andrea Gavriliu - It didn't come up out of nothing. I attended some ballet classes in childhood. That was the basis. Since then already I have been dance-struck. So I suffered a lot when I had to call it off.

Before the start of a new season in theatres all around the country, theatre refreshes itself on the Black Sea shore, between the Danube Delta and Costinești. Two events centered on performance art and theatre pedagogy are taking place at the beginning of this autumn, engaging members of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca: Theatre Meetings in Sulina (August 31-September 4) and The Young Actors Gala of Costinești (September 4-7 ).
We are preparing for a little theatre marathon in sunny Portugal!
