IIC 2016 - IN SEARCH OF THE AUTHOR

 

The sixth edition of the International Meetings in Cluj, entitled In search of the author, took place from the 3rd to the 9th of October 2016. It is an event through which Cluj-Napoca National Theatre wanted to create a meeting between successful contemporary authors (Robert Cohen, Rodrigo García and Matei Vișniec), the actors performing in their plays and the spectators interested in today's social and artistic problems.
 

At the same time, 2016 marked 100 years since the birth of the Dada movement, which radically transformed the traditional aesthetic norms up to this day. As a result, the event desired to become a celebration of the creativity of the theatre spirit of avant-garde authors, through a series of collective works presented at Cluj-Napoca National Theatre.
 

About this year's event, Mihai Măniuţiu, the manager of Cluj-Napoca National Theatre, said the following: "The sixth edition of the INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS IN CLUJ, under the sign of the SEARCH FOR THE AUTHOR - playwright or director - reflects, we believe, the spirit by which the troupe of the Cluj-Napoca National Theatre is governed: dedicated, on the one hand, to  a perpetual, restless, search for the theatrical truth and, on the other, never hesitating to take difficult chances, with difficult texts and creators, often facing risks and even confronting dangers - attempts which, at the same time, are the only ones capable to lead to always higher steps of artistic excellence." 


For 7 days, the event presented an impressive number of productions, both from Cluj-Napoca National Theatre and invited, and hosted book launches, exhibits and round tables. At the same time, during this event, the third edition of the Cluj-Napoca National Theatre Awards Gala, when the best productions and performances from the previous season are rewarded.
