Alinei Nelega’s monodrama presents episodes from the life of Amalia. She had passed through Communism in an aboulic state, from its beginning until its maximum darkness and had gotten to a new era of freedom, which proves to be equally confusing to her. The little communist girls - happy to be away from the German governess, the piano lessons, the French hours - grows confused by the losses in her life. But the traumas don’t transform her into a self pitiful person. Instead, the character remains fantastically courageous and charmingly candid. Alina Nelega’s play does not reject the past, with its obvious defects, but sets the past under the careful analysis of the present, through a demonstration of detheatralisation of the theatre. 

 

This kind of production is "more direct, it is closer to the hiperreality which is more necessary in the theatre, film, visual arts and literature. It is a type of image which is build on a word, in a direct relationship with it, less oblique, less descriptive, less dynamic", says the author in an interview.
