"Great names: Shakespeare, Meyerhold; a great play: Richard III; a great topic: The evil that spreads its still living tentacles from under the ruins of history to remind us that we are still not safe from this hidden malady. This is why the young director Răzvan Mureșan shakes the audiences once more, by confronting them directly, in a willingly uncomfortable proximity, with characters selected by Matei Vișniec from a world we all wish had been long forgotten. Why would we return today, once more, to the darkness of Stalinist censorship, to that climate of fear,a animal instincts, cruelty and meticulously programmed physical and psychical torture? Maybe because we still live in a world where these things are still not out in the open, and the "honest and pure direct evil" as Meyerhold explains to Richard, is "something the humanity has long lost": "Today, evil is covered in speeches about a better world. Today, the evil doesn't only want to fool the crowds, it wants to be worshiped by them. Today's evil [...] wants to live inside people's heads and dominate them from within." All is left, is the humanity, the inner freedom, the power of art to say NO." (Ștefana Pop-Curșeu)
