Two individuals rent an apartment in a poor neighborhood and decide to refurbish it. Beneath the linoleum covered floor they find a dead body that they want to get rid of, but the landlord appears and discovers that the victim is the...brother of the two individuals. In order to get rid of the body a delirious odyssey begins. Among other plans, they decide to take it to the airport, drag it on the tarmac and stage the unknown person's death: "We must go and see where it is the least dangerous to drag him through the airport...choose a flight and throw him under it...we must check the flight schedule". At the airport they meet a Boy who tells them about the famous Russian pianist Anton Rubinstein and how close he was, because of a border control error, to being deported to Siberia. But the dead body begins to move and then the worlds mix together as the dead body tells them: "I suggest you quietly go over what has happened to you today (...)?! And how come you can hear and see me, the dead guy - don't you realize? That's because you too are..."

Call it art! discusses in a theatrical manner one of the greatest contemporary questions: what is art today? or better yet, when is what we are told is art actually Art? The production is based on interactions with the audience who are invited to express their view on one of the six contemporary art pieces exposed above some tanks containing yellow, purple, blue, orange, green and red liquids. Although the order they appear on stage may be random, the lectures on contemporary art (where Marcel Duchamp or Damien Hirst have honorary positions), the performance moments, the TV shows against "art", the interviews with artists, all contribute in a funny and intelligent manner to seeking an answer beyond the fanaticism of the for or against extremes. And the spectator... must choose a side.
Due to the high demand of tickets for the 17 April 2016 performance "Caution, Angels Falling!", a one-woman show with Elena Ivanca, Cluj-Napoca National Theatre has decided to supplement the number of seats. As a result, 50 more spectators will be able to enjoy the performance! We would like to draw your attention to the fact that this performance will take place in the "Euphorion" Studio instead of the "ArtClub" Studio.
Tickets already purchased are valid.
Tickets can be purchased at the Theatre's Ticket Agency in Ștefan cel Mare Square no. 14, or online at biletmaster.ro
