ANUNȚ CONCURS

Teatrul Național “Lucian Blaga” din Cluj-Napoca, organizează la sediul din Pța Ștefan cel Mare Nr. 2-4, concurs de recrutare pentru ocuparea pe perioadă determinată a funcției contractuale vacante de Șef secție.

 

Pentru a ocupa un post contractual vacant sau temporar vacant, candidații trebuie să îndeplinească următoarele condiții generale, conform art. 3 al Regulamentului-cadru aprobat prin Hotărârea Guvernului nr. 286 din 23 martie 2011, cu modificările și completările ulterioare:



The new season of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca opens with the premiere of the performance The Gypsies' Camp after Ion Budai-Deleanu, on a script written by Cătălin Ștefănescu, and directed by Alexandru Dabija. The premiere takes place Sunday, September 23 2018, from 7.00 p.m. The director's collaboration with the Cluj National dates back from 1979, and has been utterly fruitful. Alexandru Dabija directed nine performances, with The Gypsies' Camp its tenth. We used this occasion to address him a few questions.


Let us start by quoting a fragment from critic Doina Modola's portrait of the director: „Alexandru Dabija has such a whimsical and feisty presence, that his attitude becomes engaging, fascinating, deblocking, uninhibiting, liberating. He loses himself in his directing work, and has the generosity and gratitude of letting the actor simply perform. He always makes his argument in an implicit, mediated, devoted manner.

 


One might find this discretion unexpected to such a special character, but Alexandru Dabija is also a poet of the image: he assembles the image, brings it closer or more remote, places it on screen or makes it fade away, provides it with unity, style, signification. The director seems a bard who is steadfastly enamored with the art he serves, with innermost passion, irony, playfulness, and joy. To him, theatre remains a perpetually young first love, which brings tender consolation to the passage of time, to years and decades that fly by, to all traces of transience, redeemed by the durable memory of the total, authentic emotion experienced during first encounters. Such encounters are recalled by the director even today, to claim back the thrilling experience of a first love."



We have a new premiere in the Great Hall of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca: Master Manole by Lucian Blaga. After the 1930 performance under Ștefan Braborescu's stage direction and Alexa Visarion's 1973 production, we are looking forward to welcoming you to another performance based on Blaga's text. The premiere takes place Saturday, 9 June 2018, from 7.00 p.m. To introduce us into the atmosphere, we spoke with the director of the performance, Andrei Măjeri, and the costume designer, Lucian Broscățean.  


Eugenia Sarvari
: Andrei Măjeri, you graduated the Faculty of Theatre and Television of the "Babeș-Bloyai" University of Cluj, in 2014. The first performance you directed at the Cluj National was Pandora's Box by Katalin Thuróczy. You also directed here two texts by Rodrigo García, Agamemnon and Death and Reincarnation in a Cowboy in 2015 and 2016. How did you come upon Master Manole in 2018? 

 

Andrei Măjeri: It's for the first time that a text is suggested to me. I was always the one to choose the plays I was going to direct. Master Manole was suggested by Mr. Mihai Măniuțiu, and I gave a lot of thought to this idea, my first instinct being to reject it. I felt I couldn't say anything new about this text. I was wrong. I came back to it and, at the same time, I dug deeper into Blaga's universe with other dramatic, philosophical, but especially poetic texts. I realized it's a legit text, worth revisiting. For actors, it's a great chance to get extraordinary parts. I later thanked Mr. Măniuțiu for having challenged me in this way.
