Event Details

Les Epoux/Gli Sposi by David Lescot a show by Frosini/Timpano in the frame of Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe on stage at Bucharest - Teatrul Odeon for the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Ceauşescu regime On Sunday, December 22nd, at Teatrul Odeon in Bucharest, the show Les Epoux - Gli Sposi by David Lescot will be presented for the first time in Romania, directed and interpreted by the company Frosini / Timpano. December 22nd is a symbolic day because it marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Ceauşescu regime in Romania. Les Epoux - Gli Sposi | a Romanian tragedy is the story of an ordinary power couple: Nicolae Ceausescu and Elena Petrescu. Capricious and bloody dictators, these Macbeth and Lady Macbeth of the Balkans have sown terror in the Romanian people and then ended up summarily executed in front of the cameras, under the eyes of the world, on December 25th, 1989. Who were the Ceausescu spouses? And what was the fate of Romania after their fall? We have tried to please these two characters, who are described as two cynical tyrants exalted by the delirium of omnipotence but also as two ordinary retired people, two poor figures, even a little tender and helpless. We tried to work on a balance between distance and closeness and to graft the ambiguity throughout the scenic construction. (Daniele Timpano and Elvira Frosini) Les Epoux - Gli Sposi at Teatrul Odeon is an event organized in collaboration with the European Center Direct Botosani and the Association EUROPAEUS (Rome), in the frame of the European project Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe - Beyond Borders? The show will be followed by a shared debate with the audience, moderated by Mihaela Michailov, author of Fabulamundi and theatre critic.
