The project Playing Identities: Migration, Creolization, Creation intends to inquire into the concept of “creolization” a specific mode of socio-cultural transformation in which different identities are put at stake. This vision, inspired by the poetic insight of E. Glissant, is here addressed to two different processes of creation. On one side Theatre, on the other Humanities and Social Sciences research.
In this artistic process we want to dialogue with the reality about our situation as workers. In the rule of art workers, we are trying to understand what is going on in this moment here in Romania. We will perform an action to show shortly what we understand about it, playing ironically around our awareness, our feelings, our efforts and our tragedy.
