HEART AND OTHER MEAT PREPARATIONS
National Theater "Marin Sorescu" Craiova announces the opening of the 2020-2021 season with the premiere of the show "Heart and other meat dishes ” by Dan Coman, directed by Radu Afrim, set design by Irina Moscu.
THE PREMIERE WILL TAKE PLACE THIS WEEKEND - SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 7:00 PM. The show will be played in the "Amza Pellea" Hall, and the audience will be able to sit in the hall according to the new rules imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, the whole concept of the show started from the unusual situation we all went through, from March until now.
About love and the colorful dust that comes with it. About the labrador butterfly struggling in vain at the end of reality. About involuntary humor and voluntary loneliness. About truth, tenderness and sex. About children, poetry and coffee. About the body and how it weighs. About the small crises that erupted in the midst of the crisis. About beauty and about the ever drier souls, already strengthened at the edges. About pleasure and illness. About language and how color flows from things. About indoor couples. About life hanging a few inches outside of us. About the heart and other meat dishes . Dan Coman
