Show details:


Băgău , an adaptation of Ioana Bradea's novel directed by Cristina Giurgea, creates the inner universe of Andrea, a young woman who works at an erotic hotline (90s - 2000s) and suffers after breaking up with a man. But neither the erotic line nor the man seem like stable elements in objective reality, but part of Andrea's subjective reality. The area where the show works very well is creating a clash of solitudes – on the one hand, the girls from the erotic line, with different personal histories and backgrounds, which makes the community heterogeneous, without coagulating it, and on the other hand, the men, an archive of angry, alienating solitudes, a depressing, mentally and emotionally degraded masculinity. They are two worlds that do not meet physically, although there are attempts on one side, always refused by the other. The sound universe reflects this diversity in solitude, from Creep (Radiohead) to Of, my life by Costi Ioniță & Adrian Minune. The hard work, which involves duplication and contact with the desperation and/or aggressiveness of others, marks the girls, each with their own abyss. Of course, the language is up to the "work", licentious, without sweetening the abrasiveness of the environment. Here is a performance by Iulia Colan in the role of Andrea because its score is complex, with multiple sudden transitions from an aggressive epic to a lyrical monologue, which the actress skillfully "choreographs".
