https___cdnevbuccom_images_59346636_1043

10 - 11/04/2019 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X8PH

 

Our theatre programme continues in April with a novel piece inspired by Shakespeare’s dramaturgy and written by London-based Romanian actress Olivia Negrean, entitled ‘Feast (a play in one cooking)’. Six of the Bard’s female characters are brought to life by a cast of female actors of five different nationalities, including the writer herself.

As they start to understand each other’s lives, Isabella, Lady Macbeth, Ophelia, Lady Anne, Imogen and Emilia debate on the importance of literature and what it means to be a woman in a world-famous story.

Directed by Philip Parr, the play tackles various topics from feminism, equality, mental health, sisterhood and community to the right to speak one’s mind, magical realism and contemporary Shakespeare.

FEAST (a play in one cooking)

Writer: Olivia Negrean

Director: Philip Parr

Cast: Olivia Negrean, Sara Barison, Charlie Coletta, Lucy Ford, Hannah Lucas and Marie Rabe

Produced by: Parrabbola Theatre Company

Running time: 1 hour. The show will be performed in English.

“I had the urge to write this play in response to the Shakespeare plays that are being performed, where men still are the central characters. Female characters deserve longer time on stage, hence I wrote about a dinner for Shakespeare’s women. There is no main character, all six parts are equal and there is an important ensemble created. Having actresses of different nationalities play characters that are 90% of the time played by British actresses has again been extremely important. Shakespeare is a ‘universal language’ and deserves the chance to be played by a diverse cast. The reason real cooking is involved is because it is an important part of the plot and it also envelops the audience through the smells and visuals created. Eating is a social thing that brings people together. And at the end of the play that is exactly what happens: audience and actors are part of the same story.” – Olivia Negrean

Olivia Negrean is a Romanian actress and playwright based in London, who has a great passion for Shakespeare and wants to bring the female characters of his plays to the forefront. She has done so through FEAST (having written the play and performing in it), but also as an actress and assistant director for two different Shakespeare productions that were created for the International Shakespeare Festival in Craiova, in 2016 and 2018, respectively, where she performed in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Apart from creating her own work, Olivia collaborated with the Romanian Cultural Institute on two projects that promoted Romanian/Hungarian writing and Romanian history: Andras Visky’s play about a young Mother Teresa and a play about Ecaterina Teodoroiu, written and directed by Liana Ceterchi.

Philip Parr is the founder of Parrabbola theatre company, which focuses on theatre that tells the stories of communities - whether geographic, cultural or social. Philip has been invited two years in a row to direct Shakespeare plays for the International Shakespeare Festival in Craiova, Romania and has previously worked with Romanian actress Alina Serban. Philip is a founding council member of the European Shakespeare Festivals network and Director of the York International Shakespeare Festival.

Caramitru - Mălăele, câte-n lună și în stele

Sun. 14 Apr, 2019 2:00 pm

Pe 14 aprilie @Povești spuse-n românește vă invită la Leicester Square Theatre la un spectacol mereu surprinzător, mereu altul și cu un umor tot mai spumos.
Ion Caramitru recită răscolitor și aduce în scenă amintirea vremurilor trecute, imaginând, cu inteligență și iscusință, răspunsuri pe măsură unui Horațiu Mălăele vulcanic, irezistibil și de un haz efervescent.

Mereu surprinzător, mereu diferit și mereu de excepție, spectacolul Caramitru Mălaele, câte-n lună și în stele este un spectacol de improvizație… „pentru că improvizația este, de fapt, starea de grație a actorului”, cum spune Horațiu Mălăele. Spectacolul este mereu altul, ritmul este diferit, umorul tot mai spumos și ingeniozitatea tot mai evidentă. Amintirea vremurilor trecute este adusă în scenă de un Caramitru care recită răscolitor, imaginând, cu inteligență și iscusință, răspunsuri pe măsură unui Horațiu Mălăele vulcanic,irezistibil și de un haz efervescent, cei doi avându-i martori pe Shakespeare, Eminescu sau Topârceanu. 


Concert de Muzică Bizantină: “Hymns of Holy Week” / «Imnuri din Săptămâna Patimilor»

Sun. 14 Apr, 2019 6:00 pm

https___cdnevbuccom_images_58993414_1550

Parohia “Sf. Gheorghe” din Londra, 186 Fleet Street, EC4A 2HR, organizează în data de 14 Aprilie orele 18.00 un concert de muzică bizantină intitulat “Hymns of Holy Week” (Imnuri din Săptămâna Patimilor).


Formatul concertului este unul inedit pentru tradiția românească: cântările bisericești vor fi însoțite de acompaniament instrumental. Astfel, maestrul grec al clarinetului, Thanassis Vassilopoulos, ne va introduce în atmosfera de tânguire și tristețe strălucitoare a Săptămânii Patimilor prin sonoritatea unică oferită de clarinet. Imnele vor fi cântate în limba greacă de către apreciatul protopsalt Angelos Achtinoudis, în timp ce talentatul muzician Arsenis Nassis va completa acompaniamentul instrumental la orgă și percuție.
Ana Achtinoudis va fi naratorul concertului (în limba română).


Organizatorii își propun să aducă în locașul de pe malurile Tamisei atmosfera specifică Postului Mare, cel mai bine exprimată prin imnele bisericești a căror frumusețe este greu de descris în cuvinte.


Totodată, organizatorii își doresc să promoveze activitatea și proiectele desfășurate de Romanian Orthodox Church & Center, inclusiv a proiectului «FII CTITOR!» inițiat în cadrul parohiei «Sfântul Gheorghe» Londra pentru construcția unei biserici și a unui centru comunitar românesc care să permită dezvoltarea activităților misionare și cultural-educative dedicate membrilor comunității românești din Londra.


Peste 200 de persoane (adulți și copii) sunt așteptate să participe la eveniment.


Biletele pot fi achiziționate de la biserică sau de pe site-ul eventbrite aici
Afișul evenimentului este inclus mai jos. Mai multe detalii despre evenimente pe site-ul parohiei: http://www.sfgheorghelondra.org.uk/ro/ , precum și pe pagina de Facebook: aici.
