The project is a creative process combined with a research endeavor that intends to start a dialogue concerning the contemporary state of families living in Romania, in such a way in which it continuously monitors the event participants.
In March 2016 more than 70 in-depth interviews were carried out in Transylvania with young people between the ages of 12 and 19, as well as with their parents concerning the parent-child relationship. The questions included within these interviews were carefully formulated with the help of psychologists, sociologists, social workers and pedagogues, in order to receive the most accurate responses. The rehearsal process that began in June was complemented by a one-week long summer workshop in August, led by András Urbán. The team members of the unconventional creative process – actors, acting students, students of theater studies – can try out a variety of tasks: they can write, play, put forth ideas, reflect and ask questions.
Our goal is to get familiarized with the relationships arising within families, so as to be able to address them using the instruments of contemporary art. We are confident that this event will help our community to become aware of the problems that exist within the family, and to start a dialogue about them, while jointly considering possible solutions to these issues.
