The Impossible Theatre is an non-governmental and non-profit organisation founded in 2003 in Cluj-Napoca in Romania. It is interested in East-West collaboration in European and world wide experimental theatre and its social impact. The main focus is for Romanian artists and public to relate to contemporary breakthroughs in performance arts (implementation of new media and technology, aesthetic tendencies, new artistic languages) by direct contact. These activities can fill in the lack of information and contacts, and the need for a stable meeting point for this artistic and social target group, as it can influence Romanian strategies to break its cultural isolation in independent artistic field. This intercultural competence and cross-border collaboration activities are also important for our foreign participants, as they have the opportunity to enlarge their competence and their appetite for intercultural artistic and social activities.
One of most relevant project is the MAN.In.FEST, an event addressing young people (15-35), artists and public, both from Romania and abroad, interested in new/experimental arts and media, as they are the ones whose new perception needs and social references are served by the experimental artistic field.
The organization also has experience in publishing and editorial project: man.in.fest, a monthly magazine about new tendencies in visual arts; The Impossible Theatre Library about theatre books (theory and playwright).
The general purpose of The Impossible Theatre is to promote new theatrical forms of expression and educate the public in the direction of experimental performances as a new means of expression more suited for the 21st century audience. Theatre is a living art form and that is why its existence is strictly connected to the society in which is created. For this we need to first bring the community closer to the theatre, for the theatre to be able to represent their image.
For this reason, within the project, we will be involved in:
- Organisation and management of Creole and Emigranci performance in Romania;
- Logistic support to the academic research team;
- Creation of a network of theatrical festivals in Romania.
