Press Reviews

At the Gypsies is a pompous and cold performance, with a luxuriant , artificious theatricality. For Alexander Hausvater, Eliade’s short story is a pretext to display images and ideas about the gypsy as “the only natural bridge between Orient and Occident” . The gypsy’s life is a means for the modern, desacrated world to have acces to “ritual”, to “roots” and to the mythological conscience. In the miracle box named theatre , Gavrilescu’s story becomes an initiating road, for both spectators and actors. We are invited to exorcise the evil within ourselves, along with the main character.

In At the Gypsies, the actions and the characters become fragments that look for the whole. The main character is played by five actors , who re-compose an existence out of pieces of personality. But the fragmentary existence must be accepted, even if we are confronted with a nostalgia for old models:”It felt so good when we lived in a black and white world ! Now we live in a world of shards, I which the most tragical thing is to look at a tragedy unable to do anything”.
