“Art Cord” Cultural Association returns, after the independent production made in 2013 with “Old clown wanted” by Matei Vişniec, with a very special show, Sister Beatrice, by Maurice Maeterlinck, a performance performed in a church in downtown Cluj-Napoca. Through this project, the association wishes to bring multiculturalism first, but also to introduce and re-enter into the artistic circuit of the down unconventional places, spaces in oblivion.
The performance with Sister Beatrice by M. Maeterlinck is a collaboration exercise between the Romanian and Hungarian communities in Cluj-Napoca. The approach is completely new, with live music, the show being performed in a church and its annexes, thus wishing to attract spectators to a special experience. Made in the first instance in Hungarian language, the show aims to bring a new perspective on the original piece. The show will be accessible to all, regardless of age, with subtitles, both in Romanian and French. Another new thing is that the team wants the same distribution to play in Romanian in the nearby futre. The project aims to facilitate the access of young people (and not only) to values that concern us in everyday life: multiculturalism, religious freedom, respect for the architectural heritage.
