CRIME Romanian Transfer
I am writing today to ask for your help. Since leaving Drama Centre I have joined a company called Bezna Theatre, a Romanian-British collaboration dedicated to social change. My journey with them started during a project with the BA Directing course at Drama Centre, where we staged CRIME by Nico Vaccari, a response to Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, which explores the perils of deregulated capitalism and it’s effects on society.
We then managed to get a transfer to the Etcetera Theatre in Camden for another week. This was a brand new experience for me, adapting the play to a brand new space and playing to new audiences outside of our usual peers. The play received 4 and 5 star reviews from Fringe Reviewers which you can see here:
After this, Drama Centre London chose us to represent the school at an International Theatre Festival in Suceva, Romania. This was an amazing opportunity for us, being able to perform this play for a Romanian audience, who have had deregulated capitalism thrust upon them after the fall of their Communist Dictatorship. The play was awarded, Best Play 2014 and I was awarded Best Male Actor at the festival (we were greeted with the surprise that it was a competition upon arrival).
And now we have managed to arrange a transfer to an up and coming Independent Theatre (Unteatru) in the capital of Romania, Bucharest. We have been given a prime slot during the 4th Birthday Celebrations of the theatre, and have secured leading theatre reviewers in Romania. But we need your help to make this transfer possible.
There are 5 days left in our crowd funding campaign, and we are still £600 off our target. Please take a quick look at our video, which will give you some more information about the company, the play, and our ideals, and if you feel that you can support, even the smallest donation would be most appreciated.
Thank you all for your continued support, and I wish you all the best.
