ROMA THEATER IS NOT NOMADIC

ROMA THEATRE IS NOT NOMADIC! is an itinerary project started in 2017 and developed through 2018
de teatru rom ale companiei noastre, realizate la finalul anului 2017 și 2018. Scopul principal al proiectului este discutarea rolului și  necesității unui teatru contemporan al minorității rome din România. Miza principală este facilitarea accesului la spectacole care valorizează dramaturgia romă contemporană și realizarea unui dezbateri naționale privind relevanța înființării Teatrului Rom în
România. Proiectul a fost realizat cu sprijinul AFCN. Producțiile prezentate sunt o parte a culturii rome contemporane conectată la partea cea mai dinamică a culturii contemporane.

SOCIO-POLITICAL CONTEMPORARY CONTEXT

Although Roma are the second minority in Romania, the contemporary Roma culture is still in a
marginal position. There is no Roma theatre of the state nor dedicated sections in the existing
theatres. There is no cultural institution that brings together actors, directors, or playwrights,
and no interest in addressing the real issues of Roma communities in society. Another problematic
aspect is the representation of Roma culture as traditional, folkloric, and non-contemporary.
Roma culture is relevant, dynamic and should be supported.

SOCIAL STIGMA AND DISCRIMINATION

We still live in a society wherein negative stereotypes of Roma, and of their experience,
permeate the public space.
Systemic racism, discrimination, socio-economic persecution, symbolic violence, even historical
events such as Roma slavery or the Roma holocaust are missing from the mainstream consciousness.
Roma are still facing social exclusion, deeply rooted in history.
