What would a utopian theater of the future look like for you as a Roma actor? Unofficially we are the largest ethnic minority and yet Romania does not have a theater dedicated to Roma culture. For me, the theater of the future is based on horizontal structures - it's non-hierarchical, queer, feminist, intersectional, anti-capitalist and anti-patriarchal. It will pay all its employees decently and equally, without ranking labour by categories of importance or visibility. It is engaged in the fight against gender, ethnic and class inequalities. It is an inclusive theater that makes marginalized and ignored stories heard. And it is a theater that not only addresses the privileged classes in the big cities, but is accessible, free and decentralized, such that every community will in the future have a theater in proximity.

Sar sikavelas o utopikano teatro e avutnesqo vaht andar tute sar rom aktoro? Sar sikavela o utopikano teatro e avutnesqo vaxt andat tute sar rom aktóro? Bioficiálo, ame seam I so maj bari minoritéta thaj vi kadja and-I Rumunia na-I nijekh teatro vaș I rromani kultúra.
