What would a utopian theater of the future look like for you as a Roma actress? With the co-founding of Giuvlipen, I sought to create a platform for Roma actresses and actors in Romania. Over the past five years we have joined forces and created eight shows within our theater company. I hope that in the future our work will be rewarded with a physical theater space and that we will move from the independent to the institutional level, with the condition that our artistic practice, which is rooted in feminist, queer and anti-racist principles, is not annihilated—more than that, that it become a model for other theater institutions.
