The 5th Edition of the Interferences International Theatre Festival has concluded on Sunday evening, with The Good Person of Szechwanperformed by the ensemble of the Vígszínház from Budapest. The Hungarian Theatre of Cluj hosted 21 theatrical ensembles from 14 different countries during the 11 days of the festival. This year the biennial theatrical event welcomed ensembles from all around the world - from South Korea to the United States of America, from Germany and Luxembourg to Russia, etc. The main theme of the festival was The Stranger’s Odyssey, a topic represented in the 31 performances rendered by the guest ensembles of the event.

 

FESTIVAL DIARY 11.
Krapp’s Last Tape” by Samuel Beckett, directed by Jarosław Fret (Theatre ZAR, Poland) is a minimalist performance that asks questions about Beckett and his virtual world. “Why he has placed a tape recorder in “Krapp’s Last Tape”? Why bananas are the only organic thing in this play?” 
INCREASINGLY FAMILIAR STRANGENESS AT THE INTERFERENCES
Sold out performance venues accompany the 5th edition of the Interferences International Theatre Festival in Cluj, which focuses on the idea of strangeness. The most popular performance of the first week was Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, directed by Declan Donellan, a coproduction of the Moscow Art Drama Theatre Pushkin and the Cheek by Jowl ensemble. The classic story placed within a contemporary Russian setting analyzes the relationship between power and the individual. 
MULTIPLE ARTFORMS PRESENT AT THE INTERFERENCES
In addition to the several performances that take place daily, during the past weekend, the Interferences Festival of Cluj awaited its guests also with movie screenings, concerts, book presentations and exhibitions
