Romanian – Polish Theatre Festival
In October 2017, 5 Romanian young people and 12 Polish young people, coordinated by their teachers Antonina Pauch, Ola and Cristina Hangea, had the crazy idea to organise a theatre festival in Zielona Gora, Poland. Thus, during 5 days, they developed their creativity, as well as their dancing, team working and English skills, and they eventually produced an unforgettable performance on the stage of ZOK Cultural Centre in Zielona Gora.
The “Romanian-Polish theatre festival” project was co-funded from the local budget of the municipality of Bistrita for the year 2017. Moreover, we also had the financial support of the European Foundation for Education and Culture from Zielona Gora, our project partner.
Our project is unique because our communities have never organized a similar event before, it is in fact, a premiere, and also because it succeeded to consolidate a partnership we started in 2014, to bring closer the twin communities from Bistrita and Zielona Gora, to develop knowledge about the Romanian and Polish cultures, languages and life styles and also to give life to new friendships. In addition to that, it stirred the young participants’ interest in the art of theatre.
