||Circles in the water.
A workshop with Andrei Serban told by Tania Radu
||The publication under this title was recently launched by ECUMEST, following the international workshop held by Andrei Serban in June 2004 in Arcus/ Sfintu Gheorghe, Romania.
At the invitation of the ECUMEST Association and during the meeting of Balkan Express – the performing arts network (that ECUMEST organised in 2004 in Romania), the prestigious theatre director Andrei Serban held a two-day workshop which brought at the Arcus Cultural Centre almost 20 young theatre directors and actors from Romania and the Balkans.
The launch took place on the occasion of a series of conferences held by Andrei Serban between 1-14 June 2005, organised by ECUMEST in Bucharest and Cluj.
The book tells the story of the step by step experience of the encounter with Andrei Serban in Arcus, offering a glimpse of the director’s working method. The publication also includes the notes of a personal ‘lecture’ of Andrei Serban about his directing experience in theatre and opera, as presented at a conference held in Bucharest on the same occasion.
ECUMEST will extensively distribute the book both in Romania and abroad to a large number of artists, organisations and instititutions active in the field of performing arts, as well as to theatre universities and faculties from the ECUMEST network.
