    Gianina Carbunariu, Yorick Studio Hungarian Theatre,

    Shining a light on the universal issue of ethnic conflict and the divisions that existed in Romania, 20/20 is a piece of documentary theatre about the dramatic and traumatic events of March 1990 in Tirgu-Mures, a bilingual city in Romania.

    News and information about the conflict were suppressed, and much of the detail now only exists in the memories of its protagonists. Yet Director Gianina Carbunariu passionately believes in the importance of excavating these memories to understand how quickly ethic tensions can once again rise up on the edges of Europe.

    Devised with five young actors from Bucharest and five from Yorick Studio Hungarian Theatre, 20/20 is a bi-lingual production based on personal stories and interviews with the citizens of Tirgu-Mures. Supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute, 20/20 explored the expressions of violent nationalism, prejudice, distrust and alienation that can quickly lead to many of conflicts we see across world today.

    Presented by LIFT and the Romanian Cultural Institute at Platform Theatre with support from Yorick Studio Hungarian Theatre
