AVANTI P&M is very pleased to announce that our clients MIHAI ARSENE and https://www.spotlight.com/6775-9087-5039" target="_blank">SIMONA ARMSTRONG have been cast, are currently rehearsing and will be performing in the first take of Matei Visniec's play WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE CELLO on UK stage, directed by Vasile Nedelcu for Atelier Theatre and The Romanian Cultural Institute. The performance is opening in London's VAULT Festival 2017 and will run between 8th - 12th February. 


WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE CELLO?



Something is wrong, the rain just won't stop. In a waiting room: the man with the newspaper, the lady with the veil, the old man with the stick. In a corner, the man with the cello is ceaselessly playing his instrument. Very quickly, the repetitive and obsessing tune drives them mad. They try, taking turns, to convince him to stop, but the man with the cello won't. He is playing, more and more passionately, alone against everybody... The others will have to organize themselves against this unexpected musical aggression...

*****

This is a brilliant play for our times, written by a major European playwright, Matei Visniec, who sought asylum in France from Romania in 1987. Banned in Romania until after the fall of Ceausescu, this razorsharp and very funny play on intolerance and the terrible consequences of living without thinking was written from a place of deep experience.

*****

VAULT FESTIVAL 8th - 12th February at 19:15pm with Matinee on 11th February at 16:45.

You can BOOK YOUR TICKET now, if you want to see our actors and immerse yourself in an absurd situation of our daily life...

A door, a bridge, an individual.

Each can connect or separate space, place, time and people. Bringing together a cast from Canada, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Spain, Russia and Portugal, this devised ensemble piece reflects on otherness as interdependence.

The performers switched memories, reshuffled personal stories, gradually blurring the line between individual memories, merging each image into a common, kaleidoscopic vision of ourselves. In a moment in which bridges are abruptly being closed and islands are moving further away, 'I am because you are' invites the public to question identity building based on the fear of difference. This performance is where we see our future, a safe place in which collective memory is a land to build upon.

Directed by: David Silva, Award Winner Director at the International Theatre Festival FATAL with Othello by William Shakespeare, performed at National Theatre D. Maria II (Lisbon, Portugal) and Teatro Principal (Galicia, Spain). Award Winner Playwright with the play "Pinocchio & Red Riding Hood. Assistant Director of João Mota (who worked with Peter Brook) at National Theatre D. Maria II (Lisbon, Portugal).
