About the Journal

In Europe of the 90's a new theatrical form rises up: the documentary theatre. By breaking the traditional way of analyzing history, this theatrical form aims to present our social present from a new point of view: that of the average man about the average man with words of the average man. It appears in 2009 in Transylvania as an initiative of Gianina Cărbunariu and her documentary performance called „20/20". The result of the show is the development of a dialectical relation between the spectator and performer arguing about the past from the perspective of the present. In the fictive frame of the theatre, we meet a real order of the society in which Romanian and Hungarian lives together. In "20/20" it doesn't matter what happened before 1990, it is important what society thinks about the past and what can they do with their freedom in the present.
