The German State Theatre is honored to invite you to the premiere of ”The Human Foolishness”, directed by Simona Vintilă, based on the story written by Ion Creangă. The event will take place Friday, 14th of December 2018, 7.30PM, in the Great Hall.

How many types of stupidity are there? How does it register and what is the proper way of dealing with it? And, most of all, what are we going to do with the salt block? These are some questions which ” The Human Foolishness”, directed by Simona Vintilă, tries to answer. The play, inspired from the story written by Ion Creangă, dedicated to children, and performed with a modern approach, tells the story of a group of school kids who stage, according to their own understanding, the famous encounters of the traveler who discovers in his journeys bigger fools than the ones from his own village. Agreeable, funny, honest, genuine, rounded by the original music, and summed up by the pay-off: ”To be foolish is to be human, and it can be remedied.”

With: Dana Borteanu, Daniela Török, Isa Berger, Tatiana Sessler Toami, Simona Vintilă, Harald Weisz, Radu Brănici and Richard Hladik. Further more, the artistic team is comprised of Rareș Hontzu – assistant director; Zsolt Fehérvári – set and costumes; Cristian Ienciu – video montage; Alex Halka – original soundtrack.
