About this cooperation, the famous director Andrei Serban declares for the site unteatru.ro: "I am glad to have received a call to work in the theater. I found the atmosphere of youth in La Mama in New York, the same friendly and free spirit, a community of artists who without any material reflections animate the passion of creating a theater differently, discovering new shapes. And the idea of these new forms led me directly to Treples and the "Galeb", a drama that followed my whole life and which I did not fully understand, even though I put it in different languages three continents, with I hope this version will be the last one, although we will not be able to disclose the mystery that makes the story ending with the violent death that Chekhov classifies as a comedy, I believe that we (again) will discover the paradox that the only durability in the theater is the state of continuous change If we accept that any conclusion is not final, we can begin to look at it. "
Refugees Alexander Dabije, producers of Odeon Theater Bucharest, finish the Czech periplus of the first days of FITCA in 2018 on Saturday, November 17, at 20:00 in the Great Hall. It is a "spectacle based on fine psychological rigor, with rebellious characters who constantly spit between disobedience and religion. Projection of the safety of man with money, lies, superficiality and ruthlessness."
