The Student



For the ones who love theater, there are some classical plays fragments being prepared, which are going to be interpreted by the actors team coordinated by Cristi Bojan, graduate of a film and theater course, who works at Tirgu Mures Arts University. Among the 20 actors who will come to AWAKE there are students of the Tirgu Mures Arts University, high school students of Arts High School, but also members the Guga Jr. group of Tirgu Mures National Theater. They will play approximately 30 roles, in more pieces of classical plays, like “A Midsummer’s Night Dream”, “The Taming of the Shrew” and “The Tempest” by W. Shakespeare, “Scapin the Schemer”, “The Physician in spite of Himself” by Molier and “Don’t put Love at Try” by Bassilio Locatelli. The fragments will be played in different locations within the festival, in the natural setting of Teleki park, using the “urban theater” concept.

The first edition of AWAKE will take place between  1- 3 September, just a few kilometers away from Tirgu Mures, on the fabulous estate of Teleki Castle in Gornesti. Music, oversized artistic installations, special designs, films, theater, books, food and beverages – all of these sound very promising for anyone who wishes for a summer vacation, at Count’s Teleki castle.
