Andrei Mureșanu Theatre
ANDREI MURESANU THEATER (TAM)
The "Andrei Mureşanu" Theater was founded in 1987. It is a repertory theater, financed by the Local City Council, and also produces contemporary art productions as dance-theater, image-theater and experimental productions. There are more nonverbal productions which were presented in several important theater festivals all over the world as: Brussels (Belgium), Leipzig (Germany), Tampere (Finland), Trabzon (Turkey), Faro (Portugal), Nitra (Slovakia), Zsámbék (Hungary, Kishinev (Moldavia), Plymouth (Great Britain), Varna (Bulgaria), Torino, Rome, Venice (Italy) etc.
Andrei Mureșanu Theatre offers plays of classic and contemporary drama, both Romanian and universal.
In past years, TAM produced shows of great distinction and organised festivals with interesting topics, but the most important festival from its short history is ATELIER FESTIVAL - festival of experimental theatre. The performances mounted in this institution received recognition of their value, both national and international.
During festivals, the theater hosted productions from Romania, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Czech Republic, Brazil etc.
TAM was also invited to major European Theatre Festivals such as Leipzig (Germany), Nitra (Slovakia) Zsambek (Hungary), Trabzon (Turkey), Tampere (Finland), Bern (Switzerland), Turin (Italy), Faro (Portugal), Varna (Bulgaria), Edinburgh and worked with directors, designers, composers, choreographers and actors of the highest quality. During this time an artistic and technical team of high professionalism was formed.
An important place in the history of the theatre is that of the well-known director Radu Afrim, the pioneer of new orientations in Romanian theatre. His productions were invited in national and international festivals of high importance and his works are appreciated at european level.
Though it often faced difficult situations, TAM managed to enchant audiences with quality productions. Its aim was always to conquer all that is new and valuable. The young and energetic team greatly contributes to the survival of this theater, due to the actors', directors' and technicians' courage and ambition, people who know how to face difficult situations and to bring their art in front of spectators of all ages and all social categories.
