Tamási Áron Theatre
The Theatre of Sfântu Gheorghe was established in 1948 as a permanent professional artistic institution, under the name of Hungarian State Theatre.
With its new artistic program, the Tamási Áron Theatre is now one of the most important theatre workshops in Transylvania. Its performances are based on the clashes between the powerful visuality of the Romanian theatre and the more rational, realistic Hungarian theatre, but also keen on the German expressionist theatre, resulting in a synthesis that defines the language of this institution, thus becoming an integral part of the contemporary European context.
The company is consistent in its artistic work and already has a vivid relationship with its audience, becoming a scene for emotional and intellectual contact, a meeting point where artists and audience can freely evolve.
With this in mind, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the theatre’s establishment, in 2009, the first edition of the International Theatre Festival REFLEX was organised. Its aim was to present theatre plays that are created in a vivid and poetic manner and in line with the contemporary theatre phenomenon.
