The gladiator butterfly. Political, queer and feminist theater on Romanian Stage

A book of essays by Cristina Modreanu and drawings by Dan Perjovschi published by Curtea Veche Publishing in November 2016.

Since the very beginning of the 21st Century, an intense revival of the work of activist creators has been seen on the international stage. In the last decade - referred by the essays in this book - this tendency registered in the Romanian theater too. An inclination towards the ethics instead of the aesthetics of the theater could be observed and this is what presently connects Romanian stage to the global one. For the first time after the high interest in Romanian theater in the 90's, political theater produces a synchronization of the local stage with the international avant-garde theater ideas.
