Project Summary

Back-Alley Front Stage in Romania

First independent theater

First independent theater: Within a historic quarter of Bucharest, this project transforms a dilapidated plot into the first independent theater in the city since 1946.

It will house a theater company that has been operating without a dedicated space since 1999, anchoring a cultural institute into the city fabric it wishes to engage.
