Nothing but a real story told in real time!
Through “Incubator” the audience was immersed into an exceptional situational experience and creatively explored memories of ante 89’ Romania. This highly interactive theatre event, first from the Open Arena series, is emphasising the story of Romanian artist Mariana Gordan and her dramatic encounter with Securitatea in 1979 in Ceausescu`s Romania. For almost two hours, Mariana lead the audience into the labyrinths of her memory testifying about her escape from a 30 years sentence in a Communist jail and about her exile in Britain. Moreover, the audience had the chance to creatively respond to Mariana’s story and to share individual memories.
“Incubator” is where you hear, feel, taste, see, learn, cry, laugh, speak, meet someone new, find impressive stories, drink some wine, kiss your lover, tell your friends about what happen, think about yourself…
An emotional carousel experience designed by Immersive Theatre and co-created by the audience.
