Waiting for Godot

by Samuel Beckett
Directed by: Christiane J. Schneider

Waiting for Godot. A case study on our limitation or an outlook of mankind? Is the question in itself the answer and the tangible solution the actual question? We scrutinize the future from the shelter of the past. Past, present and future, they all intertwine in time, painting a picture of it. Is there waiting with no yesterday and no tomorrow, is there waiting in the present?

Press excerpts

"Peter Papakostidis is a genuine Pozzo, stout, overconfident, voluptuously tasting from his power over others, with a dehumanizing veracity. The gruesome trip is expressively suggested by Horia Săvescu by the clues of Lucy being subjected to an ordeal in an ancestral silence, seemingly cultivated in defying revolt that also instills in the character's features and by refusing its freedom. Rareş Hontzu – Wladimir – and Radu Vulpe – Estragon – act within the boundaries of the natural, with regard to scenic movement, as well as language, their concern being that of gradually transmitting the moods in the desperate, eternal wait, on a runway between earth and sky, between life and death."

Ion Jurca Rovina, in: Renaşterea Bănăţeană
