Summary: How do young people react and represent themselves in the actual postcommunist
society? What kind of images do they have about the recent past, especially
related to the socialist era? The field of political and social representations of
youngsters seems blurred, and the so called refutal of civic implication of the new
generations became a stereotype of daily conversations between adults, school teachers
and media anchors. In real life experiences, this stereotype suffers profound
corrections: a strange interest for religious experiences tends to fill the gap of the
political distaste; the urban groups of teenagers in Romania, especially the male ones,
reveal a flexible universe of representations and a particular rhetoric of discourses, built
on fragmentary quotations from popular culture, parody of media clichés and a lot of
paradoxical sadness related to the recent past – including their intra familial
experiences. But, this uncomfortable combination – “Kill Bill”-like – is not entirely
escapist and does not exclude the accuracy of social observations.
The research and creation program Everyday Life Drama was born in 2004, as an
interdisciplinary project with two immediate and even urgent dimensions: the first one
was to re-link the playwriting practices to the social and political context, after more
than one decade of aesthetical escapism and symbolical dominance of the theatre
directing in Romania; the second one was the need of renewal in educational methods,
by joining together the students from different programs, in a common effort of rebuilding
a coherent perspective about their lives and their discourses. The program
combines the workshops for video-journalism, creative writing in media and theatre,
and photo-journalism, but also direct anthropological field research, in a research camp
of ten days, each of the last five years. The importance of the program is that it offers
each year a new bunch of artistic products: video-productions and documentaries,
plays and film scenarios, written reports and interviews, photo exhibitions. The last two
years, the program was awarded two consecutive grants for Cultural Intervention from
the Ministry of Culture in Romania.
From 2007, the theme is “X-Men & Women Generation”. Next year, the interest
of the team will focus on the ways recent history - and especially the communist
period – was absorbed by the young people representations. The paper will resume
some of the actual conclusions of this work in progress, and will present a small
part of the plays and scenarios founded on recent history and everyday life stories...
