The Wider Image: Romania's Roma culture seeks stage
Inside the grey walls of an independent theatre in the northwest Romanian city of Cluj, Roma actress Elena Duminica braided the hair of her colleague Mihaela Dragan ahead of their show. As she braided, the theatre tested the lights for the play, "Gadjo Dildo", a cabaret-like performance inspired by real stories about the sexism and racism Roma women are often subject to in Romania. It is the first play staged by the Romanian feminist Roma theatre company Giuvlipen, which Dragan co-founded in 2014 because, she saw no alternative for the way Roma people were represented in the arts. "We advocate for Roma artists to have a voice, because Roma art was pretty marginalised and never valued, always stereotyped. I think this is our role, to make Roma art mainstream and cool, so that people come to our shows and talk about them." REUTERS/Andreea Campeanu SEARCH "CAMPEANU ROMA" FOR THIS STORY.
