Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:   This study approaches Gianina Cărbunariu’s creation- as an example of political theatre in Romania. By critical exercise, the author intends to look into the post-communist Romanian reality. Her working technique includes thorough research of current topics of social interest. By documentary theatre methods, her texts are written directly for the stage, with the help of the team of actors she trains starting from their student years. She takes note of her audience, by trying to maintain constant contact with them, by stimulating them in the direction of actual dialogue on the topics she proposes for the stage. Since the beginning of her career she has been in the eye of the audience and critics abroad, while her performances, based on original plays, participate to important European festivals. Her plays have been translated and staged in Germany, France, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Italy. 

Keywords: director-playwright, dialogue, cultural identity, critical detachment, post-Brechtianism, documentation, extra-aesthetic perspective.
