Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre will perform at Reflex3, the International Theatre Festival in Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania, held by the Tamási Áron Theatre. Invisible Duets will be shown to Romania’s audiences twice: on 21 and 22 March at 8 pm on the stage of the Tamási Áron Theatre (Studioul Nou).

Invisible Duets is a unique ?flânerie?, emerging out of boredom. Drifts, saunters, stories ? constantly starting all over again, constantly transforming one another, on and on; present and disappearing; noticed and rejected.
Therefore you might think that everything what disappears, even after it has disappeared, is living some kind of secret posthumous life, having a latent influence on everything what remains; as everything what disappears penetrates our lives in minimal doses, oftentimes much more dangerous for us than the controlling forces…
Jean Baudrillard, “Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?”
Invisible Duets is the 42th premiere of Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre. At the same time, it is only the second (after the legendary Magnolia) duo of the founders and artistic leaders of Dada in its 19-year history. Magnolia, which premiered in 2002, has already been staged in 21 European countries.

The Reflex International Theatre Festival with its 2009 and 2012 editions became a significant theatre festival, presenting some of the European theatrical culture?s most important performances. It brought several award winning productions, as the Deutsches Theater?s Oresteia directed by Michael Thalheimer, Oskaras Koršunovas?s Hamlet from OKT Theatre Lithuania, Persona. Marilyn of Teatr Dramatyczny, directed by Krystian Lupa, or Radio Müezzin of Rimini Protokoll.
László Bocsárdi, the festival director, previewed the upcoming edition, writing:
“With this edition of the festival we also offer vivid, qualitative and poetical contemporary performances for our audience members who wish for high-standard theatre. Our aim is to invite productions that respond to the world?s events in a reflexive way: classics in up-to-date version, riotously subjective contemporary, staggeringly powerful physical theatre, theatrical delusion, grim mirror-holding and artworks providing total theatre experience.”
