The show – developed as a performance by ten actors together with the choreographer Florin Fieroiu and his team – talks about gender roles and about society’s expectations towards the individual. The movement elements and the texts created by the performers, seasoned with a dose of improvisation, generated a unitary show that comments with humor the deficiencies and aspirations of each. The opening of the German State Theatre Timișoara towards movement theatre determined the invitation of this show to many festivals, from Arad to Tbilisi, Georgia.

Florin Fieroiu graduated the „Floria Capsali“ Choreography College din București and studied Dance at the National University of Theatre and Film in Bucharest (UNATC) and at Duke University, North Carolina. Co-founder, in 1992, of the first contemporary dance company in Romania – The Marginals. In 1996, he won the „Prix Individuel d’Interpretation“ at the 5th edition of the Paris International Choreographic Encounters. In 2008, he received a special award for choreography from the Romanian Theatre Guild (UNITER). Author of many dance performances and theatre choreographies, he teaches at UNATC and works as an independent choreographer.
