Homo Americanus – Theater

November 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm

Romanians of Washington, DC has the pleasure of inviting you to a unique theater performance “Homo Americanus” on Sunday, November 13 starting at 5 pm. The show will take place at the Lyon Village Community House located at 1920 N Highland Street, Arlington VA 22201. Q&A session with Paul Cimpoieru following the performance. Please arrive promptly!

The performance in Washington, DC will follow the play’s presentation, just two days before, at the world’s biggest solo festival – United Solo Festival and its performance at the prodigious Off-Broadway ROW Theater.

The American Dream now takes on a new form under this unique interpretation. The uniqueness of this universal language is determined by the freedom with which Paul Cimpoieru uses alternate forms of performing arts (acting, movement, contemporary dance, martial arts) as vehicles to transmit ideas, experiences, and emotions. The images and symbols created have a special force that induces unique emotions.

Homo Americanus in fact, Homo Universalis, is telling the universal story of the dreamer-fighter-survivor hidden deep down inside of each of us. Homo Americanus is the first part of Paul’s theater trilogy titled #ecceHOMO about the (contemporary) Human Condition. The shows speak the Language of the World (a universal theatrical mix of dance, theater, movements and visuals) and go beyond the border of language and culture and ethnicity. It is written and performed by Paul Cosma Cimpoieru and produced by the Two of Us Theater Company.

Paul Cosma Cimpoieru is a Romanian independent artist located in Bucharest. He is also the Artistic Director of the Romanian independent Theater Company Two of Us that gives him the freedom to explore different avenues of creativity and performance where he searches for a new combination of acting and dancing, non-verbal, and physical theatre.

Tickets are $35 per person and available on line at http://hadc.eventbrite.com. Tickets on the day of the performance and at the door, pending availability, are $45 per person. Seating on a first come first seated basis. Limited parking available. English & Romanian. Running time: 70 minutes.
