Site-specific, immersive theatre and gamification

From her graduation project in 1994 ongoing, Anca Berlogea has focused on site-specific and site-oriented projects, encompassing a tour on the way to Compostela with a performance based on the Gospel of John, co-directed with her professor, Dragos Galgotiu, in 2003.


While living in Blaj for five years, from 2015-2020, she involved more and more young people, reviving history and historical places through site-specific performances. This experiecne opened also new ways of perceiving theatre, including gamification. More on this below, on, a treasure hunt game in the surroundings of Blaj, in the footsteps of well-known writers of the region, who marked the history of Romanian language and politics. Theatrical improvisation games were part of the challenges, devised with students in 2020.

Two Strindberg projects are now in progress, one being "Easter - testimonies from the present", as an immersive site-oriented performance, and eventually also as a video-art installation.
