Theatre's fear of film

Little new is happening in theatre nowadays, believes Romanian director Andrei Serban, who has directed productions on numerous stages in Western Europe and the USA. If we look at what is going on in the world of film, for instance the rebirth of Romanian film by a young generation which is expressing some strong and rather discomforting ideas, then in comparison, theatre is in a phase of stagnation. It has not yet found its place at the beginning of the century. We theatre-makers are afraid, semi-desperate, as it were, that film could overtake us. We try to copy film, to employ means of film in the theatre... But the attempt at modernisation by incorporating elements of multimedia technology weakens the art of theatre."
