Mirella Nedelcu-Patureau on Moldova's Europe-bashing

The Moldovan playwright Nicoleta Esinencu has achieved international fame. Her play "Fuck you, Eu.ro.Pa" has already been performed in Romania, Moldova, France, Russia and Germany. Romanian theatre critic Mirella Nedelcu-Patureau asks where the anger expressed by the play's protagonist comes from: "Why does she have the urgent need to insult what was once a shining dream amidst the misery of everyday life and was unattainable for so long?... In the ex-Soviet republic of Moldova everything has the colour 'of shit,' the protagonist of Esinencu's play proclaims. While all of a sudden a Europe of plenty makes inroads into the dreary routine of life in Moldova, a sense of growing disappointment begins to spread among the new generation that at first was so eager to discover the pleasures of the longed-for consumer society... Theatre and our European society need this kind of text, this kind of revolt, this cynical cursing filled with teeth-gnashing black humour that, like in ancient myths, whips up the waves of an indifferent ocean."
