Horațiu Mălăele, performing at TIFF

The incomparable Horațiu Mălăele returns with a new display of ingenuity in "Sunt un orb", on Saturday, June 17, starting at 19:00, at Cinema Florin Piersic.

Described by Ion Caramitru as possibly the best product of Romanian theater in the past 20 years, Mălăele captivates the audience with the novelty he brings to the stage in each performance. Full of humor and grace, the artist presents the meanings of poets who are so different in style and thinking, in his own unique style, to the audience.

The show "Sunt un orb" stands out with its comedic aspect of presenting high-quality poetry and short stories. "There are several elements that make up this show, which is about me, but it's also about you," says Horațiu Mălăele. Additionally, the moments of improvisation are not to be missed, as Mălăele warns the spectators of the "danger of bursting into laughter."
