The aim of my PhD-project is to study Henrik Ibsen’s reception in the Romanian theatre from 1894 until today. The main directions I focus on are the historical and chronological display of the stagings, the international theatrical context that influenced Ibsen’s Romanian theatre reception as well as contributions of the most important Romanian actors, directors and translators who promoted Ibsen’s plays.

Besides classic theatre historiography research tools, the project is enriched by a Digital Humanities approach, using IbsenStage Performance Database as the main reference point.
