Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin - BEÁTA Route


Help the former typist BEÁTA find out why her lover JÁNOS, a former doorman has signed up for the mysterious Game of Life at Lela's secret party.  You can also see Beáta and János in The Parallel City: Fabric, the second part of The Parallel City Trilogy. 

For the party:

1. Dress funky! And include at least one pink or blue item in your costume. 

2. Wear super comfortable shoes! You'll have to walk, in some cases, around 500 meters. You'll also be climbing stairs, and moving through space. Leave the heels at home. Our party is uber-casual. 

3. Come with a charged phone. And a pair of headphones, if it’s possible. You'll have QR codes to scan giving you access to an audio story. We don't provide phones, that would be really lame.

4. You can take photos, make Insta stories, TikToks, and any other type of social media content you wish. We're not a boring theater. You have freedom! Just tag us @orasulparalel.

The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin concludes the Parallel City trilogy created by director Ana Mărgineanu and playwright Peca Ștefan. An immersive theatrical wonderland, The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin invites multiple viewings, with audiences able to choose one of 5 available performative routes at every performance. Each route features one or more characters: parallelian Lela, police colonel Edgár (one of the secondary characters in The Parallel City: Iosefin), former typist Beáta (one of the secondary characters in The Parallel City: Fabric), deaf influencer XO, or Lela’s Crew members for the Portal route. Participants will also be able to explore and experience several attractions: The Game of Life (playable by up to 6 players), The Tent of Secrets (which offers puppet theatre for a limited audience), The Labyrinth of Mirrors, The Forest of Whispers, The Well of Time, The Ocean of Continuity and The Realm of Wishes. 

The Parallel City: Party in Elisabetin also offers the public a non-performative route, The Parallelian from Elisabetin, featuring audio recordings of real and fascinating stories told by residents of the neighborhood. This route will be launched in September and it will be free and open 24/7.
