For hundreds of years, 12 other ethnic groups - Swabians, Hungarians, Serbs, Bulgarians, Croats, Roma, Ukrainians, Slovaks, Czechs, Armenians, Italians, Jews - live peacefully in the area of Timișoara and Banat, alongside Romanians.
This is their story - the first Remix ID show that brings together the material documented for more than 5 years from almost all the ethnic communities in the Timiş area and reinterpreted by contemporary artists - interviews, music, gastronomy, dances, traditions, even sewing techniques folk costumes, life stories, tragic testimonies from distant and recent history.
Using the fusion of old and new, rural and urban, classical and contemporary choreography, the script of the Remix ID show reveals its story through dance and projections. It is the perennial story of the one who strives for change, gets lost in the maelstrom of the unknown and then finds and is reborn both from the roots of the past and from the experience of the present.
The composition of the show reflects this melange of old and new, as it brings together old, traditional dances, but also contemporary choreography, alongside projections and music from the freshest contemporary artists
