This panel seeks to find 3-4 strong proposals that would talk about the varied themes of international interest that emerge out of Visniec’s critically acclaimed plays. The political and the social are always strong points of interest as explored by the characters’ dynamic dialogues. Born in Romania, Visniec now lives in France, but his plays are performed internationally. He connects with audiences globally and that is proof of his exquisite writing. The panel also seeks to discuss how theater and performance are much needed in today’s conflicting and violent international context, and how the stage becomes an international platform where we are more than passive members, but instead are transformed by the spectacle. 

This is a guaranteed panel at the MLA 2019. Send proposals (500 words) and bios (150 words) to Dr. Florescu at fflorescu@pace.edu no mater than March 15th.
