"Capturing Carpathia" by George Butler Monday 27 October 2014, London

Global Heritage Fund UK with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute in London opened today the exhibition 
"Capturing Carpathia" by George Butler. 

On display is an exhibition of drawings that illustrate life in the Carpathian Villages of Transylvania , exploring portraits and scenes of daily life of rural Romania.

"I know all the names of all the people I drew; I know where they live; they know who I am. It's personal and I hope all of those things come across in the images", says the artist George Butler. 
The caracters become animated on incredibile light and details of the artist inspiration. For a moment you expect to hear music of the forest or the cristal wisper of the source going down in the valey. A remarkable deep view , just enough to feel again home. 
To complete the serie of All Romanian events there are 2 more occasion to explore the riche expression of Romanian life :

Octobwr 2014 -Dracula comes to Custom House, Canning Town & Beckton Libraries !

One of the dimensions where Romania sometimes suffers from British fantasies and mis-information is the Victorian melodrama by Bram Stoker of "Dracula", which was fictionally linked to Transylvania and extremely loosely based on your medieval warrior king Vlad. So "Dracula" and Gothic melodrama is ever associated with Romania by many British.

In order for you and your families to see for yourselves an example of a modern British theatrical interpretation of "Dracula" which seems to be considered as appropriate for the upcoming Haloween period, I attach details of performances that are being put on in three Newham Libraries ( see attached and below ) during the week before and during half-term coming up.

Let me know if you might be interested in attending with your families and whether you have a firm preference for one date/ venue in particular. As there are not lots of tickets for each performance being held in Libraries, it is probably necessary to book immediately.

In the meantime, I am trying to find out if there are any references to King Vlad, Transylvania or Romania in the play. If so, it might be justified for you to turn up in national dress and throw eggs and tomatoes at the actors in our Shakespearian tradition.

Kind regards,    Martin
