We belive that tangent is the perfect word for us because it describes in a relevant, expressive and polysemantic way our essential goals, features, aesthetics, activities and creations.

But how did we find it?

The name of our company is a Romanian acronym that stands for

the young generation over by the theatre.

*tânăra generație de pe lângă teatru*

This acronym was discovered by Andreea Ciocîrlan, the artistic head of tangent, in an attempt to ironically criticize a highly bad review she read about one of her theatre performances.

Long story short, in that critique, almost each dysfunctional mean of theatre construction pointed out by the reviewer, after attending the performance, was not addressed personally to the director of the piece or to any other person of the creative team, but rather to this mischievous, inconsistent and incapable gang of young theatre makers, stereotypically labelled as „the young theatre generation” who is guilty for creating and promoting a new wave of low quality theatre shows in Romania.

Besides being a funny-silly story, this kind of superficial attitude of some of the Romanian theatre critics is revealing a lack of accurate judgements. It also perpetuates a false image about the contemporary young creators and this wrong pattern has a huge impact in how emergent artists are perceived by the professional guilds and, most importantly, by the general audience.

Despite everything, if these negative and incorrect feedbacks are received and handled in a positive manner, they can sometimes become a huge source of inspiration. After all, the name of our company may have never been tangent
