Esen]` de cire[ înflorit

D

ac` m-a[ fi aflat în Japonia în aceast` perioad`, sau chiar la Washington, ori în Elve]ia cea cosmopolit` a[ fi fost îndrumat s` particip neap`rat la s`rb`toarea cire[ului înflorit, care bucur` an de an privirea [i sufletele numero[ilor turi[ti, pe lâng` sufletele localnicilor, cei care au ini]iat de fapt s`rb`toarea. Dar în ultima vreme, de vreo trei ani... m` simt tot mai mult turist în ]ara mea pentru c` nu contenesc s` m` minunez de ceea ce-mi v`d ochii aici zi de zi. Politica r`mâne nelipsit` din realitatea româneasc` contemporan`, de[i nu ne-a adus mari realiz`ri [i bucurii, nici m`car în ultima perioad`. Chiar dac` am dep`[it anul electoral, înc` n-am înv`]at c` de[i nu am primit mare lucru, ni se cere deja înzecit înapoi. Cu toate astea multe rude sau prieteni ai mei nu reu[esc s` se dezlipeasc` de ecranul televizorului, în special de emisiunile politice. Aproape c` nu exist` familie în care s` nu existe discu]ii pe aceast` tem`.

GabrielARSENE Fie so]ia vrea film, iar so]ul politic`, fie so]ul vrea meci, iar so]ia politic`! Politica intervine din nou chiar [i în turismul românesc, domeniu aproape deloc sprijinit guvernamental de aproape 30 de ani, dar exploatat politic pentru c`, nu-i a[a (?), d` bine la imagine, chiar [i când spui prostii... Noroc de aceast` prim`var`, chiar [i întârziat`, în care am sc`pat de frig [i de z`pad`, dar în care mul]i vom uita s` privim cire[ul înflorit, sau dac` îl vom privi nu vom reu[i s` vedem esen]a lui, noul ciclu al vie]ii în irupere odat` cu triumful soarelui asupra nop]ii. Iar`[i trebuie s` mul]umim lui Dumnezeu (cui altcuiva?), cei care mai avem rude sau case la ] ar`, [i ]`rani, care ne mai trezesc la via]`. Îi vizit`m înainte de Pa[ti sperând s` ob]inem o bucat` dintr-un miel crescut eco (!), sau m`car câteva felii de brânz` proasp`t`, tot eco, [i afl`m de la ei c` vi]a a înmugurit, cire[ii [i merii au înflorit, iar ceapa [i salata sunt r`s`rite [i cresc! Nu mai pricepem întotdeauna

vorbele astea semn c` ne am îndep`rtat de sat prea mult, dar ne bucur`m pe moment de bucuria rudelor noastre. Ne-aducem curând aminte c` am auzit tot la televizor despre modesta cre[tere economic` de anul trecut, care ar fi putut fi substan]ial`, dac` agricultur... Abia acum realiz`m din nou c` agricultura este [i asta în care vi] a înmugure[te, cire[ii [i merii înfloresc, iar ceapa [i salata r`sar [i cresc! Tumultul ora[ului ne-a dep`rtat prea mult de natur` [i de simplitatea ei, iar un weekend la munte nu e de ajuns c` s` ne readuc` la normal. O vizit` la rudele de la ]ar` înainte de Pa[ti este mult mai util`! Afl`m astfel c` se poate tr`i [i cu mai pu]in` politic` televizat`, pentru c` ]`ranul român [tie c` fie ceva r`u (de cele mai multe ori), ori bun, atunci când este realitate se simte în propriul portofel! Iat` c` am ajuns, ca la Tokyo sau Washington, tot la esen]a cire[ului înflorit! Si nu trebuie s` ne deplas`m a[a de departe, esen]a asta este [i aici!

Cezar merge la Eurovision 2013! Cezar a câ[tigat finala Eurovision România 2013, dup` ce a ob]inut cele mai multe puncte în urma cumul`rii votului publicului [i al juriului, în show-ul transmis pe 9 martie în direct la TVR 1, TVR HD, TVR Interna]ional [i online, pe www.tvrplus.ro, eurovision. tvr.ro [i www.eurovision.tv.

Cezar Ouatu, prin vocea sa, a[ezat` de compozi]ia lui Cristian Faur, nu are decât dou` op]iuni: s` duc` România în final` [i apoi foarte sus”.

La încheierea lucr`rilor, TNB va avea [ase s`li, plus s`li de repeti]ie, un amfiteatru, bibliotec`, cafenele, o teras`. Vor fi patru intr`ri pentru public. Parcarea din partea laterala a cl`dirii va fi o zon` pietonal`. Potrivit lui Romeo Belea, arhitectul întregului proiect de la TNB, atunci când lucr`rile se vor finisa aceasta va fi cea mai complex` construc]ie de teatru din lume, neexistând în prezent nic`ieri a[a ceva. În condi]iile „vitrege”, TNB a scos totu[i premiere, iar programul de anul trecut dedicat lui I.L.Caragiale, patronul teatrului, a fost unul de mare succes. În curând, pe scena S`lii Mari va fi prezentat` premiera spectacolului “Revizorul” de Gogol, în regia lui Felix Alexa, cu Marius Manole în rolul principal. Dup` ce Sala Mare va intra în renov`ri, spectacolul va fi mutat la Sala Studio.

Enescu, pe Otopeni Aproximativ 500.000 de persoane, care pleac`, sosesc sau tranziteaz` Aeroportul Interna]ional „Henri Coand`“ (Otopeni), pot s` se informeze despre edi]ia din 2013 a Festivalului Interna]ional George Enescu (1-28 septembrie), prin intermediul unei campanii derulate de firma ARTEXIM în parteneriat cu grupul Spectacular. În cadrul campaniei, spotul este difuzat pe 52 de ecrane orizontale digitale amplasate în zone-cheie ale aeroportului. Campania se va derula pân` pe 31 decembrie 2013, rolul ei fiind de a promova cel mai important eveniment cultural din România pentru publicul str`in [i român, atât ca atrac]ie pentru turi[ti, cât [i ca imagine pozitiv` de ]ar`, precum [i de a consolida noua identitate de brand a Festivalului.

”A[a cum Festivalul Interna]ional George Enescu este o u[` deschis` c`tre lume, care conecteaz` România la cele mai renumite circuite culturale interna] ionale, ne-am dorit ca imaginea Festivalului s` se vad` [i la principala poart` de intrare în România, Aeroportul Otopeni. Lans`m aceast` campanie acum – mai devreme decât am inten]ionat ini]ial – [i ca un r`spuns fa]` de impactul negativ pe care îl pot avea asupra imaginii României experien]ele celor care au probleme cu taxiurile la Otopeni, experien]e despre care s-a vorbit în ultima vreme intens. Noi nu putem organiza taxiurile, dar putem ar`ta c`l`torilor c` la noi exist` [i ceva bun: Festivalul George Enescu este poate cea mai credibil` carte de vizit` pe care o are România în exterior în acest moment. Este important a[adar s` scoatem în lume aceast` carte de vizit`, s` o ar`t`m, s` ne prezent`m cu ea [i s` nu mai l`s`m situa]ii nepl`cute s` ne reprezinte în exclusivitate. Festivalul Enescu spune multe lucruri adev`rate despre noi, românii, despre creativitatea [i spiritualitatea noastr`, despre patrimoniul nostru cultural [i tocmai de aceea este important s` îl facem vizibil, s` îl punem în lumin`”, spune Oana Marinescu, coordonatorul de PR al Festivalului Enescu. Spotul de promovare al festivalului este realizat în condi]ii video excep]ionale, de echipa de crea]ie a festivalului, Ioana Gheorghiu [i Robert Blaj, în dou` versiuni, în limba englez` [i în limba francez`, [i are ca

Guest Lecture @Pavilion • Swel Noury – Morocco: To be faithful or not? Stakes and limits of film adaptation Every time when it is mentioned the link between literature and cinema, the most relevant part of the problem seems to be the adaptation. Is it faithful or not to the book? It is a difficult question because there are several forms of adaptations. It is introduced the concept of loyalty to figure out what screenwriters try to do every time they work on adapting books. Swel Noury will try to define the boundaries of adaptation through the movie The Man Who Sold the World. Based on Dostoyevsky’s short story A Weak Heart, The Man Who Sold the World unfolds as a literary and metaphysical tale of a young clerk, inept to cope with his inner turmoil. As he cannot accept the joy the marriage with a beautiful cabaret performer renders, the protagonist descends into a mental state of delirium and psychosis. Said Bey’s award-winning lead is a staggering demonstration of multi-facetted acting. His feverish appearance is hauntingly captured in painterly influenced wide-lens cinematography, intriguing sound design and a tentative narrative, which seem to confuse not only the film’s declining hero. Set in an anonymous, post-apocalyptic landscape, with a theme reminiscent of Camus, Kafka and Orwell, the film explores the individual’s vulnerability in an autocratic society where love and tolerance are scarce. Swel Noury is a writer, director and photographer, the son of Hakim Noury, a famous Moroccan film director and Pilar Cazorla, a Spanish producer. Borned in Morocco and based in Barcelona, he co-directs his movies with his brother Imad.

Statuia Libert`]ii se redeschide pe 4 iulie Deja este oficial, Statuia Libert`]ii se redeschide pentru vizitare pe 4 iulie, la peste nou` luni dup` lovitura primit` de la uraganul Sandy.

Dar redeschiderea Lady Liberty pentru sezonul turistic de var` nu are numai o importan]` simbolic`, fiind chiar o binefacere pentru economia ora[ului New York. Statuia nu a fost practic v`t`mat` de uragan atunci când acesta a lovit, la sfâr[itul lunii octombrie, dar deterior`rile serioase ale restului insulei au dus la decizia închiderii ei pentru vizitatori. Practic, 75 % din Liberty Island a fost sub ape, iar aproape întreaga infrastructur` a insulei a fost distrus` de apele oceanului care au dep`[it 2 metri în multe zone ale celor 5 hectare ale insulei. Mul]i americani a[teptau o redeschidere mai rapid`, deoarece fiecare zi cost` New York, prin veniturile neîncasate din turism [i pentru locurile de munc` ale celor care lucrau pe Liberty Island [i vecina Ellis Island. Dar Congresul american a avut nevoie de 91 zile, dup` ce super-furtuna a lovit, pentru a vota un pachet de sprijin în valoare de 50,5 miliarde dolari. Aproape 60 de milioane USD vor merge la repararea parcurilor na]ionale ale ]`rii, inclusiv în Liberty Island. Reconstruirea facilit`]ilor distruse vizeaz` viitorul, astfel încât urm`toarea furtun` s` nu mai aib` acela[i impact devastator.

Cartea junglei, la Ion Creang` Publicul mic se poate bucura de spectacolul „Cartea junglei”, produs, de curând, de Teatrul „Ion Creang`”. Reprezenta]iile au loc la sala Rapsodia de pe str.

Inedit pe scena teatrului pentru copii este faptul c` în rolul prin]ului junglei joac`, alternativ, Liliana Donici, actri]` a Teatrului „Ion Creang`” [i Maxim Donici, fiul ei de doar 11 ani. „Când am ales s` dramatizez “Cartea junglei”, am [tiut c` pornesc pe un drum dificil, lansându-m` într-o confruntare periculoas` cu celebritatea povestirilor scrise de Rudyard Kipling. Când în con[tiin]a publicului, în special a copiilor, s-a înr`d`cinat o

versiune atât de bine realizat` a “C`r]ii junglei”, încercarea de a impune universul lui Kipling prin intermediul unui spectacol de teatru devine o imens` provocare. ªi ce este mai motivant în munca de crea]ie, decât un text mare care-[i revendic` o via]` scenic` pe m`sur`? Cu ajutorul talentatei echipe de arti[ti [i tehnicieni ai teatrului, am readus la via]`, din pagina c`r]ii, povestea spectaculoas` [i tulbur`toare a b`ie] elului crescut de animalele s`lbatice în adâncul junglelor din India. Este un spectacol care reu[e[te s` se desprind` de trena renumelui interna]ional al pove[tii, impunându-[i propria sa lume [i atmosfer`, [i pe care doresc s` îl dedic memoriei maestrului Cornel Todea, regizor [i fost director al Teatrului Ion Creang`”, declar` regizorul Octavian Jighirgiu.

Aegean Airlines sprijin` turismul grecesc • 158 de rute interna]ionale de la 8 baze opera]ionale din Grecia [i Cipru Aegean Airlines, membru al Star Alliance [i pilon important al turismului [i economiei grece[ti, a lansat noul program de zbor pentru 2013, program care adaug` 29 de rute interna]ionale, de pe 12 aeroporturi, 8 dintre acestea func]ionând ca baze opera]ionale ale companiei.

Noile rute Aegean au fost anun]ate de managementul companiei într-o conferin]` de pres` organizat` la Heraklion, Creta, în prezen]a ministrului turismului, Olga Kefalogianni. Cele 8 baze de la care se fac zboruri interna]ionale sunt: Atena, Salonic, Heraklion, Rodos, Corfu, Kos, Kalamata [i Larnaca.

Grecia de nord la TTR 2013 Un expozant interesant la Târgul Interna]ional de turism al României, în condi] iile în care Grecia nu a avut un stand na]ional, a fost regiunea Macedoniei de est [i a Traciei, care a participat cu succes la TTR 2013, dup` cum am aflat de la oficialii acestei regiuni importante a Greciei. În timpul participarii la TTR, directorul de dezvoltare al regiunii Macedoniei de est [i Traciei, în acela[i timp [i subprefect, George Geromarkos, a organizat o conferin]` de pres`, la aceasta fiind prezent [i ministrul turismului din Macedonia [i Tracia, Theodorus Karaoglou. Cei doi au apreciat interesul tour-operatorilor români pentru regiunea de est a Macedoniei [i Traciei, ca de altfel [i interesul reprezentan]ilor din domeniul turismului românesc. Pe întreaga perioad` a târgului, George Geromarkos a avut contacte [i convorbiri cu reprezentan]ii ambasadei Greciei [i cu reprezentan]ii agen]iilor de turism care au vizitat standul Ministerului Macedoniei [i Traciei. Din partea regiunii, pentru marketingul diverselor zone, la standul de la TTR a avut loc o tragere la sor]i ce a vizat câ[tigarea unor scurte sejururi pentru turi[tii noroco[i. Astfel turi[tii vor intra în contact cu destina]iile din regiunea Macedoniei de est [i a Traciei [i cu ospitalitatea profesioni[tilor din domeniul turismului din zon`. Regiunea Macedoniei de est [i a Traciei continu` cu optimism programul de promovare turistic` al c`rui scop principal este înt`rirea colaborarii [i atragerea unui num`r cât mai mare de turi[ti din România. În cadrul conferin]ei de pres` s-a reamintit c` regiunea Macedoniei [i Traciei este cea mai apropiat` zon` a Greciei de România [i zona cu cele mai multe leg`turi istorice dintre cele dou` ]`ri! Din secolul 7 î.Ch. pân` în prezent în România exist` o popula]ie de greci care î[i p`streaz` tradi]iile, fiind mândri de istoria lor. În criza puternic` ce afecteaz` înc` Grecia se arat` prim`vara la propriu, pentru c` apropiindu-se vara grecii sunt din nou con[tien]i de poten]ialul lor turistic. În aceea[i direc]ie se îndreapt` [i zona Macedoniei de est [i a Thaciei, care încearc` s` atrag` cât mai mul]i turi[ti. Regiunea cuprinde jude]ele Kavala, Xanthi, Drama, Evros [i Rodopi [i dou` insule fascinante. Thasos [i Samotraki. Zona are importante monumente istorice, cu arhitectur` interesant`, dar [i peisaje naturale superbe, toate combinate cu tradi]ii [i obiceiuri locale foarte importante pentru turi[ti.

Zona este considerat` paradisul nordului m`rii Egee, cu insulele Thasos cea cosmopolit` [i Samotraki, dou` insule cu istorie [i natur` bogate, insule cu peisaje naturale care combin` marea [i muntele, istoria [i tradi] ia, care sunt un adev`rat paradis ecologic [i sunt baza activit`]ilor turistice alternative. Dar în zon` este [i ora[ul Kavala, cu peninsula Sf. Maria, ora[ul anticilor Filipous, cu teatrul antic, cu b`ile cu nisip de la Crinides, cu muntele Pagheon cu satele sale tradi]ionale, cu m`n`stirile [i cu delta râului Nestos. Sau Drama, cu apele de la Sf. Barbara, p`durea de la Elatia, pe[tera de la Maara... Xanthi, locul de na[tere al lui Democrit, cu portul Porta Lagos, lacul Vistonida [i Biserica Sf. Nicolae, satele unde locuie[te minoritatea Pomachilor, cascada lui Livaditis [i faimoasa p`dure Haidu. În jude]ul Rodopi exist` Monisinoupoli, iar în jude] ul Evros pute]i vizita p`durea ecoprotejat` Dadia, delta râului Evros, zona antic` din Mesimbria, una dintre cele mai vechi biserici - Sf. Maria la Feres, [i ora[ul bizantin Didimotiho, Ora[ul m`t`sii - Soufli [i Doxipara cu zona ei antic`. Doar vizitând aceast` zon` pute]i sim] i magia greac`, cu nenum`ratele plaje, de la Strimonas pân` la Evros. La începutul verii, în perioada 21-23 iunie, în Kavala va avea loc al treilea concurs Kavala AirSea Show cu aviatori acroba]i, para[uti[ti, concerte [i multe alte activit`]i, la care s-ar putea s` întâlni]i [i surprize, membri ai Aeroclubului României.
