About us

textextract is a project to promote Romanian dramatic works abroad, launched as a program of artextract Association in 2009.

textextract has as a primary goal to build up a database of Romanian dramatic texts and translations to be made available to all those concerned. Thus it facilitates access by foreign stage directors to contemporary Romanian plays and encourages new translations; at the same time, to those who are interested in staging these plays it is a guide in establishing direct contact to obtain staging rights.

textextract wants to be an active promoter of Romanian dramatic texts and authors, by keeping a permanent contact with interested translators and directors, giving presentations at major festivals of contemporary drama worldwide, setting up partnerships with organizations whose principal objective is disseminating contemporary drama.
