Nu Nu means No No.

Nu Nu Theatre is an experimental theatre company based in Bristol, in the UK – established in 2012. Our company is focused on working with professional performers who perform in a non-native language. Our aesthetic vision is realised using a working technique which we naively call the ‘childlike approach’ to theatre making. The company’s founders – Mihai Florea and Ileana Gherghina – are both Romanian theatre professionals, with research degrees in Theatre Studies in the UK. We co-run CASL (Centre for Actors in a Second Language) – an online platform for research and dialogue on second language performing. We have been joined by a new collaborator – musician/composer Daniel Linker Saravia – PhD in music composition and winner of the Spaziomusica prize in Milan, Italy, 2013. Our first production – Experiment Ionesco– has received great feedback and is being presented at festivals in the UK (Accidental Festival, The Roundhouse, London; Stroud Festival; Inside Arts Festival). Our newest project – Billie Killer – has won funding from the Arts Council England and we have presented in LAPSody Festival of Live Art and Performance, organised by the University of Arts, Helsinki and also in the international arts centre Arnolfini, in Bristol, UK.

The company has been established to function as a platform for our artistic ideas. Each of us has various roles. Ileana takes on the role of director and scenographer, for which she has specialised during her MA course and Bogdan does the writing and/or adaptation.
