The American Dream now takes on a new form under this unique interpretation. The uniqueness of this universal language is determined by the freedom with which PAUL Cimpoieru uses alternate forms of performing arts (acting, movement, contemporary dance, martial arts) as vehicles to transmit ideas, experiences, and emotions. The images and symbols created have a special force that induces unique emotions.
Homo Americanus in fact, Homo Universalis, is telling the universal story of the dreamer-fighter-survivor hidden deep down inside of each of us. Homo Americanus is the first part of Paul's theater trilogy titled #ecceHOMO about the (contemporary) Human Condition. The shows speak the Language of the World (a universal theatrical mix of dance, theater, movements, and visuals) and go beyond the border of language and culture, and ethnicity. It is written and performed by Paul Cosma Cimpoieru and produced by the Two of Us Theater Company.
