Roşia Montană is a mining village, the oldest European locality involved in the exploitation of precious metals. Eighteen years ago a Romanian-Canadian company planned the largest gold exploitation in Europe, with cyanide procedure. Environmentalists won the battle against the company in 2015: Roşia Montană is safe, but something has irremediably changed.
Harry Wilson works in Glasgow, as a director in the field of theatre research. In July 2015, in Siena, thanks to the project Playing Identities, his artistic career became linked with that of four drama students at Babes Bolyai University, in Cluj. Together, they used theatre as a tool to investigate the discrepancies in what happened in Roşia Montană.
