First episode of the BRAND NEW SEASON. This piece was only broadcast on RTL on Sunday 16 September. Directed by: Jacques Molitor
When Oana finishes her working day in a Kirchberg financial firm, another world awaits her. Her everyday routine makes way for being on stage. Along with several other expats, she has founded a stand-up comedy troupe which regularly appears in city bars. They provoke laughs about anything: men or romantic relationships in general, or life as an expat in Luxembourg. Laughter which leads to some reflection and which holds up a satirical mirror to our society. For the young Romanian, these performances are also way of building up her sense of self, and to forge a new identity in her adoptive country.
