The ODEON Theatre, one of Bucharest's leading theatre companies, was founded in 1946 as Giulesti Theatre. It is situated in the very heart of the city since 1974, in a historical monument building, which we celebrated its centenary in 2011. Moreover, the Majestic Hall of the theatre is the most elegant auditorium from Bucharest and one of the very few one in Europe with a sliding ceiling. In 1990, The Giulesti Theatre changed its name into Odeon Theatre. Odeon Gallery - theatre and contemporary art is designed both as a performance hall and is open to more artistic areas: photography, installations, film, music, etc. Odeon Gallery was designed by Razvan Luscov, PhD at the University of Architecture “Ion Mincu” in Bucharest, “as an underground world, in a mirror, opposite of the surface world. On the surface - a Romania where, unfortunately, good taste is measured in the quantity of granite, stainless and artificial plants. Here, the inverted world, where from the symbol of the hall - an actor dancer upside down - by inversion, the value is given by the simplicity and authenticity of the material that does not scream its price: exposed concrete, rusty steel, authentic materials and primary areas that trying to oppose and foodie gaudy opulence of many of today's construction” (Razvan Luscov).
