Lost in Transition
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Lost in Transition looks at Romanias decretei: children born as a result of Ceausescus 770 Decree that forbade contraception and abortions. These children, Romanian citizens, lived through numerous transitions: from communism to democracy, from trying to make a home in Romania to making a home abroad, from highly-skilled to illegal and un-skilled labour, from speaking Romanian to dreaming in English. More than one million decretei have emigrated from Romania in search of a better life. This is the story of one in many. Developed with the support of Arches Live.
