Artiz Theatre Company
We are an independent, experimental and immersive arts company. Founded in 2018 by actress/director Iza-Florina Porumbu, the company is now introducing performative and engaging art in diverse domains such as tourism, education and self-development training. Our productions include: „Dracula and his terrifying family”, „Male Cabaret Show”, and „Bilingual Acting Courses”. Artiz Theatre Company began its journey with the collaborative curiosity of bringing life into medieval touristic attractions such as Bran Castle or the City Center of Brasov. As the founder of Artiz, I believe that art plays an important role in human development. I have always been in a continuous search of artistic knowledge, therefore I have been part of many courses and trainings such as: Bachelors of Arts Degree, Theatre and Performance Practice – London Metropolitan University, Bilingual Method Acting Workshops – Paris, Performer&Workshop leader, Arezzo Theatre Festival – Italy.
Bilingual acting course
Our work in 2020 started off with new projects. „Bilingual Acting Course” and „Bilingual Acting Weekend Getaway” are practical journeys through multicultural theatrical methods, exercises and games. The teaching method is interactive, dynamic and experimental. Our mission is to guide you to your inner artist through self-development and self-knowledge techniques in order to achieve competences and abilities such as public speaking, problem-solving through creativity, self confidence, acting skills and many more.
„Dracula events” includes performative tours of touristic attractions, interractive dinners, and thrilling treasure hunts. The activities are inspired from my 10 years of practical learning of theatrical arts, starting from theatre practitioners I have met, acting/directing workshops, theatre festivals and the courses during my Batchelors of Arts Degree.

The aim of the performance was to bring life to the Castle, by interacting with the audience, with characters such as: Dracula, Katharina – his mistress, The Count’s Mother, The Torturer, Radu the Handsome – his brother and The Bloody Doctor.
When we are not performing, running workshops and courses or developing new ideas, we like to attend cultural events together, travel the world, participate in international projects, experience new and exciting events. Personally, I am a passionate about foreign languages and I am currently studying Italian and Portuguese.
