41st International Theater Festival in Venice

Are you ready? The International Theater Festival will be held in Venice from 10th to 16th October 2011 within the framework of Venice Biennale.

It’s a kind of festival-workshop. The newly-appointed Catalan director Àlex Rigola has imagined the festival as an “agora of theatre”, inviting the leading personalities on the international scene –directors, choreographers, artists, architects and set designers, experts in video-writing and lighting creators – to make Venice and the Biennale not only a stage for the presentation of performances, but also and above all a place for meeting, learning, practical training and for debate on the dramatic arts at the international level, involving audiences and professionals from the world over for a deeper reflection on what it means to do theatre today.

Workshops, some of which will produce a public result, lectures, meetings and round-table discussions – with an average of 5 appointments per day for a total of over 40 events – will be included in the schedule of performances and become an essential part of the Festival.
