6th Festival

Slovak National Theatre

07 14 June 2019

"Limits" is the overriding theme of this 6th edition of the international theatre festival, which shall be dedicated to drama.

Limits shall be explored in their widest connotation: Limits that keep on expanding, and those that grow narrower. Limits positive and negative. Mental and existential limits in an individual, family and wider community, or even the entire civilisation. Despite the professed freedom and democracy in our cultural and social space or – if you wish – in the Western world, the number of actual and virtual limits keeps on growing. Some of the changing limits are part of a series of new impulses and circumstances in the rapidly changing world. In the spirit of these shifts and experiments with our shifts, contemporary theatre, too, explores and tests its limits either by testing the extent of its potential and the degree of its effect on audiences, or by examining the limits of production potential in connection with content as well as the form of contemporary theatre as art.

This year, the festival is pleased to welcome the National Theatre Prague and the VOSTO5 Theatre (Czech Republic), Kurt Hentschläger (Austria), TR Warsaw (Poland), Radnóti Theatre (Hungary), Fortebraccio Theatre (Italy), Staatsschauspiel Dresden (Germany) and more, including performances from home stages.

The festival programme is enriched with masterclasses of artists, discussions, presentations, creative and working meetings. It will take place from 7 to 14 June 2019 Slovak National Theatre, Bratislava.
