7 – 13 June 2021

The ETC International Theatre Conferences are an opportunity for ETC Members and selected guests to explore new trends in European theatre, and a forum for exchange, debate and networking. This year’s conference will focus on freedom of artistic expression and new writing, and a key element will be the ENGAGE Festival, on 10th June, featuring the English language-premiere of new texts by the authors Patty Kim Hamilton, Casper Vanderputte and Ondřej Novotný. Alongside the Young Europe Festival, To:gather, these events constitute ETC’s week-long celebration of new writing: The Week of New European Drama.
