TESZT, the Euroregional Theatre Festival Timișoara, Romania is an international festival that has been organised annually since 2008. The event aims to promote multiculturalism, works as a platform for cultural exchange and also as an invitation to dialogue with the artists and other professionals from the Eastern European and Balkan region.
This year we would like to broaden our selection process, thus together with the Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre we launch a call for applications for works within the field of theatre and performing arts. Our aim is to continue the Festival’s tradition that emphasises on encounters and sharing, be it between makers and the audience, acclaimed professionals and emerging artists, geographical or social regions and their different aesthetics. We pay special attention to performances produced in the region (Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, etc.), to artistic projects that are aesthetically and/or content-wise intriguing and to emerging artists.
