Tbilisi International Festival Of Theatre, Call for Participation - NEW 2017


Dear Friends,

The next edition of TBILISI INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF THEATRE will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia from September 15 – 30, 2017 and after 6 successful years of the program NEW we are opening up the doors to its 7th edition.
And we announce the program every year with great anticipation of new works, discoveries and possibilities for Festival and for Artists.

NEW is an integral part of our International Programme.
NEW!  is for artists who want to take risks and challenge new audiences.
It is a voyage of discovery, an adventure for your artistic concepts

TBILISI INTERNATIONAL   runs every year by the end of September, beginning of October and is one of the major events in International life of Georgia and Black Sea Region.
The festival’s reputation has been built on the quality of its program, with the selected works of major international directors and companies from all over the world. This was the frame for the Festival for first two years since foundation.  But in search of theatre and artists, that were beyond our focus and knowledge, we decided to resize the frames, rethink the idea and as a result the Festival presented program “NEW”, first in 2011.
Since then -  we hosted several companies from different places of world -  the wonderful works and artists from Israel, Poland, Lithuania, Argentina, Romania, Germany, Finland, Russia, India, Denmark, Slovenia, Armenia, South Korea, Azerbaijan, Norway, Hungary made the idea of NEW successful. 
“NEW” is getting more and more popular. We receive more than 500 applications for program each year and the request is increasing.
In 2015 the Georgian Theatre Critics Association decided to name the best performance of the program.  “On the Desperate Edge of Now” - a performance from Norway became the first company with prize from Festival and from Georgian Theatre Critics Association. 2017 will be the next year for the selection of the best performance “NEW 2017”.
