Setkání/Encounter 2018



The International Festival of Theatre Schools SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER  is an annual event that takes place at the end of March and the beginning of April. During 5 days, the 27th year will be  held from the 28th of March to the 1st of April 2017. The festival focuses on talented young  performers from art academies or universities from all around the world. It gives themthe opportunity to meet their student colleagues and also meet the professionals from theatre field from different parts of the world.

They can inspire and get to know each other during the festival and it is one of the greatest  benefits of the project. The festival has changed a lot during the 26 years of its existence. The  most significant change has been the transformation from a competitive festival to a non- competitive event. This change has more supported the main idea of the festival: to create the place for meeting, inspiration, and discussion between theatre performers and artists.
