The Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre will organize the twelfth edition of the Euroregional Theatre Festival Timișoara – TESZT during May 19th-26th 2019, showcasing the best performances from the region as well as rest of Europe. More than half of this year’s selection comes from the open call launched by the festival for productions from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
More than 100 applications from the Balkans and Eastern Europe arrived during the last month for TESZT 2019. The TESZT team will start the evaluation process and contact the selected artists before February 15th 2019. Besides the performances submitted via our open call, the final programme will include other artists whose aesthetics and debated subjects match the festival’s profile. Save the date – the 12th TESZT will take place during 19th-26th of May 2019.
Due to bureaucratic reasons, related to (not) receiving the necessary visas in order to enter our country, the performance of Qendra Multimedia from Kosovo, scheduled for May 21st at 5 pm had to be cancelled. Ironically, ”a play with four actors...” deals precisely with complications regarding European paperwork, and the Hungarian Theatre in Timisoara considers that the performance at TESZT would have been a good opportunity for discussion.
