The 10th TESZT to set off with an international coproduction

Schilling Árpád and the creators of EXIT tackle the topic of the emigrating immigrants 

The 10th edition of TESZT will start on May 21st. One of the most important missions of the festival is to promote the cultural exchange and to support collaboration among artists and theatres of the region. This is also what inspired the making of EXIT, the opening production of this year’s edition, a coproduction between the Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre of Timișoara, the Ioan Slavici Classical Theatre of Arad and the Sombor National Theatre. The performance is directed by Schilling Árpád, who was present at last year’s edition of TESZT with the performance The Day of Fury.

Panel discussions and further additional dates announced at TESZT festival

The 10th edition of TESZT starts next weekend, and it is preceded by great interest. As a result of the high demand, two additional dates have been added to the programme: the performances EXIT and Kálmán’s Day will both played two times.

Additional dates at TESZT

TESZT is just around the corner, with preparations in full swing and tickets selling fast. Because several studio performances are already sold out, but the demand is still high, the organisers have scheduled additional dates for some of the shows.

Do yourself a favour! – Workshop by Ivo Dimchev for developing solo performances at the TESZT festival

The choreographer and performance artist Ivo Dimchev, one of the returning guests of TESZT is known for breaking taboos in his provocative and boldly physical pieces. While his work blends performance art, dance, theatre, and visual art, Dimchev’s enormous musicality and his remarkable vocal gift are at the centre of each of his productions. The audience attending the festival will have the chance to see the world famous performer on May 28th, at the closing concert of TESZT, when he performs Songs from My Shows, presenting songs from his past performances.
