Cancellation of TESZT #13

Cancellation of TESZT #13

While supporting continuity of cultural events, especially regarding the theatre scene and especially in Timisoara, we do want to fully enjoy TESZT and its unique energy at the right moment. The present times are not in favour of theatre – Romania, as much as the entire world, is focusing all its energy in order to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are, actually, in a time when our entire attention should be channeled towards keeping us and our dear ones healthy. The theatre in which we believe in – brave, different, stimulating – will have its applause more than tenfold at TESZT 2021. We will be waiting.

HalfTESZT – budget cuts will reduce the program of the festival starting in ten days

The Euroregional Theatre Festival Timisoara – TESZT, has reached its 12th edition and has to considerably restrain its initial programme after the Local City Council voted on the budget of Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre Timisoara. In order to maintain the continuity of the festival and preserve our relationship with spectators who believe in the TESZT spirit, we will organize a pocket-version of TESZT between the 20-26th of May, a crash tes(z)t, with damaged lights on.
