OPEN CALL for applications: TESZT 2018

TESZT, the Euroregional Theatre Festival Timișoara, Romania is an international festival that has been organised annually since 2008. The event aims to promote multiculturalism, works as a platform for cultural exchange and also as an invitation to dialogue with the artists and other professionals from the Eastern European and Balkan region.

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.

Powerful Messages Keep Rolling

In my opinion, having a mere poem, in this case it being an old "dusty" sonnet, and turning it into a visual action-full work of art can be a dreadful operation and not many would venture into doing it. Nevertheless, the writer of the script for this play not only had brains to do it so incredible and accessible to an impressive variety of people, but also ingeniously adapted it to the times we live in today, which made me realise how little the world around us changes no matter how many wars and peace treaties we go through.
