The Euroregional Theatre Festival Timișoara - TESZT, Romania, is an international festival which has been organised since 2008 by the Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre in Timisoara. 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 Europe, with special attention to the Balkan region. You can find more information about previous editions at:

The 14th edition will be organized during May 21st-28th 2023 and belongs to the official Timisoara-European Capital Culture 2023 programme. We are looking mainly for flexible productions, with minimal technical requirements, adaptable for diverse indoor and outdoor spaces. TESZT is mainly focused on new theatre aesthetics, contemporary writers, alternative and new forms of performing arts.
