The 14th TESZT is on its way

The Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre in Timisoara will organise the 14th edition of the Euroregional  Theatre Festival TESZT during May 21st-28th. Indoor and outdoor performances from 15 countries will be presented at TESZT, which belongs to the Official Programme Timișoara – 2023 European Capital of Culture.

TESZT, one of the region’s most important cultural events, has finalized this year’s main programme. This edition’s theme is the generic FLUID, chosen by the curators and festival team to express theatre’s and human nature’s impressive strength in adapting to most difficult times and circumstances, matching new forms and expression genres, in order to fill them with meaning and the ineffable. Performances of most diverse artistic types, with sensitive themes, gather in this fluid puzzle of a transforming contemporary world, the TESZT of a new sensibility.

The audience will have the pleasure of watching performances produced  by Kosztolányi Dezső Theatre from Subotica (Serbia), Euripides Laskaridis (Greece), Szene 2wei (Germany), Via Negativa (Slovenia), Teatro dei Venti (Italy), CIE Belova Iacobelli (Belgium-Chile), Zsófi Rebeka Kozma (Hungary), Regional Creative Atelier Kanjiža (Serbia), Mikolt Tózsa (Hungary), Serbian National Theatre from Novi Sad (Serbia) – in coproduction with City Drama Theatre Gavella (Croatia), Sarajevo National Theatre and MESS (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Teatr a Part Katowice (Poland), Artopia Skopje (Northern Macedonia), Szántusz Noémi Noya (Hungary), Det Flyvende Teater (Denmark), imPerfect Dancers (Italy), Trafó (Hungary), Ivo Dimchev (Bulgaria), Kristóf Szabó F.A.C.E. Visual Performing Arts (Germany), as well as the Csiky Gergely Hungarian State Theatre in Timișoara. All foreign performances will be presented in Timișoara for the first time.

An important TESZT component will be, as it was at prior editions, the extension dedicated to local independent theatre, which will include productions by Arte-Factum Theatre Company, Auăleu Theatre and Basca Theatre.

Thanks to the festival’s presence in the 2023 BidBook, another addition will be the Fluid Views section, co-curated with the local Identity. Education organisation, which will include three performances about themes of the LGBTQIA+ community. We will announce them shortly.

The festival programme will also feature a jazz concert and a rock concert, an exhibition dedicated to Hungarian author Madách Imre, marking 200 years from his birth, and a scenography exhibition.
