The international environment on the festival  ▴  Sharing experience

This year we come with an innovation which extends the platform of the festival SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER. We are creating a five-day creative workshop, which is intended for the students of theater faculties from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland.
The lecturer of this workshop is Attila Antal - Theatre and Film Director, Composer, Author. Our goal is to reflect the theme of the festival "SETKÁNÍ Léčí / Regenerate with ENCOUNTER"  in the WORKSHOP | SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER which represents the very culmination of the festival. We perceive the workshop as a meeting space for students of theater schools, giving inspiration and sharing experiences across students and teachers.

The presentation of the outcome of this five-day workshop will be a short performance - scenic attendance - expressing the theme "SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER has healed us". This output is part of the final ceremony of the festival, which will take place at Theatre Goose On The String on the 6th of April 2019!
