European Festival of Performing Arts Timisoara - New Romanian Drama Festival
The European Festival of Performing Arts Timisoara – New Romanian Drama Festival is a yearly 9 day festival that carries on in a fresh, contemporary manner the bold tradition of a festival formula initiated 30 years ago. It is organized by the Timişoara National Theatre with the financial support of the Romanian Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. It mainly aims to place the Romanian theatrical phenomenon inside the European one as an integral part, in the spirit of unity in diversity. FEST-FDR is thus structured as to include two parallel components: a Romanian and an international one, represented equally in the programming. The former showcases the best of Romanian theatre, an integrated part of European culture yet to be explored. FEST-FDR is actually the only platform dedicated to contemporary Romanian drama and theatre, placed in a global context through the presence of a jury to award the best performance. Surprising points of view, local twist given to universal themes and Romanian artists of international acclaim are a few of the arguments that make the line-up of FEST-FDR a must-see. The festival reunites performances that give voice to relevant themes of the 21st century, consistent to the idea that theatre and society are indissolubly connected.
This festival has been an EFA member since 2012.
