11 February 2016

Tbilisi International Festival of Theatre introduced the GEORGIAN SHOWCASE in 2009 with the aim to promote Georgian theatre and its integration in the global cultural scene. The GEORGIAN SHOWCASE is one of the most important theatre platforms for international exchanges. It is an opportunity for Georgian theatre companies and artists to build new relationships, create co-productions, tour and exchange artists. For international guests it is a chance to discov new possibilities for their programming and future plans.

The GEORGIAN SHOWCASE prorgamme brings together theatre, new writing; movement and contemporary dance – in short, new experiences and creative forms of making theatre. Annually, the festival presents a selection of various and most recent performances from the capital – Tbilisi – and the region.

The programme consists of two parts the Main Programme and the Off Programme. Performances in the Main Programme are carefully selected by the Georgian Section of International Critics’ Association.

The GEORGIAN SHOWCASE is open for festival and theatre managers, critics, programmers, journalists, reviewers, curators, potential co-producer and artists – anyone interested in new experience will be welcomed to the showcase. For four days in autumn, during the Golden season, the best performance companies from across Georgia are showcased. During these days Tbilisi becomes the largest platform for networking. It will allow you to start conversations, renew relationships and discover new ideas with guests and participants.

Deadline to be announced soon!
