20th Edition of Festival of Union des Théâtres de l'Europe

Festival in Times of War


Festival in Times of War

Eleven production will be presented during in Cluj during the 20th edition of the UTE Fest, eleven production which, in conjuction with the performances of the 230 year-old Hungarian Theatre of Cluj, will in the words of Gábor Tompa, artistic and managing director of the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj and UTE President give proof of this very human and artistic solidarity which has been ceaselessly actuating and motivating the members of the Union of European Theatres, founded over 30 years ago, in these trying historical times that would equally challenge mankind and humanity. This kind of continuity - duly proven via premiered and invited productions by the Studio inaugurated 15 years ago within the Theatre of Cluj - makes us hope that, night by night, the spectators may enter confidently the open doors of the theatre, stepping into that common space of action which could expedite renewal, mutual understanding and reconnection.
