DUNA FESzT - English version

The main goal of the 1st Danube International Theatre Festival is to show the audience the identities of different nations' theatres. We would like to showcase that art brings people together by inviting those Danubian cities, which have the most fascinating cultural life, so that they can represent their nationalities in our festival in Győr.
The festival is part of the 10th Theatre Olympics.

Június 6., 19:00 | Kisfaludy stage  TICKETS  

Life, no matter what happens, will remain unstoppable. We strive to find the exit, but the doors are closed, we are stuck. Dorra, a girl from Bosnia, went through an annihilating experience; Kate, the American, faces the same problem: one through her skin, a pain that pierced through it and slowly started growing inside, the other through her soul shattering into pieces. Both of them are looking for the exit. In the deepest darkness, can we find the brightest gift, if we learn to accept it, cherish it and love it. EXIT: from life to life.

Maria Filotti Theatre

Június 9., 19.00 | Kisfaludy stage  TICKETS 

"SHIPWRECKED! is the result of a collective effort to bring to the spotlight Donald Margulies' text, staged for the first time in Romania. Together with actors Ciprian Chiricheș, Blanca Doba, Nicholas Cațianis, Corina Borș, together with scenographer Maria Nicola and light designer Lucian Moga, professionally supported by the theater's technical staff, we tried to offer the public the chance to fall in love with a clean theatre, able to tell coherent, intelligible stories that move the widest possible spectrum of spectators, regardless of age or level of education. I like to think that I made a show that addresses the many without sacrificing in any way the altitudinal element that speaks to the few". Andrei Huțuleac, director.

Balkan Syndrome

Drama Theatre "Sava Ognyanov"

Június 10., 19.00 | Main stage TICKETS 

The play “Balkan Syndrome” was written in 1987. In the Soviet Union “Perestroika” is happening in an attempt to save the system. In Bulgaria, the elite is quietly waiting for it to pass. On the stage, as the curtain rises, another domestic story begins, until suddenly a man emerges from the audience, then a second, a third, another... All efforts of the actors on stage to continue the play are doomed. The people, anonymous until recently, don't want to stay silent any longer. They can no longer be mute about the injustices in their lives. The "audience" wants to watch its problems and dramas.
