Call for International Program NEW 2022!

Tbilisi International Festival of Theatre announces post-Covid return for the International Program NEW 2022!

This coming back is filled with pain and devastation because of the war in Ukrine! Independent, free country with rich cultural heritage is invaded by Putin. The wound is so fresh to us. This is not first time he starts war against other country – Putin aimed to occupy Georgia and started war against the country in 2008.  

We stand with Ukrine! We can’t be silent! Glory to brave people!
