Over 62,000 people per day to attend Sibiu Theatre Festival

Over 62,000 people are slated to attend on a daily basis the 381 events to take place for 10 days, between June 6 and 15, during the 21st edition of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival (FITS). ‘Featuring 381 events staged in 66 playing spaces, before nearly 62,000 viewers per day, with artists and participants from 77 countries worldwide, the Sibiu International Theatre Festival is the third most important performing arts festival in the world, after Edinburgh and Avignon,’ Festival President Constantin Chiriac told a press conference at the French Institute in Bucharest. About 2,500 artists and guests from 70 countries will participate in the event. The theme of this year’s edition is ‘Unicity in diversity’, this actually being ‘the essence of the past 20 editions of the festival.’
The Radu Stanca National Theatre in Sibiu comes up with a unique project by artist Dan Perjovschi, Horizontal Wall Vol. 2. This is a platform of urban art making a vivid chronicle of Sibiu’s residents, through site-specific art and drawings as social comments. The wall nearby the Sibiu National Theatre becomes a non-museum collection representing the new urban poetry.
Another cultural event will be SibiuBookFestival – The Street with Books, aimed at promoting and encouraging reading among the general public, as an alternative way to spend one’s leisure time. The event makes a connection between books and the cultural events spanning the ten days of the festival.
