10th INTERNATIONAL ORDU CHILDREN AND YOUTH THEATRE FESTIVAL
TOBAV (Turkish Theatre Opera and Ballet Members Foundation), with the purpose of spreading theater, opera and ballet culture, organizes festivals, workshops, and seminars by adopting the motto “YES TO ART.” One of the basic aims of our festivals, is to strengthen the knowledge and experimental cooperation among the “young” people who have different social
and cultural point of views. Thus, we believe we need to improve the philosophy of art as a life style.
Ordu has opened its cultural centers and the stage of its local theater OBKT as well as its streets, parks, and marketplace to theatrical activities. It is a city full of people sensitive to theatre and art. We believe that the art of theatre abolishes the international borders and creates positive interpersonal relationships. In this context, we would like to see various examples such as street performances and shows in alternative locations, which are as less verbal as they can be.
The 10th International Children and Youth Theatre Festival in the city of Ordu will be held on *2 - 8 June, 2014* with the collaboration of the Ordu Municipality and TOBAV. If you are intended to participate in our festival, we would like you to enclose a copy on a VCD/DVD, visuals (brochures and pictures) of your performances. The performances will be evaluated by an independent board of jurors working with TOBAV.
The total number of the members of the participating groups (including the technical staff) is limited to maximum 15. The accommodation, food, and travel expenses within Turkey will be covered by the festival committee.
However, the participating groups will have to cover their own flight /export expenses.
The deadline for the applications is March 30, 2014.
Hope to see you in Ordu
