One of the most important and exciting cultural events in Turkey, and the most significant theatre festival in Istanbul, the Istanbul Theatre Festival has been a mainstay of the cultural calendar since 1989. It brings together some of the finest local, national and international dance and theatre performers every year, in a feast of performance, exhibition and showmanship. The festival showcases an imaginative and eclectic selection of companies and artists who open up new horizons and reimagine traditional themes through dance, theatre, performance and visual art. The festival is a unique opportunity to see young and emerging performers, as well as an extremely interesting intersection of Eastern and Western cultural traditions. Dates for 2020 TBA.
