Author Aikaterini Delikonstantinidou Postdramatic Review

Drafted by Katerina Delikonstantinidou[1]

Although we witness an impressive increase of international festivals devoted to the work of theatre and performance—a phenomenon that can be partly attributed to what cultural critics call the increasing “festivalization” of public cultures—a concise reference book about these very events taking place around the world is yet to be found.

As its title indicates, the present “International Theatre and Performing Arts Festival Guide” drafted for Critical Stages is designed to respond precisely to this need for a handy vade mecum of international theatre and performing arts festivals.

The entries, as one can see below, are tabulated chronologically; an arrangement which aims at facilitating the theatergoer, or just the traveler, to spot the event more easily. Each entry includes information regarding the place (city and country) of occurrence, the electronic address of the festival, as well as contact information (where available) and some keywords roughly describing its main focus, thus providing a brief yet succinct account of every festival in the “Guide.”

Aspiring to become a comprehensive record of all the important international theatre and performing arts festivals worldwide, the “Guide” section will be renewed and expanded with each following Critical Stages issue.
