The 22nd Iran International University Theater Festival (IIUTF) will take place from April 25th to May 4th,2019 in Tehran, Iran. We are looking for attractive theatrical productions that are simultaneously informative, creative and effective for university students from all around the world. The International section of the festival will be held in a non-competitive atmosphere which invites and hosts all the crew of the selected teams, and all the selected works will be appreciated and awarded.
Having said that, we are honored to announce that this year the International University Festival will host a number of attractive, collaborative events all under the name of Theatre of Vistas. This section, as explained in the following, includes a number of special awards as well as marvelous opportunities for global, international collaborations for artists, actors and actresses, dramatists and directors.
Besides, the festival will hold various workshops and conferences by eminent, prestigious international instructors in various fields of Eastern and Western schools of theatre. The aim of these courses is to bring oriental and occidental theatre face-to-face for a more productive, collaborative, hand-in-hand dialogue.
Tours to Tehran’s sightseeing and historical sites form an interesting, refreshing part of the schedule that has been planned for the upcoming days of festival.
The details on accommodation, processes, on-field plan, etc. will be presented to the honorable applicant after the submission.
Annotation of the Festival Director:
“Today’s world has become an incredibly, yet interestingly, small place. As all aspects of human lives are now seen to be more connected and in touch, as if no distance exists anymore, why should not it be the case with art and theatre as well? It is through international festivals that one may get to know people of other cultures and may feel, touch, breathe and ultimately learn about a land, a realm, or nation miles away from one’s own. It is through international festivals that one may see the gates of universal cooperation and arms of co-production open. This is thus how and why we Iranian directors of the 22nd Iran International University Theater Festival welcome you with open arms for this year’s event. Iran is a realm with an ancient culturally affluent background. We dearly hope you, honorable fellow-artists, will bring with you a touch, a sense, and a page of your own rich dramatic cultural identity. The outcome of the intercultural encounter cannot be anything but perfect. “
This voluntary platform, presented in the 22nd Iran International University Theater Festival provides a creative ethos for the applicants from all over the world to meet members of other groups to talk, discuss, re-group and perform intercultural stage performances of maximum 30 minutes during the days of festival. The performances in this section will be judged and awarded in three separate parts of “Best Performance”, “Best Direction”, and “Best Actor/Actress”. There is one Special Jury Prize awarded for the high quality and noteworthy creativity in combining cultures in the artistic production.
