Theater Festival

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.
