Brno, April 4 (BD) – In addition, the organizers presented a new dramaturgical theme called “Blindspot”, which provided a space for the presentation of physical and non-verbal theater. This year, schools from the Czech Republic and Slovakia participated with two selected performances. The festival program also included creative workshops and allowed visitors to discover Brno in an unconventional way in the form of an audio walk.
The accompanying program also included music, which took place in clubs in Brno, including Kabinet múz. The closing ceremony was held at the traditional location of the String Goose Theater, where the jury prizes were awarded. This year, the professional jury was composed of: the scenographer and artistic director of the Prague Quadrennial, Markéta Fantová (Czech Republic); director and actor Luca Vassos (Italy); theater director and pedagogue Davide Giovanzana (Switzerland) and actress and puppet director Kata Csató (Hungary), behind the freeSzfe initiative.
There was also a number of discussions about the performances themselves during the week of the festival. Organizers also included an all-new dramaturgical concept, ENC:TALK, during which each juror presented a close and professional topic relevant to today’s audiences, giving viewers insight into their expertise. The #freeszfe discussion platform allowed contributors to react to the current social and political situation in art schools in Hungary.
The festival operates with the financial support of the Visegrad International Fund, the City of Brno, the Czech State Fund for Culture and the Brno-Stred District. The main media partner is Czech television.
