All the work in this year’s festival – from Chile’s Reminiscencia and the US/Russian chekhovOS /an experimental game/, to the UK’s opera adaptation of A Feast in the Time of Plague and Ukraine’s Viño - forges a path to the redefinition, reimagining and Renaissance of 21st century theatre.


All productions are free to watch, wherever in the world you are.

This year’s festival features three different sections. Redefining Theatre includes productions from nine countries from South Africa to South Korea. While different in style and tone, these productions are united by a common desire to explore the limits of lockdown-created theatre Drama Schools Reimagine looks at work created by training institutions across the globe, exploring how the artists of tomorrow use the languages of this present moment to envisage the future of theatre.  In association with the European Theatre Convention, Renaissance: Five-minute Windows, provides a lens into projects realized by some of Europe’s leading theatres.
