Festival Readings are organised in the framework of a festival or a special cultural event of a theatre, city, region, etc. with high cultural vibrancy and value. Festival Readings consist preferably of participants coming from the region where the event takes place (the neighbouring countries, the region, the city etc.). The aim is to focus as concretely as possible on the reality of a certain region itself.
Sibiu is a vibrant city that carried the title European Capital of Culture in 2007. The Sibiu International Theatre Festival is an outstanding opportunity for its expected 60,000 spectators to enjoy more than 350 events with artists from more than 70 countries taking place in 60 venues.
