The festival dates are 22 – 29 June 2018 and the 15th World Festival of Children’s Theatre will have the motto:
“Children Move the World”
The Festival will be hosted by the Center of Theatre Education Lingen (Theaterpädagogisches Zentrum der Emsländischen Landschaft e.V.) on behalf of AITA/IATA and with the support of the City of Lingen. All the important information is in the Announcement HERE (German, French, English, Spanish).
Project Manager Vera G Bruns says that the application phase for children’s theatre groups starts now and will be open until 1 November 2017. She asks:
- Do you find the World Festival of Children’s Theatre an exciting event?
- Do you work with children’s groups in the areas of theatre, dance, or movement theatre?
- Do you have a production, you’d like to show?
Apply now! We are looking forward to your application! The Application Form is HERE.
Once the deadline of 1 November 2017 is reached, an international jury of experts in children’s theatre will choose which groups to invite.
The organisers want to celebrate a 2018 World Festival of Children’s Theatre which enables adults and children to have: international encounters; the opportunity of theatre work with refugees; a festival which revels in diversity; and through the theatre play of children allows us glimpses into their world. So let’s move it!
