This Introduction to Theatre Today in Central Asia and Afghanistan results from the common desire of both European and Central Asian professionals to have a more precise overview of theatre activity in the region. It aims at laying the foundations of a network connecting cultural operators from Central Asia and its neighbours (Afghanistan and Iran) with other parts of the world.
However, building such a platform for professional dialogue and exchange between performing arts professionals in these regions is a long-term process. To that end, the Introduction to Theatre Today in Central Asia and Afghanistan aims to improve knowledge in Europe about Central Asia and hopes also to strengthen cultural connections between Central Asian countries. Given that such knowledge is in perpetual evolution, this handbook is only a starting point, and will highly benefit from any contributions its readers might add to it.
