9th – 14th May, 2008, Bratislava, Slovak Republic (deadline 7 March 2008)
Festival of contemporary Slovak and world drama Nová dráma / New Drama Festival was established in 2005 as an annual presentation of the best contemporary Slovak and world drama productions created by Slovak theatre makers. Visited by more than 30 foreign guests every year, the festival offers an overview of contemporary Slovak theatre. The main programme will bring 8 – 12 productions from theatres of all Slovak regions.
The new feature of the festival in 2008 is its foreign section. This special section of the programme entitled Focus Russia is an original presentation of contemporary Russian drama and dramatists. Within the Focus Russia project we organize an international conference entitled „Russian Drama in Theatre after 1989“, creative writing workshop, translation workshop, lecture on contemporary drama, staged readings, encounters and discussions with our Russian guests, specialists focusing on Russia from Europe and Slovak theatre professionals. The final festival programme will be available in March 2008 on the Theatre Institute website www.novadrama.sk.
