The International Theatre Schools Festival ITSelF is a theatre biennial, organized by The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw, Poland.
This year the festival will host performances, which dispute the traditional form of staging and resemble fashion show, ecological dance etudes or cookery performative actions. We believe that despite numerous political and financial obstacles all the invited artists will be able to join us. The audience and artists are changing and so is the theatre. The subject of this year festival conference is Change – now! The international debate will regard subjectivity of an actor, who stops being a passive executor of the director’s will, and becomes a co-participant in the creative process and an active player in the international cultural circulation.
The 10th edition of the ITSelF Festival will be held from 3rd till 8th of October 2019
