At the end of this week I’ll be moving my headquarters (do read: ‘laptop’ ) to FITS – that’s short for Sibiu International Theatre Festival.
Even though it’s at its 25th edition and I’ve been hearing my friends praising it for a long time, I only first attended last year. It was love at first experience – mixed with feelings of regrets for not giving it a chance sooner. I promised myself I won’t be missing any more of its editions, and so here I am, one year later, sticking to that promise.
It’s a much needed overdose of arts and creativity in all its forms – from theatre (obviously) to dance, modern circus, movies, music, books, photo exhibitions, and, overall, a good opportunity to meet interesting people from all over the world gathered in a beautiful place (which also happens to be my ancestors’ town).
If you happen to be attending, give me a sign and let’s grab a coffee in between performances.
I’ll also continue last year’s tradition of interviewing extraordinary people attending the festival – so stay tuned.
