Azerbaijani director has been invited to take part in the 10th MITEN International Theater Festival in Hungary.
Recall that this spring Tarlan Rasulov became the only Azerbaijani director to represent the country at the International Theater Olympics in Hungary.
"The scale of the Olympics is impressive. More than 750 theater productions from 58 countries were demonstrated in different Hungarian cities as part of the event. The Olympics are held every four years. It would be nice if Azerbaijan also hosted the Theater Olympics one day. It is very important to overcome some of the isolation of our theater. We have everything for this and there are people who can realize this plan in the best possible way, shaking up the theatrical landscape and demonstrating the strengths of the Azerbaijani theater to professionals and audiences from different countries," Tarlan Rasulov told AZERNEWS.
The finale of the Theater Olympics will be the MITEM festival. Its rich program includes a theater conference, discussions and round tables on contemporary challenges facing culture and art, popular theater productions from France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Georgia and other countries, as well as a review of the national Hungarian theater.
Founded in 2014, Hungary's largest international theater festival is aimed to serve as an artistic meeting place where representatives of different cultures and theater aesthetics can present their work and connect with each other.
