9th INTERNATIONAL İZMİR THEATRE FESTIVAL– 4-14 DECEMBER 2020
THIS YEAR’S THEME IS :
R E S I S T A N C E
Lives greening with courage and hope grow with resistance. Art is one of the strongest voices of resisting.
We are going through an hard era, in which being resistant means living. We are in a new era where a distant and contactless life has become an obligation all over the World. In this new period, we have realized how important social state is and how income inequality creates tragedies even on the level of healthcare, which is a fundamental human right.
Although Art and Theater were very badly affected during this period of pandemic crisis, through solidarity and many other means, they proved that “another world is possible”.
Despite the destructions and disasters that humanity has been experiencing for centuries, theater has always continued to offer hope, courage, solidarity and power of resistance to society.
Brecht who said,
‘He who hasn’t shared the fight, will share the defeat’ is still leading us towards a new world.
TAKSAV, with the motto “Art for a livable world” is hoping to bring you on stage once more for the 9th International Izmir Theater Festival with the theme ‘RESISTANCE’ between the dates 4-14 December 2020.
Let us repeat our call with the lines of Nazım Hikmet that feed our resistance very well,
“The point is not about being captured,
It’s all about not surrendering. ”
