World Festival of Amateur Theatre – Monaco 2021

IATA Festival 2021

Feeling inspired to create and devise theatre? Looking for a project to get stuck into? Fancy a subsidised trip to the French Rivera next summer (we’ll just pretend 2020 never happened!)? Well look no further, as this might be for you….

The International Amateur Theatre Association (IATA) is hosting the World Festival of Amateur Theatre in Monaco in August 2021. Over 12 countries are represented from all around the world and each member country is represented by one amateur theatre company, to be selected by a national committee. Tower Theatre would like to apply to the national committee to be selected to represent the UK at the Festival in Monaco. This will involve presenting a piece of theatre which meets the following criteria:

  • A devised piece or material that is not subject to licence fees
  • Must “present cultural diversities through scenic forms and dramatic expressions”
  • Must not be more than 60 minutes long (including time to set up for performance)
  • Must be predominantly physical and expressive theatre (singing, dancing, music etc. as opposed to dialogue driven material) to cater for a multi-lingual audience

To find out more about this Festival and if you are interested in representing Tower Theatre and would like to present a piece of theatre that satisfies the above criteria, then please contact Landé Belo for more details. She would particularly encourage writers wanting to develop original material to get in touch. If the Tower Theatre is selected, this would be an exciting opportunity to showcase original work to a wider audience. What are you waiting for? Apply now!
