15th Black and White Theatre Festival 6.-10.6.2018

The main festival theme is  ‘15 1/2`

Artistic Director Kamran Shahmardan 


XIV International Black and White Theatre Festival has come to its end. This year we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Finland’s Independence. It’s a remarkable milestone for the Independent Finland and the whole free world. The Programme of our Festival and the opening performance in particular was made to mark this very special year. And it wasn’t for no reason that we chose the most loved Finnish Tango compositions for the Opening Night. Besides that, the Festival also celebrated the art of Finnish Theatre and its development. This is truly important and symbolical for us, especially in the year of Finland’s Centenary.

The Artistic Director of the Black and White Theatre and Theatre Festival, the Chairperson of the Theatre Community of Black and White and the Governing body of the Community would like to thank all the participants, theatres, volunteers, and, especially, all the visitors and audiences. Our special thanks is to the town of Imatra, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Fund for Supporting the Karelian Culture, Regional Council of South Karelia, Koskenparras Foundation, Vuoksi Fishing Park, and all the workers and sponsors who supported our Festival.

See you in 2018 (6.-10.6.2018)
