German, Dutch Students to Join IIFUT Event

Participants in the 18th edition of Iran International Festival of University Theater (IIFUT) will collaborate with students from Germany and the Netherlands in creating two plays.
Germany and the Netherlands got approval to join the festival from among other nations, namely Spain, the Czech Republic, France, Italy and Egypt, Fars News Agency reported.
The secretariat of the IIFUT will hold the international section of the event in cooperation with cultural centers of embassies of the participating countries with the goal of sharing cultural and artistic experience  between students and teachers. The section will also help facilitate the way for Iranian artists to cooperate with overseas festivals and universities.
“The selection committee faced a daunting task as quality works are few and far between in the presently critical state of theater in European universities,” said Behnam Navaei, deputy for art and international affairs of the festival.
The selection process was in line with economic, aesthetic, and research policies of the festival and works with novel performing ideas got high priority. The final plays will be announced by late April.
Iranian students and those from the University of Amsterdam Theater, and Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Germany are collaborating to bring two plays to the stage.
German instructors will arrive in Iran two weeks prior to the festival to make final preparations for a play currently being rehearsed in Tehran and Berlin.
Workshops by Iranian and international art instructors will also be held on the sidelines. “Instructors have been selected and negotiations are in the final stage,” he said.
IIFUT is the biggest and oldest academic theater festival in Iran and is held under the auspices of the ministry of culture and Islamic guidance. Drawing on its decades of valuable experience the body seeks to guide theater students toward dynamism by strengthening their scientific, cultural and artistic eligibility.
It is reported that 70 performances will be staged at the festival slated for May 16-20.
