Festival Description

MOT is the offsprfing of the ‘70s, of the changes in the Kaj Sveti Nikita Goltarot Theater, of the youth magazine Focus, of a different generation. The birth of the Festival was an outburst of positive energy, imagination and a desire for changes on the theater map, for creating new criteria and values, supporting young theater writers in their search for radically different audiences and a modern sensibility. The founders—25 May House of Youth (today, Youth Cultural Center) and the Open Theater University of the Aesthetic Laboratory at the Philological Faculty in Skopje—have permanently incorporated themselves in the syntagmatic phrase Mlad Otvoren Teatar (Youth Open Theater), more familiar to all as MOT. In its 30 (founded in 1975) years of existence, MOT has created its own identity: it confirmed its international character with performances of over 380 various shows by theaters and alternative groups from all over Europe, the United States, Canada, Venezuela, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Mali.
