Festival Description

The International Theatre Festival MESS Sarajevo presents over fifty productions in a variety of artistic disciplines, from several continents each year. For almost two weeks each October, the festival becomes a venue for artists to exhibit their art forms and have the opportunity to work with other young artists in order to explore and nourish artistic creation. The festival aims to present works that integrate creative efforts of contemporary dancers and composers alike. By gathering these artists together and sharing their talents with Sarajevo’s community of arts patrons, the festival feels it is making a contribution to the city’s evolution. Since its establishment, throughout the days of siege and until today, MESS has remained a cultural and a historical phenomenon. The most important goal of the festival is to promote and advance the cultural particularity of the region, which includes openness to different ideas, views and artists from East and West, North and South.
