HKD Teatar - International Small Scene Theatre Festival Rijeka
From its modest yet ambitious beginnings, the program has included an international orientation — somewhat departing from its original idea of adhering to the presentation of exclusively “small scene” shows. At the same time, the Festival has brought up, analyzed, and discussed a large number of essential themes and questions pertinent to contemporary theatre. By scrutinizing and comparing theatrical achievements in Croatian theatre with the rest of the world in regard to contemporary drama as well as theatre classics.
The Festival has, all the more, emphasized the necessity of representing contemporary Croatian drama in the context it has occupied for centuries, a context that not only binds but also defines Croatian culture in the broadest sense. The boundaries of that culture run along the Mediterranean and extend over Middle and Southeastern Europe, thus embracing Croatian culture and its theatre, both of which have for centuries participated in a broad exchange of dreams.
