Ganz new festival is an international festival of developmental theatre and a platform for the presentation of young and mid generation artists of specific authorial handwriting interested in contemporary tendencies and unconventional approaches in performing arts. The term developmental theatre suggests a theatre practice that gradually develops the poetics of the authors through experience and practice. Unlike open work processes in which unfinished theatre plays are wrongfully treated as completed, the term developmental applies exclusively to completed, closed wholes, that is theatre plays by mostly young authors and directors which are the result of the work and the development of their poetics, and which remain to be confirmed through future work and development. Unladen by genres, Ganz understands theatre in the broadest sense of the word; as a media that balances on the edges of literature, dance, performance, opera, activism, film, fine arts and media art. Ganz is socially active, a common space of thinking and action, so his programs not infrequently exceed the narrow theatre circle and activate broader social groups. This year’s Ganz is primarily a working space; a space of sharing resources and exchanging art practices, experiences and knowledge. Thus, it jumps through time, expands itself to again condense into two theatre weeks and support two ganz new initiatives: in September, first edition of Zagreb Green Film Fest and in December newly launched dance festival Dance Inn.

Entrance is free, for you.
