FOR THE SECOND time, the central Slovak town of Martin will become the capital of theatre in Slovakia as nineteen ensembles from around the country bring the best of their late repertoire to the Dotyky a Spojenia (Touches and Connections) festival between June 21 and 27.

Along with Slovak, one will hear Hungarian, Ruthenian (Rusyn) and Roma at the festival. The performances will be held inside the Slovak Chamber Theatre in Martin as well outside. The festival's 14 open-air plays on programme are believed to attract the largest audience possible, including non-regular theatregoers.

Dotyky a Spojenia examines and presents the interesting and inspirational in current theatre production. It connects theatres from Bratislava to Košice in a mutual dialogue and brings the viewer in closer "touch" with the general picture of the country's professional theatre scene, thus fighting the focus on the scene in Bratislava.
