The secrets we found in the festival jars...

The theme of the international theatre festival Divadelná Nitra’s 20th edition (September 23-28, 2011), the (non-)telling of secrets, is enhanced by our new visual identity showing a shelf with different jars and cans. Under their lids, many surprises are waiting, both on the stage and off-stage.

The theme of the international theatre festival Divadelná Nitra’s 20th edition (September 23-28, 2011), the (non-)telling of secrets, is enhanced by our new visual identity showing a shelf with different jars and cans. Under their lids, many surprises are waiting, both on the stage and off-stage.

What will the viewers discover in The Lower Depths, a productionby the OKT / Vilnius City Theatre from Lithuania? Will they go with the director Koršunovas to the lower depths of the human soul, to the world of ignorance and social ostracism?

Do the helpless and disoriented characters from Buggers and Suckers by the Bratislava-based SkRAT Theatre (dir. by Dušan Vicen) have any secrets left?

What recipes for life shall we get from the chefs and waiters gathering in The Kitchen, a play brimming with characters of different fates, nationalities, and natures, and sparking until the final explosion, which will be staged by the Andrej Bagar Theatre and helmed by the Hungarian director Zoltán Balázs, invited to Nitra as a guest director?

What shall we learn from the cries of Medea, an ordinary woman who has been abandoned by her man, in the eponymous production by the Russian director Kama Ginkas?
