The Sibiu International Theatre Festival represents, besides a celebration of arts, a perfect combination of theatre, dance, circus, movie, book, conferences, exhibitions, performance, music, and an opportunity to learn and perfect themselves for thousands of Romanian and international volunteers who have joined the event annually, forming, sometimes, lifelong friendships.

Mísia is a pioneer, a free spirit, she had to build her own path in the genre, and that’s probably why some people call her “the anarchist of Fado”. Mísia was born in Oporto, Portugal. She comes from a multi-generation family of artists. Her mother was a classical Spanish dancer and her grandmother was a music hall and burlesque artist, both were from Barcelona. She lived in her hometown until the end of adolescence, by which time she would sing occasionally as an amateur in Fado houses. At the age of 20, she moved to Barcelona for family reasons. In 1991 after working as a singer, dancer, in music halls and on television, she decided to return to Portugal. She settled in Lisbon and started to build her own Fado repertoire. She personally contacted poets, composers, singers, writers, photographers, designers, and Portuguese stylists in order to engage them with her vision of Fado. Mísia created her own sound, she recorded with the traditional guitar trio and sometimes added instruments inspired by her childhood, such as the accordion and violin. With her “contemporary” Fado, she achieved her first success in Spain, Japan, Germany and Portugal, where she has been recognized with the Medal of Merit and the award “Amalia Rodrigues” in the category “International revelation”.
