Sibiu Performing Arts Market is an associated structure of Sibiu International Theatre Festival (FITS). It aims to grant opportunities for all artists, cultural managers, performing arts institutions or cultural networks to meet important producers from around the world. Through its events, it provides the context for the promotion of artistic projects and establishing collaborations, as well for sharing and learning the most recent information in the performing arts field.
Since its first edition in 1997, Sibiu Performing Arts Market has developed into an important cultural network, facilitating connections between festivals and artists, performing arts, independent companies or public institutions. Every year, participants from all over the world, representing various cultural organizations (artistic management agencies, NGOs, public institutions, independent companies, etc.), meet in Sibiu and build connections as well as potential partnerships.
In 2021, The Market took place in a hybrid format, combining the physical and online dimensions, thus enabling participants in Sibiu to connect with those who could not travel, and be together through digital solutions. This format continued in 2022, while The Market built a bridge between the in-person and online dimensions, and created a global space for meetings and discussions in the performing arts. In 2023, at its 26th anniversary, The Market enhanced global cooperation between enthusiastic artists, professionals and cultural operators. The hybrid format of this edition was welcomed by participants and meaningful and useful dialogues took place in a framework that focused daily on each category of participants.
