FITS stays with the audience with an #online special edition themed “Empowered”

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival have decided to reschedule the 500 events that should have taken place in Sibiu this year for 2021. As we wish to stay close to our audience even through these difficult times, in 12-21 June 2020, we will organize an #online special edition of FITS themed “Empowered”, which will fully be streamed online on the Festival’s communication channels (Facebook, YouTube, website).

‘We are going through times when our reality and our lives are being redefined. I hope that each and every one of you, those who have been with us for 27 years now, will get through this period. Our thoughts are with those who are directly affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, with the medical staff in the first line, with everyone whose life is affected, and we truly hope that we will all return to our normal lives in good health.

This year’s edition of the Festival, like the Tokyo Cultural and Olympic Games, as well as many other international events, has been rescheduled. We have decided to stay with our audience in Sibiu and around the world through a special online edition. The world’s big international events need to continue and during this lonely period, we need art more than ever - whether it is theatre, dance, music, literature - to soothe and empower us to trust the future. In this belief, this year we have decided to offer the audience an #online Special Edition of FITS themed “Empowered”, in 12-21 June 2020. This online edition of the Festival is a transition from a period of crisis to one of normality.

For ten days, twelve hours per day, FITS will bring the audience an online stream including great performances representing the best of theatre, opera, dance, music, contemporary circus, by renowned artists, who have or will receive Stars on the Sibiu Walk of Fame. The Sibiu Performing Arts Market, Therme Forum, the meetings within the Doctoral Platform, FITS special conferences - these are events that will certainly be found in the programme of the #online special edition of FITS. All our events are designed and organized with our audience in mind, who have been with us for more than two decades. We are with you online and as soon as the situation allows so, we will bring the miracle of art back to the stages of Sibiu. I wish you all good health and hope to see you both online and offline!’
Constantin Chiriac, President of FITS
