Divadelná Nitra 2021 Theatre Festival Is On | Cultural Space bod.K7 Has Opened
What’s the point in rinsing a plastic yoghurt cup if some people fly to Thailand four times a year? What will the future of our planet look like? And how do young people feel about our age? Answers to these questions are now explored in international multidisciplinary productions with a distinctive Slovak input featured at the International Theatre Festival Divadelná Nitra (1 – 6 October 2021).
Productions that were meant to take stage last year but were precluded by the pandemic. Difficult times postponed their world premieres by a year – but also intensified their sense of urgency. The main programme of the jubilee 30. ITF Divadelná Nitra, subtitled p r e s a h y / t r a n s c e n d e n c i e s, features works that probe our planet’s future and the limits of freedom. These productions were created for the respected European project Be SpectACTive!
Also, the Association Divadelná Nitra has recently gained a new address in a newly opened space for culture, creativity and community bod.K7. On 14 September 2021, a conference for the press and the official opening took place at the premises of bod.K7 with the attendance of representatives of several theatres featured at this year’s ITF Divadelná Nitra. In the evening, Mayor of Nitra Marek Hattas also joined and ceremonially opened bod.K7 to the public.
