What is the ITF?

ITF – the InLight Theatre Festival is, as its “given name” says, a Festival for Imperfect Plays. Why imperfect? We have called them that because they are non-professional plays create/acted in by students of the InLight Acting School and other acting schools in Bucharest. We wanted to celebrate their imperfection by gathering them all under the umbrella of the first festival of its kind in  Romania.

The ITF is one of the most ambitious yearly projects of the InLight school, because during its 10 days we present a concentrated version of a year’s work from us and our students, as well as a lot of emotion, sleepless nights, rewritten drafts and the most beautiful dreams ever.

Non-professional theatre is about 100% passion. And, because passion tends to be contagious, two more acting schools in Bucharest, Dream and Act, with a collage show titled “Famous Scenes of Romanian Theatre” and Școala Teatrul de Artă, with the complex play “Estul sălbatic” , have joined the ITF 2018 project and will appear this year along the InLight performances.

This year marks a different sorr of premiere, because the ITF 2018 will incude two guest performances from UnTeatru Theatre. On Saturday, November 24th, you can watch “The Sunset Limited” by Cormac McCarthy, directed by Andrei and Andreea Grosu, and on Sunday, November 25th, we invite you to John Elsom’s “World Within”, directed by Catinca Drăgănescu.

When, where and how does the ITF happen?

Our door is open between November 19th and November 28th 2018!

At Unteatru, str. Sfinții Apostoli, no. 44, 2nd storey, in the InLight school space.

The day’s plays will start at 19:30 and 21:30, except for Saturday, November 24th one play starting at 16:00 – and Sunday, November 25th – one play starting at 19:00.

The ITF 2018 Jury

On the last day, November 28th, the jury chaired by Anca Maria Colțeanu will award the most inspired and elaborate parts and the most complex performances. 

Because we strongly believe that the work is just as important as the result, outside the contest we will have the special category “The Prize Is In The Process”, where InLight will award its students for their activity throughout the year and beyond.

At the end, we invite you all to unwind, socialise, exchange impressions and have a drink of Bachus’s favourite brew at the bar in UnTeatru.
