What is the ITF?

ITF – the InLight Theatre Festival is, as its “moniker” says, a Festival for Imperfect Plays. Why imperfect? We call them that because they are works of non-professional theatre by the students of the InLight Acting School and of other acting schools in Bucharest. We wished to celebrate their imperfection by gathering them under the umbrella of the first festival of this kind in  Romania.

The ITF is one of InLight‘s most ambitious yearly projects, because, for ten days, we present to you a concentrated version of everything we and our students have worked on over the year, with a lot of anxiety, sleepless nights, rewritten drafts and our most beautiful dreams.

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 titled “Famous Scenes of Romanian Theatre”) and Școala Teatrul de Artă (with the complex play complex “Estul sălbatic”), have joined the ITF 2018 project and will take part in the festival this year alongside the InLight shows.

As a first this year, the ITF 2018 will host two guest shows from the UnTeatru theatre. On Saturday, November 24th, we will show “The Sunset Limited” byCormac McCarthy, directed by Andrei and Andreea Grosu, and on Sunday, 25 Noiembrie, we invite you to see “Lumea dinăuntru” by John Elsom, directed by Catinca Drăgănescu.

When, where and how does the ITF happen?

Our doors are open between the 19th and the 28th of November 2018!

At Unteatru, 44, Sfinții Apostoli Street, 2nd storey, in the same building as the InLight school.

The shows will start each night at 19:30 and 21:30, except for Saturday, November 24th – when we start at 16:00 – and Sunday, November 25th – when we start at 19:00.

Tickets and booking

One ticket costs 25 lei, to be paid before the play*.

You can book at least 2 hours ahead by calling +40 743 679 062.

*For the guests shows of the ITF 2018, on the 24th and 25th of November, ticket prices are 45 lei and 40 lei respectively.

On the last day, November 28th, the jury led by Anca Maria Colțeanu will award the most inspired and perfected roles, as well as the most complex shows. 

Because we strongly believe that the effort is just as important as the result, we will have an outside-the-contest section, The Prize Is In The Process, in which InLight will award the activity of its students throughout the year and beyond.

In the end, we invite you all to relax, socialise, exchange impressions and have a sip of Bacchus’ brew at the bar in UnTeatru.
