OKNO - International Theatre Meetings
The festival presenting and promoting various currents of creative quest present in alternative theatre. It is directed to establishing a situation of meeting and exchange of experience: besides artistic presentations it includes open presentations of methods of work, film projections, workshops, presentations of artistic centers, lectures, seminars, as well as concerts and exhibitions.
Each year a certain subject is chosen, especially interesting for both the organizers and invited artists, being at the same time an attempt to diagnose or formulate a question about an important phenomenon in art. It dies not mean yet that the subject determines selection of artistic proposals - quite contrary, one of the main guidelines of the OKNO festival is its openness, diversity, encounter of various experiences and various ways of thinking.
The festival is associated with the complex program of informal artistic/cultural education: The University of Theatrical Quest. http://www.kana.art.pl/fest_okno_eng_intro.html
