Background, goals and visions
THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE ART FESTIVAL OF DENMARK
ILT stands for 'International Living Theatre' and that is exactly what this international theatre-biennale is all about. In May 2015 ILT brought international stage art of high quality to Aarhus for the fourth time.
The idea of an international theatre festival arose out of passion in the stage art environment of Aarhus, and the festival is organized by a number of Aarhus based theatres joining together in an ambitious collaboration.
To day ILT is enrolled in The Culture Action Plan of The City of Aarhus as Aarhus has been appointed European Capital of Culture 2017
The overall goal for ILT is to give audience access to a high class selection of contemporary international stage art. Further more the festival aims to reach new audiencens and to strengthen the public interest in theatre, dance and performance in general.
Creating a short and intense stage art festival every second year in the city of Aarhus and the region.
The festival is fully established in 2017.
Showing the best plays and stage art experiences of the world by presenting the best stage art companies of the world.
Attract stage art interested people from Aarhus, Denmark and the rest of Europe - and thereby putting Aarhus and the theatres of the city on the world map.
