Background for the festival

The idea of creating an international performing arts biennale in the city of Aarhus originally came to be out of pure passion in the theatre environment in Aarhus. Today the festival is written into the municipal cultural plan.

The main purpose of the ILT Festival is to present the audience to some of the most intriguing international theatre, dance and performance art. Furthermore, the festival strives to build bridges to new groups of audiences and to strengthen the audience's interest in the performing arts.
