Theatre Festival "Sirenos"

International Vilnius Theatre Festival “Sirenos”

 

 

The Sirenos International Theatre Festival in Vilnius showcases the latest in new and alternative theatre. It was named Sirenos, or "Sirens", in honour of the ancient mythological women who tempted passing sailors with their mesmerising song.

It is the largest international theatre festival in Lithuania, presenting contemporary European and world theatre novelties, the most interesting Lithuanian theatre phenomena, and offering versatile educative programme. The festival represents a contemporary theatre challenging and accepting challenges, promoting the partnership between different cultural institutions, culture and business as a value. Organizers of Sirenos add here their motto: The new reality – the new theatre – for what audience? The festival attracts not only just one generation of creators, to a certain aesthetics or genre boundaries. Transcending boundaries, new experimental strategies, cultural interactions, impulses and sensitivity to changes are the landmarks of the festival activity scope.
