OPEN CALL

FOR INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES
deadline 8th JANUARY 2024

“The Theaters of the World” is one of the most important and long-lived Italian festivals dedicated to children and youth theater in the world and it represents the most complete window that our country opens up to this particular kind of performance. It includes theater performances, workshops, exhibitions, special events and original projects.


Since its birth in 1990, the Festival has always joined the theater people from all over the world in a celebration full of colors and sounds, a celebration that is committed to the rights of minors and to peace among people and countries

During the Festival, the town of Porto Sant'Elpidio is invaded by a lot of joyful, shouting and strongly motivated people who are one of the elements of boasting and strength of this project. That witnesses their interest in and their love for this event: children and young people with their families; Italian, European and international professionals, amateurs and journalists

Italian, European and International companies present the most various and original techniques of live performance: theater of actors and figures, comic theatre, shadows, puppets, marionettes, dance, animated objects, video projections and new technologies, bringing the young and the less young to a voyage through the knowledge, the enchantment and the everlasting magic coming from the story telling.


Today “I Teatri del Mondo” is a big container in which many other linked projects were born and have grown, making it a unique and special event in its genre.


The XXXV edition of THE THEATER OF THE WORLD – International Theater Festival for Children – will take place from 13th to 20th July 2024 in Porto Sant'Elpidio (FM) – Italy.


The performance proposals should meet the following criteria:


  • Be suitable for children 3-12;
  • Well understandable by the Italian audience (no words or few understandable words or translated into Italian)


The deadline for submission is 8th January 2024.
