One of the oldest cities in world, Tbilisi is located on the crossroad of major cultural routes from East and West. Well-known for its unique atmosphere, beauty and hospitality, Tbilisi leads a very dynamic cultural life.

TBILISI INTERNATIONAL, a new international festival of theatre, will bring leading artists from around the world to join with artists from Georgia’s long tradition of world class theatre, inspiring people to make professional and social connections on a national and international level.

For three weeks from the end of September until the middle of October, Tbilisi International will welcome everyone who aims to make peoples’ lives extraordinary and the world become a better place.
One of the core events of the Festival will be a programme of Georgian performances. The GEORGIAN SHOWCASE will run for four days from 9 – 12 October presenting performances from both state and independent theatres, as well as independent performing arts groups. It’s a chance to catch up with the latest developments from this most theatrical of cities.

The programme will be announced at the end of June but this advance notice is to enable you to put dates in your diary..

We promise a very interesting, creative programme with a unique opportunity to see a selection of high quality Georgian theatre from well-known masters of the stage together with the new generation of theatre professionals. Modern Georgian drama, top quality international companies, opportunities to meet actors, musicians, stage directors and writers with lively discussion over a Georgian table, with famous Georgian wine and food; it all adds up to an unforgettable experience that will enrich your artistic, professional and personal life.

The festival is just one part of the cultural life of Georgia and Tbilisi and will bring a unique atmosphere and experience to the family of International Festivals. Other events going on in Tbilisi include the Autumn Music Festival, GIFT Festival and the Opera Show Case.
