Chekhov Theatre Festival
Chekhov International Theatre Festival was established in 1992. The idea came about in 1986 at the Constituent Congress of the USSR Union of Theatremakers. After the fall of the iron curtain Russian theatre had to become part of the global cultural exchange, find its own identity, meet the new challenges and become part of the intensive artistic dialog.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, at the last Congress of the USSR Union of Theatremakers, it was decided to convert it into the International Confederation of Theatre Unions (ICTU), and thus try to keep an integrated theatre space.
The integral part of the Chekhov Festival mission is promoting and presenting the best Russian theatre has to offer at the most prestigious global performing arts forums.
