Initiated and lead by Enikő Eszenyi, the artistic director of Vígszínház, and supported by the UTE – Union des Théâtres de l’Europe, Classperimental is addressed to young directors from across Europe. In a 10 days exchange, they have the opportunity, through workshops and lectures, to learn and discover the working process on a big sized stage directly from respected and well-experienced professionals. This year international guest lecturer was Claudio Longhi, Italian stage director and professor. Participating in the masterclass were young stage professionals from Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Italy, Romania and Greece.
Union des Théâtres de l'Europe gathered, in the last 3 decades, some of the most important European theatres and artists. Through festivals, exhibitions, exchanges, masterclasses, cooperation projects, the UTE help create a continuous flow between West and East, between generations, between tradition and innovation. Our celebration is inspired by this rich history. With the help of the Interferences International Theatre Festival, we wish to remember some of the best performances presented at past editions of the UTE festival and look forward to new horizons.
