Although adapted to the modern times both in terms of the language and the general setting, Sophocles’ Oedipus still consistently addresses the topics of fate, free will and tragic flaw. At the same time, it subtly poses the question of whether the decisions made by the rulers of today who, allegedly, promote democracy, are based on knowledge, reason, and reliable information, or simply adhere to previously organized and often outdated set of opinions and beliefs.

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.
