The Second Youth Theatre Forum of the CIS countries, Baltic states and Georgia opens today in the Belarusian capital, Minsk.

The Forum will feature productions from 13 countries over a week-long period.

According to Valery Shadrin, President of the International Confederation of Theatrical Unions, the event “aims to help maintain contacts between people in the arts from different countries, between representatives of the theatre schools which existed in the Soviet Union.” The first Forum was held in Chișinău, Moldova, in 2012.

The Second Youth Theatre Forum of the CIS countries, Baltic states and Georgia will take place from 19 – 26 November and is organised by the International Confederation of Theatrical Unions, the Interstate Fund for Humanitarian Cooperation, the Ministry of Culture of Belarus, Minsk City Hall and the Republican Theatre of Belarusian Drama.
