Project description:

The contemporary theatre programme “forte forte” is a year-long series of performances staged by Europe's leading theatre directors. The “forte forte” performances are united by a set of themes that centre on relationships between the individual and power, normal and abnormal, personality and the masses, relationships between people, set against the backdrop of major historic events, albeit in routine contexts. Such theatre artists as Alvis Hermanis, Jan Lauwers and “Needcompany”, Alain Platel and “Les ballets C de la B”, and “Rimini Protokoll” have been the guests of the programme in 2014.
