WORLD THEATRE DAY IN FOCUS
WORLD THEATRE DAY IN FOCUS
On the occasion of World Theatre Day, a flash mob took place in the yard of the main building of Yerevan State University and Republic Square.

The initiator of the event was YSU Cultural Center, whose students presented famous characters and small episodes from theatrical performances during the flash mob.

 

At the 9th Congress of 1961 the International Theater Institute (ITI) approved the idea of celebrating World Theatre Day.

 

March 27 became an important day for both the International Theater Institute and the theater communities. Celebrating the Day of the Theatre is a good opportunity to strengthen friendship and peace between nations, as well as to expand cooperation between all the world’s theatrical ensembles.

 

By the way, in 1962, the first message dedicated to the World Theatre Day was written by French writer and artist Jean Cocteau.
