The 33rd edition of Piatra Neamț Theatre Festival (5 to 18 September 2022)

“Before our eyes is fought a battle of symbols… Theatre has to remove aesthetic distance, bringing the audience into direct contact with the dangers of life. Thus, theatre must be turned into a place where the spectator is exposed rather than protected.”
    Antonin Artaud


The 33rd edition of Piatra Neamț Theatre Festival will take place between 5 and 18 September 2022, under the theme of 146 KM


Piatra Neamț Theatre Festival is already a landmark on the map of theatre festivals, in Romania and abroad. The organization of this year’s edition is the result of the long and patient efforts of many dedicated, daring people, lovers of Beauty and Truth, both from inside and outside the theatre.

The 33rd edition aims to pleasantly surprise the public, regarding the guest performances and the international character. It is an edition that challenges the audience, from an aesthetic and moral point of view, inviting the public to deep reflection and inner transformation.

“146 KM is the distance from the Theatre of Youth in Piatra Neamț to the Siret customs post on the border between Romania and Ukraine.
146 KM is a distance that separates two realities: that of a troubled normality and that of a war marked by acts of unacceptable violence.
146 KM can mean a comfortable distance or a disturbing one, a closeness that generates anxiety or solidarity. Ultimately, the sense of proximity depends on how you choose to relate mentally to an ongoing situation that is out of control.
From 5 to 18 September, Piatra Neamț Theatre Festival will bring on to the map of its 33rd edition productions from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, France, and Germany, guests from all over Europe, varied artistic visions whose common denominator is a critical spirit and the desire to find together meaning in a world that seems ever more incomprehensible.”

Gianina Cărbunariu,
Curator of  Piatra Neamț Theatre Festival

“I hate the word ‘production’ in theatre. It’s a ceremony, a ritual – you should go out of the theatre more human than when you went in”.
