English

International Street and Open-Air Theatres Festival — FETA is a theatrical event which has been held regularly since 1997 in Gdańsk. FETA is a festival which wanders in parts of the town requiring a stimulus for changes. It promotes municipal revitalisation activity and expands it into the most important domain — the social sphere. The festival is organised by "Plama" Gdański Archipelag Kultury.

 

The festival directors:
Elwira Twardowska (1997–2011)
Szymon Wróblewski (since 2011)

FETA is one of the biggest, the most significant and the most recognised open-air theatrical festivals in Poland and our part of Europe. It enables Gdańsk residents and tourists to become familiar with the most valuable phenomena and trends in the contemporary open-air theatre, both Polish and international. In addition, it is a unique festival country-wise which keeps to traditional line in presenting street and open-air theatre.

 

FETA offers viewers of different ages and of various level of education a valuable theatrical offer, rich in original means of artistic expression used for commenting on contemporary reality and encouraging reflection. The event gives everyone an easy access to international art and increases the degree to which the society participates in culture.
