Timisoara National Theatre is one of the most important and dynamic Romanian theatres, located in Timisoara the city that sparked the Romanian Anticommunist Revolution and central point of the region West Romania. Its key activity is the production of diverse and high quality performances based on new and classical drama, reaching out to the community through a modern approach and social relevance. The geographical position gives Timisoara National Theatre a constant opportunity for cultural exchange with Hungarian and Serbian theatres and a key role in encouraging cultural dialogue on a local, national and international level. Its interest in fostering productions in collaboration and intercultural dialogue at European level is obvious in the affiliation with the ETC, the European Theatre Convention, the European Festivals Association and the Intertext theatre networks.
Timisoara National Theatre aims to valorise national and international, classical or new dramaturgy, as well as any other form of artistic expression, by promoting national drama and Romanian performing arts nationally and internationally and, at the same time, by promoting universal artistic values within the Romanian theatrical phenomenon. The National Theatre’s repertoire targets all categories of audiences. As a result, the 15 annual premieres cover a large variety of genres: experimental theatre, children's shows, musicals, theatre - dance, image theatre etc. Starting in 2005, the institution has developed a strategy to strengthen its identity nationally and internationally, on different levels. This involved the development of a strong artistic and technical team, a clear option for modern theatre (based on both contemporary and classical texts), the creation of new performing spaces, participating in European festivals, programs and networks interested in collaborating with a relatively young and dynamic national theatre, establishing the image of a modern, socially involved institution in the public eye.
