artistic ideas.

The Festival runs every year from the end of September throughout October

in Caucasia and the Black Sea countries. During the last two years  TBS
INTERNATIONAL has hosted 36 companies from UK, Italy, Iran, Korea, Israel,
Germany, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, France, Armenia , Croatia, Azerbaijan,
Estonia, Sweden. With more than 15 000 spectators, wide media coverage and
the special  atmosphere of Festival days and nights in Tbilisi it has

with the work of major international directors and companies presented
during the international programme and a wide ranging programme of work
from all over Georgia in the Georgian Theatre Showcase. In the 2011
