International exploration

The global community today undergoes a process of rapid transition which is affecting people’s lives and informing their cultural identities. Cultural diversity is one of the biggest challenges of our time, yet it is charged with enormous potential. Now it is up to each and every one of us to ensure that this energy is used in a creative way.

ITL provides a positive agenda for international collaboration, based on the belief that if we learn to relate to each other on a cultural level, we can transcend the differences that separate us. Theatre is the perfect medium to bring people together. Artists are hungry to understand different cultural traditions, to find new sources of inspiration, to discover new methods and ways of working with others. ITL seeks to nurture those artists and promote awareness of diversity by providing a platform for exploration of world theatre traditions and supporting the freedom of creative expression.
