Home to a myriad of civilizations, the land of Anatolia has been the centre of both arts and crafts throughout the centuries. However, this ancient heritage eventually disintegrated over the ages and a great deal has been forgotten. Bergama, too, suffered its share from this disintegration and cruelty of the ‘modern world’. Its past, which constitutes its identity and history has been shipped to far away lands piece by piece.
Despite all that’s been ripped off, Bergama, yet magnificent and graceful, emerges as a culture and production centre once again. It is anticipating to open its gates to the East and the West in order to bring people from all walks of life together in its antique theatre, in its alleys and plazas, just like it did thousands of years ago.
Bergama Theatre Festival provides a unique and unprecedented experience to audience, performers and locals, in which a collective production, viewing, experimenting and discussion will take place.
