Pécs National Theatre Festival - POSZT 2010
The National Theatre Festival of Pécs, POSZT was launched in 2001 with the purpose of presenting the best of the annual productions of the Hungarian theatre world at the end of the season - as a summary - in the form of a competition through the eyes of a subjective selector.
The essence, the "heart" of the Festival is the competition programme. However, its "soul" is a set of nearly 200 different events (fringe programmes) - this time taking place at 32 venues in the city - that provides the real festival atmosphere for the meeting. During the POSZT a truly general art festival will be taking place both at various of the city's cultural institutions and in the streets and squares, with the participation of the best students from the art schools and academies along with well-known exponents of different genres.
