Has announced a play contest for the 23 rd FEP, held this year 17 th through 20 th of August in Backa Palanka. The contest is intended for professional theatrical troupes specializing in plays for children and youth, and the applications are due by May 15th. FEP is inviting all professional theaters specializing in performances that concern ecology or align with this years’ slogan ‘With my Big Closed Eyes’ to apply. Our festivals’ selector for this year, playwright Vladislava Vojnovic will, by the 8 th of June, select six plays to be performed on this years’ FEP. In a town without a theater, FEP has been, for the past 23 years, the only organization dealing with systematic nurture of culture, encouragement of creativity and love towards art and crafts alike. The festival involves in its activities children and young people from all around Backa Palanka, its surrounding areas and the region. Apply for the Festival of Ecological Theater for Children and Youth and share with us what lies behind your big closed eyes.
