"Theatre Between Tradition and Contemporaneity" is the annual international multidisciplinary conference researching the Bridge between Tradition and Contemporaneity in performing arts.

Performing arts in the era of constantly evolving technology - traditional forms of performing arts constantly reconsidered and reshaped by contemporary practitioners.
Performing arts traditions influencing, enhancing and co-mingling in contemporary performing arts processes and inspiring our artistic expression - 
what means "traditional" and "contemporary" for performers, artists and audience today?

Astonishing phenomena of arts appearing on the intersection of cultures, 
when the borders of countries become conditional -
etting inspired by the unique connection and stepping beyond usual practices.

Traditions as the impulse to search for the universal “intercultural” language in contemporary performance and artistic expression. 

Traditions as the inexhaustible source of inspiration for contemporary generation of artists and firm foundation for intercultural dialogue.
