On November 3-4, the first stage of the Lithuanian Dramaturgy Festival VersmÄ— (Eng. Spring) took place in the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre. The festival presented advance readings of the works by Lithuanian playwrights.
The festival PLArTFORMA will take place in KlaipÄ—da on 22 â€“ 24 July. It is a continuation of an international art festival SEAS that was co-organized together with Swedish cultural institution Intercult and was held in Klaipeda last year in July.
The second International Theatre Festival "Sirenos" (Sirens) that is going to be held this September will present a prelude - the traditional Japanese Noh Theatre will be included into the program of the festival. This has been possible due to the consensus of the European Union and Japan summits, on the basis of which the year 2005 is announced 2005 EU-Japan Year of People-to-People Exchanges.
