The International Small Scenes Theatre Festival Rijeka began in 1994 as the Croatian Festival of Small Scenes gathering the best and most progressive accomplishments of chamber theatre, founded within the production of the Croatian institutional and independent theatres. Since 1999 the Festival has included foreign shows in the main programme as well as continuing to remain faithful to its insistence on modern expression, a first class actor’s theatre and performances that provide the most direct approach of the performer with the public. As a competition festival (with awards assigned in some ten categories) with a solid conceptual direction (the choice of shows is usually gathered around one or more thematic directions) and a very vivid atmosphere (well attended discussions after the shows), the Festival has very quickly become one of the most prestigious theatre events in the region.
