Teatrul Tineretului

The Theatre of Youth is a public theatre. It supports emerging theatre creators. Since its inception, in 1958, it has been a perfect host for young graduates and debutants to become some of the most important actors on Romanian stages or directors that influenced (including as pedagogues) the European and American theatre.

The core business of The Theatre of Youth in its current phase are: collaboration, community, contemporary, regional, national and international co-production. A stable crew of 25 actors with an average age, on two stages, with an artistic direction focused on educational projects and contemporary dramaturgy, including performances inspired and developed from community narratives based on texts written specifically for the theatre’s actors.

The performances produced by Teatrul Tineretului will be signed by artists Irina Moscu, Bogdan Zamfir and Daniel Chirilă.
