​HIGH FEST 2019

On October 1-10, Yerevan will host the 17th HIGH FEST International Theater Festival, which was founded with the assistance of the public organization "Union of Actors of Armenia". HIGH FEST gives the audience a great opportunity to get acquainted with the values of the performing arts world. Every year, the organizers strive to attract the most innovative organizations to the festival, which represent a rich palette of the art world.

Since 2006, HIGH FEST has been declared the main festival of performing arts in the former Soviet Union countries (except for Moscow festivals).
HIGH FEST presents performances in all genres, including theatre (drama, comedy, pantomime, movement, circus, street performances, puppet theatre, fantoccini, finger and visual theatre); dance (modern, folk, classical and modern ballet, folk, etc.); music (opera, classical, modern, modern, jazz, folk, musical, folk, etc.) and other performing arts.

Over the past ten years, the festival has expanded significantly and attracted international attention, as a result of which Armenia has joined several international organizations of the theatrical arts, namely: ASSITEJ (International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People), IETM (International network for contemporary performing arts), IFEA (International Festivals & Events Association). During these years, more than 2,000 participants took part in the festival.

In addition to the main program, seminars, workshops, round tables and trainings are held as part of the festival, which helps to create a favorable atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and experiences.
