Apart from the productions, the festival programme also offers inspiring debates, lectures and workshops, ending every day with the famous ITS after party. Who knows, with so much talent flying around, you might end up seeing the big stars of tomorrow!
Connecting new talent with the public
The event is designed to forge a bridge between talented young theatre students and the professional world of theatre, meanwhile, letting the public experience top-class dramatic performances in the city's prime venues.
The festival connects fledgeling graduates with programmers, professionals and the press, and presents their first real introduction to the public. During Amsterdam's International Theatre School Festival, actors, directors and dancers will be among the 200 recent graduates showing off their talents in the city centre of Amsterdam.
