The second day of the Sibiu International Theater Festival brought back the emotions and talents of the 80 venues proposed by the organizers to fans of the performing arts. Exhibits from the visual arts platform were admired by those who crossed the threshold, and FITS conferences had distinguished guests.
The scheduled (daily) press conference at 10 am opened yesterday’s dialogue series. The first guest, His Excellency Arthur Mattley, Swiss Ambassador to Romania, discussed the power of theater and cultural diversity and how they should be taught in schools, but also about the future of the European Capital of Culture in 2023 – Timisoara – and the XXX edition of FITS that will take place next year.
He was joined by the French actor Mounir Markoum, who was seen by the audience in the program “The Need for Truth” presented by Teeter Vide Lausanne, who spoke about his life and journey to the theater as a professional actor.
Bebo Delbono – “I Don’t Put My Mind Into The Show, But My Heart”
About the program “Love”, with which he delighted his viewers, at FITS, in the first two days, the actor, director and writer Bebo Delbono said: “Yesterday I saw a lot of people crying at my show. I am not crying for my story and I am crying for their love story.
At the special conference “George Banno in dialogue with Klaus Behmann, Emil Hryzino and Ioan Hollander”, Klaus Beemann, who also receives a star in the Alley of Fame, said that “the theater should not be a place of solitude. On the contrary”, the theater intervenes “I was I’ve always wanted to turn art and theater into something that everyone can enjoy, that everyone can turn to, an open space. That was the basis of my activity.”
