On the 10th of October 2023, Baghdad International Theater Festival curates its fourth event which will be sponsored by Muhammad Shia’ Al Sudani. The festival offers a great opportunity for Iraqi and Arab artists to showcase their theatrical pieces. After 150 applications of theatrical performances, only 20 were chosen for the festival, which included 3 Iraqi, 9 Arab, and 8 foreign pieces. Many countries of Europe, South America, and Asia participated in the competition, bringing a strong recognition to the festival.
The festival’s directors have decided to add 3 more Iraqi artists who will perform their theatrical pieces outside of the competition. There will be themes of special needs and a show for the blind.
Jordanian, Egyptian, and Tunisian Ministers of Culture will be attending the opening of the event along with diplomats.
