Creative Forum for Independent Theatre Groups, Alexandria | babelmedThe Creative Forum for Independent Theatre Groups (Europe- Mediterranean) is a platform for contemporary theatre. At the same time, it is a practical phenomenon of the "anti-festival" concept, where formality is superseded by creativity. The Forum is also a meeting point for the independent theatre groups that work apart from official, governmental cultural institutions, working out a different artistic, creative and socio-political formula.
Through the Forum, the organisers try to throw off all the fake masks that conceal the artists from their lives, make them lose their belief in themselves and spread the notions of isolation, alienation and mistrusting the Other. The idea is to try to fight mistrust in this world, a world which suffers from a spiritual crisis, through theatre performances, real dialogue programmes, training, education, exchange of experiences and information, and building joint artistic projects between artists from different generations and backgrounds.

The Forum is an initiative of I-act , a non-profit organization that works in the related fields of theatre creativity with all its kinds and informal education.

The 7th Edition of the Creative Forum for Independent Theatre Groups (Europe-Mediterranean) will take place in Alexandria, Egypt between the 1st and the 10th of February 2010.
