IOTF is an annual online theatre festival, showcasing the work of diverse global artists. Now, in its second year, over the course of a month, IOTF will present 25 different productions and films from a range of international companies, including Schaubühne, Stanislavsky Electrotheatre, Reckless Sleepers, and English Touring Theatre. Iconic productions to be screened include Enemy of the People (dir. Thomas Ostermeier), (A)pollonia (dir. Krzysztof Warlikowski), and Lenin (dir. Milo Rau).
Companies returning to the IOTF following last year’s run include Nowy Teatr, Left Bank Theatre, Zhengyi Ci Xilou and the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre — the latter presenting five productions including Psychosis, a Russian take on one of Sarah Kane’s most celebrated plays and Boris Yukhananov’s spectacular Octavia. Trepanation, a new opera by Dmitri Kourliandski, one of Russia’s most acclaimed composers. This year’s festival also welcomes the Schaubühne presenting five stagings, including Katie Mitchell’s Orlando and Thomas Ostermeier’s The Marriage of Maria Braun. LA-based City Garage and Beijing’s Quirky Moth Theatre are just two of the companies presenting exciting new work from the USA and China.
All productions are free to watch, wherever in the world you are.
