ABOUT DREAM UP – TNC’s Summer Showcase

The motto of the festival is “Dream Up: Invent, Concoct.” The festival
is dedicated to new works. The question of the artist’s vision to free
or attack the material will be asked in each application. The festival
does not want traditional theater which is presented in a traditional
way. Theater for the New City wants to use this festival as a way to
push ideas to the forefront with the hope of revealing roads less
traveled or undiscovered. Presentation of a straightforward play must
be imaginative in some way.

The submission period has ended for Dream Up Festival 2018.
