Le Petit Festival du Théâtre 2014
Le Petit in name but Le Grand in nature. The Le Petit Festival du Théâtre in Dubrovnik has a rich and strong tradition in the city; in fact this year will be the tenth anniversary of the festival. Highlighting the very best of international and Croatian arts the Le Petit festival has always provided artists, from all forms, the chance to be creative and ground-breaking. The festival will be held from the 21st till the 28th of June 2014, a week of cutting edge art in Dubrovnik.
The theme of this year’s festival is “The Beauty of Healing” and includes artists from Austria, China, France, USA, Romania, Iran and Germany as well as home-grown talent. And as the festival states - There is no beginning… There is no end… There is only a journey. The beauty of the truth is a healing too.
