This year, the audience will be able to enjoy various performances and plays, including the Tiger Lillies, Martial Art in Dance, The Eighth Life (for Brilka), Dialogue in Skin -South East Asia Music, Contemporary Percussion, etc.

The Tiger Lillies' music is a startling mixture of opera, gypsy song, and left-bank Paris, but what marks out this band from any others is the emotional charge and raw passion of the delivery.

Martial Art in Dance, directed by Zhao Liang, will take place on September 26 at Alexander Griboedov State Russian Drama Theatre.

“Those who can stop the war and fight are genuine martial artists/Fighters; when such martial art was performed to the rhythm of the music, the art of dance came into being.

Every martial artist knows when to attack and when to defend, highly emphasizing the connection between the ego and the external world,” reads the description of Martial Art in Dance.

Festival consists of International Program, International Program “New,” Georgian Showcase Program, New Market, Festival Club, International Assemblies and Symposiums of critics “Culture Bridge.”

Master classes, workshops, and exhibitions take place along with the festival every year.
