Introduction by the local host

HIGH FEST International Performing Arts Festival was established in 2003. It is organised by Armenian Actors Union NGO. "HIGH FEST" International Performing Arts Festival gives a great opportunity for Armenian audiences to get in touch with the values of world performing arts. The organisers aim to bring to Yerevan the best and most innovative companies, presenting the rich palette of worldwide art. At the same time, the Festival promotes Armenian Culture in the international area making it closer to the world of the performing arts. Over the past ten years the Festival has significantly expanded and has drawn international attention. 

High Fest has been a member of IETM since it’s very beginning and was one of the main partners in the 2017 IETM Caravan in the Caucasus. This 1st of October, High Fest and IETM collaborate once again and combine the opening of the festival with the first day of IETM’s Multi-location Plenary Meeting.
