October 24, 2011; New York, NY: The First Annual Times Square International Theatre Festival (TSITF) is officially accepting submissions for the January 16-22, 2012 season. TSITF will kick off the New Year with stimulating National and International theatrical performances in the most exciting city in the World; New York City! The Time Square International Theater Festival is dedicated challenging the status quo, presenting work that exhibits artistic excellence and invention and innovation in all of it's aspects, and work that offers new ways of seeing and being, as both artists and as global citizens.
TSITF fosters reciprocal collaboration of art by encouraging participants to join forces and learn from each other. TSITF produces projects that integrate genres and art forms, break with traditional forms of representation, and develop democratic and cross-cultural conversation. We believe that through the practice of collaboration, a group of artists working together can have a significant impact upon both contemporary theater and the world at large. Join us as we re-imagine the theater district.
TSITF will make it possible for an assortment of plays and performance pieces to be seen in the heart of Broadway that might not have had the opportunity otherwise. TSITF will offer companies of limited resources, but great artistic merit, the opportunity to show their art in the heart of the theatre capital of the world!
