The FITEI - International Iberian Theatre Festival, is back from 1st to 16th May, as announced by the organisation to Lusa. The main novelty is that the festival will take to both the digital and the in-person format. Theatres, cinemas and concert hall are to reopen on 19th April.

This hybrid format organisation will allow audiences to find their desired performance, under the FITEI’s programme that features 14 in-person performances and “will offer a strong digital component to those who are somewhat fearful, confined or distant can view our shows via the digital platform”, stated the festival’s Artistic Director, Gonçalo Amorim to Lusa.

When the 2020 FITEI edition was cancelled, the organisation stated that “all artists were contacted and are available to come back” to this year’s edition.

The Government’s lifting of the lockdown indicates that theatres, cinemas and concert halls are to reopen on 19th April.
