What does it mean to be a national theater? How does the human and cultural uniqueness of a nation manifest itself in a modern world full of ethnic and social intertwinings? How does the theatrical and performative tradition of the people come into contact with modern stage vocabulary, the nature of feelings and the world of ideas of modern man? What is the relevance of the concept of national theaters? How to build a dialogue between national theaters in an intercultural theater space? These and other topics of the creative life of national scenes will be discussed by the heads of theaters from different countries, who will gather at a round table at the Saint Petersburg International Cultural Forum.
