R.E.A.D. is a yearly festival established in 2014 by David Kozma. The festival is an arena that offers the opportunity to get acquainted with plays that have not been performed in Finland before. The festival brings together international theater makers living and working in Finland and abroad.
The first reading drama performances were guided by theater professionals with foreign backgrounds, with the aim of showing the multicultural quality of the Finnish theater field and that it draws on many different drama traditions.
The festival is organized in cooperation with Flanders Literature. https://www.flandersliterature.be
This year the R.E.A.D festival will take place 27th-29th October 2022.
