Fadjr Int’l Theater Festival, golden opportunity to interact with the world: Minister

The Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance wrote in a message to the 41st Fadjr International Theater Festival that the event is a golden opportunity to interact with the world, adding that the world of theater is based on dialogue and thought.

Mohammad-Mehdi Esmaeili added that the secret of survival and dynamism of the art of theater is in its representation of life, noting that in Islamic view, art is the completion, evolution and excellence of everything that is capable of manifestation.

The nature of theater is always dynamic, he said, adding that it is not the world of frozen images, passive technique and showing off, rather it is the world of dynamic images and thinking and questioning.

The 41st edition of the festival, under the auspice of Koroush Zarei, opened on January 15 and will run through January 31.
