Now in its fourth edition, the in : v z b l Festival puts the spotlight on invisible communities and offers the public three months of national and international performances.

The public is expected at the Basca Theater hall in Piața Traian with a program of national and international theater and dance performances, as well as artistic residencies for pupils, students or vulnerable groups. As every year, the festival also brings artistic productions that are accessible to people with different disabilities, but which are also suitable for the general public.

This year's edition focuses on the human body, and the selected artistic productions talk about emotions, the repercussions of physical abuse, the fragility of the body and its precariousness. The masks we wear every day become a shield, physically, mentally, emotionally. Preconceptions about the body, the influence of social media, but also the connection between body and mind. If you don't live it doesn't mean it doesn't exist, if you don't feel it doesn't mean it doesn't feel. By exposing the public to sensitive subjects or vulnerable people, we open up new perspectives and invite those present to dialogue, understanding, empathy and solidarity.

The invisible is the word around which we created the identity of this theater, and the in : v z b l Festival is the joy of discovering, through artistic forms, the invisible in us and in others. Together we no longer feel marginalized, alone, or simply different. Together we have access to each other and discover ourselves as we are, or as we were. I invite you to discover together the stories about me, you, us. Let's enjoy who we are. (Ana Maria Ursu – actress, director and coordinator of the Basque Theatre.)
