Festival Story:

BITEF continues to be the place to catch the crème de la crème of international touring theatre: experimental, avant-garde, or new interpretations of classics. The program is a mixture of masters working today with hot new directors and companies. Each year, the festival has a different theme. In a city rich with cultural offerings throughout the year, the festival stands out as a celebrated destination point for hip intellectuals, wild artists, and fun audiences. As with all great festivals, there is also a great cafe, the BITEF Art Cafe.
