Scenic Harvest isn’t merely the largest nationwide festival with international participants, but also the oldest festival of non-professional theatre in Europe.
Today the Festival is the utmost showcase of local companies and individuals in all genres of amateur theatre, and of selected companies from abroad. The Festival offers space for learning supported by theatre theorists, dramaturges, stage directors, set designers, and theatre critics.
Scenic Harvest, convened by the National Centre of Culture and Further Education, is scheduled for the second half of December 2020 and will take place in Bratislava (instead of city of Martin). The festival was postponed because of coronavirus. To mark The Year of Slovak Theatre, the 98th Festival edition will include rememberance activities, within the Festival programme, as well asoff-programme and learning events.
