The programme of publication is considered one of the major activities run during the Creative Forum for Independent Theatre Groups (Europe- Mediterranean). From the early beginnings, when we were still strategically planning I-act, we wanted the “book” to be present and available. Thus, publishing has been integrated into the programmes of the Creative Forum.
Our approach, therefore, was to translate and print theatre texts, for they are the founding element in the experience of the theatre performances themselves. Moreover, the act of translating and publishing those texts coming from other cultures is one of the major values of knowledge exchange that supports the theatre movement in Egypt. In the previous editions of the Forum, we translated and published many plays written by different playwrights who come from different backgrounds: local, regional and international.
