Fajr Theater Festival Wraps Up Work in Tehran

TEHRAN (FNA)- The International Fajr Theater Festival wrapped up its 2011 edition here in the Iranian capital city of Tehran on Monday.



The 29th International Fajr Theater Festival ended its work with most of the awards going to Iran, Germany, Italy, and Estonia.

Some 153 performances were presented by Iranian and 13 international ensembles during this years' theater event.

"I think the quality of plays were pretty good. It was more organized than other international Fajr Festivals in previous years," award-winning actor Massoud Delkhah said.

Iranian artistes along with competitors from mainly European countries managed to claim most of the wards for the best play, the best director plus music and set design.

Iranian performers put on stage some 137 works from different cities including Mashhad, Karaj, Kermanshah, Varamin, Sanandaj, Isfahan, Tabriz, Lahijan, Sari and Yazd.

Meanwhile, groups from Italy, the Czech Republic, Russia, Switzerland, China, Germany, Canada, South Korea, Greece, Poland and Estonia also participated in the festival.

The 2011 International Fajr Theater Festival was held from February 5 to 20 in the Iranian provinces of Alborz, Tehran, Gilan, Golestan and North Khorasan.

Iran holds international Fajr film, theater, music and visual arts festivals on a yearly basis to mark the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
