"One Square Meter Theater Festival" was founded in 2006. The basic precondition
of the festival is what its name suggests: A play on a one square meter stage.
Time limit for each play is 45 minutes. There are no limitations of the genre, style
contend and number of performers. NPAKTHEATER provides professional and
technical assistance to participants, if requested. Stage and rehearsal time and
space, as well as lighting and sound technician is provided free of charge. Past
experience has shown that the limitation of stage size has stimulated in
participants ingenuity, creativity, and adoption of interesting and fresh solutions.
The Festival has turned into an opportunity for contemporary Armenian Theater to
generate new approaches, views, as well as discover and develop new theatrical
talent .In Armenia new and original theater are very few. In this respect "One
Square Meter Theater Festival" not only accommodates new theater, but also
promotes its creation and development. As a result the audience of the festivals
encounters exclusively new and original works. The festival takes place at
ACCEA/NPAK each year early in the month of November.
