The International Festival of Theatre Schools SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER focuses on talented young performers from art academies and universities from all around the world. It gives them the opportunity to meet their student colleagues and pedagogues and also to meet professionals from the international theatre field.

This festival has been taking place in Brno since 1991. The festival is a unique and important event of its kind not only in the Czech Republic, but also in Europe. It has a special form - the festival is organized by students of The Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (JAMU). This organisation is included in their curriculum and one of the main functions of the festival is their education supervised by pedagogues.

Every year about 12 theatre academies from all over (mostly from the Europe) come to the festival and present their performances. For five days a platform is created for festival participants where they can present their work, working methods or theatre techniques and discuss them with their peers and attending theatre professionals.

In 2021 the festival will be ONLINE!
