Almost 60 foreign theater experts and producers are expected to come to Vilnius for this year's festival, which includes six international productions and nine Lithuanian ones, the organizers said.

The international program will be launched by "Roses", a performance by Ukraine's Dakh Daughters, and will include "Perhaps All The Dragons" by the Belgian interdisciplinary art group Berlin.

The international program also features Lithuanian director Eimuntas Nekrošius in "Forefathers' Eve", a production of the National Theater in Warsaw.

The Lithuanian program will include performances directed by Oskaras Koršunovas, Gintaras Varnas, Arpad Schilling, Kamilė Gudmonaitė, Kirilas Glušajevas, Mantas Janciauskas and Antanas Obcarskas.

The festival will run for more than a month, until October 30.
