The 54th Maribor Theatre Festival Borštnikovo srečanje is to get underway today with a 4-day international conference on ways to develop theatre audiences.

While the festival officially opens on Friday, the two-day segment Young Theatre will kick off today. Artistic director of the festival Aleš Novak says it’s intended to teach ways to present theatre to young people in a way that would get them interested in this art form.

The country's leading theatre event will feature 42 productions from Slovenia and abroad. It will run until next Sunday, 27 October. The awards will be conferred on the final day of the festival. This includes the Borštnik Ring for lifetime achievement, which will this year be awarded to Marinka Štern.
