American theater group, “theater simple,” visited Turkmenistan November 17 – 25, 2019, for the 3rd International Theatre Festival organized by the Ministry of Culture of Turkmenistan.
Since its foundation in 1990, “theater simple” has received a number of awards, including the Grand Prize at the Adelaide Fringe festival, and entertained audiences both in the United States and around the world with immersive theatrical experiences. In Ashgabat, the actors will perform at the international ‘Theater Art of the Prosperous Epoch’ festival.
