On 27 March, on the occasion of World Theatre Day, the Greek director giant, who founded the Olympics, Theodoros Terzopoulos, gifted the National Theatre with a traditional theatrical tragedy mask. The ceremony took place in the ancient Greek amphitheater of Epidaurus.
Following the handover, the mask “set off” on a European tour to visit a few of the artists participating in the Theatre Olympics. Someone is met in their own venues, but most will be visited by the mask and the film crew on tour: clown Slava Polunin on his Italian tour, director Tiziana Barbiero in her theatre in Bergamo, and Romeo Castellucci, Heiner Goebbels, and Olivier Py will also appear in the film about the trip. The traditional theatrical mask arrived in Hungary for the opening event on 15 April.
