The International Chamber Theatre Festival The Black Box is held every year in the town of Plovdiv – Bulgaria. It lasts for a week from 25th June to 30th of June.

The organizer of the festival is the Black Box Foundation, working in partnership with the Municipality of Plovdiv, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria, the Municipality Institute Old Plovdiv and the Cultural Centre Trakart.

The exclusive format of the festival includes mono-performances and chamber plays both from Bulgaria and abroad.

Emancipated, receptive and ready to support challenging young artists, the festival is open to all forms of theatrical expression – from antique drama to experimental theatre.



Performances are held on the open stage set in the Hindlijan House – one of the most beautiful houses of the Bulgarian Revival Period, situated in the Old City of Plovdiv - the artistic heart of the town.
