Education : 50th Anniversary of World Theatre Day !


John Malkovich, message 2012

"I'm honored to have been asked by the International Theatre Institute ITI at UNESCO to give this greeting commemorating the 50th anniversary of World Theatre Day. I will address my brief remarks to my fellow theatre workers, peers and comrades."

John Malkovich

World Theatre Day was initiated in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI). It is celebrated annually on the 27th March by ITI Centres and the international theatre community. 

Various national and international theatre events are organized to mark this occasion. One of the most important of these is the circulation of the World Theatre Day International Message through which at the invitation of ITI, a figure of world stature shares his or her reflections on the theme of Theatre and a Culture of Peace.

The first World Theatre Day International Message was written by Jean Cocteau (France) in 1962. 

This year, the World Theatre Day Message was written by award-winning actor, director and producer John Malkovich:


Go to the theatre with your students! Best lesson you can share with your students about theatre.

Students can follow the different celebrations and events organized for WTD 2012 all over the world.

Level: Vocational Education

"Theatre has the power to move, transform and educate in ways that no other art form can. Theatre reflects both the extraordinary diversity of cultures and our shared human condition, in all its vulnerability and strength."

Irina Bokova, Director of UNESCO
