The Triathlon is the finale
of the Drama competition to produce the best original dramatic text written in
Slovak or Czech. Its objective is to present the texts shortlisted for the
competition through stage reading. In its current form, this event is a
practical test of the theatre potential of the shortlisted texts and, at the
same time, it presents a challenge for the young team of the director and
actors who are stage-reading the texts for the festival audience. The visitors
can thus look forward to getting a taste of the most current drama and the
possibilities of its stage interpretation.
Drama is a contest of
dramatic texts written in Slovak or Czech. This year, thirty-two texts were
submitted to the competition, out of which twenty-three were written in Slovak
and nine in Czech.
The finalists and winners of the Triathlon will be chosen by the following five-member jury: This year’s jury consisted of the following members:

The name of the winner will be announced during the festival prize-awarding ceremony. At the same ceremony, prizes by the Drama Department of the Slovak National Theatre and of Radio Devín will be awarded as well.
