New Document Library

At a meeting of the International Monodrama Forum (ITF), on the sidelines of the 5th Fujairah International Monodrama Festival, members decided to found a documentation library, with the headquarters in Fujairah, specializing in the art of Monodrama that is written in different parts of the world.

The recommendation was proposed by Fujairah’s Mohamed Saif Al Afkham.

The meeting was chaired by Mohamed Saif Al Afkham, President of IMF and it was attended by Vice President, Nina Mazur (Ukraine), Yolanta Sutowich—Director of the THESPIS International Festival in Germany, other members of the IMF and directors of Monodrama Festivals in many different countries.

Monodrama Award

The meeting also agreed on the mechanism of the Valery Khazanov’s Fujairah International Monodrama Award, which will be awarded to the best Monodrama show once every two years.

The value of the award is currently 5,000 Euros.

The Award Secretariat was formed with the following members: Mohamed Saif Al Afkham, Nina Mazur, Yolanta Sutowich, Tobias Biancone—Director General of ITI, Alfira Arslanova—Director of the Russian Monodrama Festival, in addition to Olga Pozeli, secretary of IMF.

The committee will choose the best international monodrama shows and the award will be given for the first time to the winner during the next Fujairah International Monodrama Festival in 2014.
