LasFest - International Theater Festival in the Forest is is an exceptional, cyclical cultural event that takes place in the unique surroundings of the Siedlisko Kultury Solniki 44, located in the Knyszynska Forest, in the area of the “green lungs of Poland” (near Bialystok city). The event – founded by the theatre group Coincidentia – host­ed during three editions of LasFest (2018-2020) performances, concerts, works in progress of artists from various countries, including Poland, Netherlands, Germany, Israel and Great Britain. The original concept of the festival came from meetings with independent theatres from around the world and from the search for new means of stage expression. The selection of the most interesting proposals of independent theatres, accompanied by artistic events (concerts, meetings with artists, improvised session shows) and uniquely picturesque surroundings (Solniki 44 is located in a for­est isolated from human settlement) create an exhilarating atmosphere of the festi­val.
