The festival of Turkic-speaking theaters “Tuganlyk” was organized in 1991 at the initiative of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bashkortostan in Ufa as a bright and spectacular feast of the performing arts of the republics and countries of the Turkic world preserving a high theatrical culture, friendship and good neighborly relations based on historical and cultural-linguistic community . The goal of the festival is that theaters of different republics, limited in their ability to systematically exchange creative experience, can meet and feel themselves part of a single theatrical space. The previous festival was held in August 2017.
The festival is held with the support of Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The festival is organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Unions of theatrical figures of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Bashkortostan, and the Mazhit Gafuri Bashkir Academic Drama Theater.
