Natalia Tvaltchrelidze / Candidature au poste de secrétaire général

My name is Natalia Tvaltchrelidze and I am from Tbilisi, Georgia the country with a very rich theatre history and tradition. I am endorsed and supported by my National Section to run for the post of the Secretary General of AICT/IATC.

During my carrier I have been part of many theatre projects. I coordinated projects for Rustaveli National Theatre, as well as National Theatre Prize Duruji, and was a member of Jury for the best Georgian Play and Best Translated Play Competition on many occasions. I have also helped organize theatre festivals in Georgia as well as helped hosting an AICT-IATC Executive Committee meeting in Tbilisi.

Currently I work as a is a Managing Director of Ilia State University Theatre, Tbilisi, Georgia. I am also teaching Shakespeare and Events Management at Ilia State University in Tbilisi. At the same time, I am a member of Council for Higher Education in Performing Arts and Theatre Studies at the National Centre for Educational Quality Enhancement, Georgia.

I graduated from the American University of Paris with a degree in Comparative Literature, Tbilisi State University with Master Degree in English Literature and London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with Master of Sciences in Media and Communication. I am fluent in both official languages of AICT/IATC – French and English, which is extremely helpful for the work I do for the Association. I also speak fluent Russian, as well as my native Georgian.

I have started working with International Association of Theatre Critics during the Pandemics when I was first charged with the Association’s social media and the website. Later, I became Adjunct Secretary General, helping out on various tasks including taking minutes of the ExCom meetings, all along continuing the coordination of the website and social media. I was voted as a Secretary General by the Executive Committee of AICT/IATC in 2022 when Michel Vaïs decided to retire. It is not easy for me to assume this job especially after such an experienced Secretary General of many years. I still have a lot to learn. However, I am lucky to have him whenever I need advice, insight into a matter or simply encouragement and help.

Thank you for your support.
