The EITAI Festival (International Meeting of Alternative Theater and Research) was born as an alternative among the filmmakers of the city of Querétaro to locate and reflect with the national and international panorama on the stage work on three levels: the creative (aesthetic and poetic), the formative (workshops) and the critic (reflection circles, work tables and presentations).

Since 2006, EITAI has been established, more than as a festival, as a platform for meeting and communication between theater work and other related disciplines that come together to create ties of promotion, dissemination and creative and production cooperation. These ties have led the EITAI not only to establish itself as a point for the different invited companies, but the festival itself has been integrated and conformed to other work networks between festivals and groups.  

Since 2012, the festival has had significant growth in the central-western region of the country, opening its doors in cities such as León, Zacatecas, Celaya, Amealco, Los Reyes and Guadalajara, where links with independent, state and municipal entities have been created. , to generate the production ties of a festival that weaves a network between co-producing groups and co-investors of the EITAI Festival. Similarly, these collaborations have been magnified by consolidating a network of work and collaboration with the Agrupaciones Factotum Scene and Colectivo Alebrije, from León Guanajuato, and Los Cosmicónicos from the City of Zacatecas.

This growth has also been manifested in the creation of work networks between festivals, which have addressed the city of Querétaro itself, Red Centro Occidente. Latin American Theater Corridor (Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico), Pehueme Stage collaboration project (Chile - Mexico - France - Denmark - Spain), and with the critic and curator Carlos Rojas (Venezuela - Colombia).

Currently the EITAI Festival is preparing the launch of a publication where participants, critics and curators talk about the first years of the Festival and the work of its organizers.
