ALTO FEST 2012 + 2013 residency award call
We make space for culture. We make space for theatre. For the awakening of urban space to artistic and social initiative. For this space to become the stage for culture, action, passion and reflection.
ALTO FEST brings active culture into private venues that were generously donated to the festival by citizens of the city of Naples. These venues are ready to welcome and accommodate fresh thoughts and growing awareness, with the intention of bringing together artists and audience to invigorate daily life and to make space for change. We aim to encourage individual initiative, to get people involved and to initiate human and urban retraining through the interaction of artists, citizens and the audience.
Following on from the past edition, at the end of each day the artists, audience, press and venue donors will meet at AFTERFEST, for an opportunity to discuss performances, share thoughts and exchange experiences, making ALTO FEST an important occasion for cultural engagement, which positively allows artists and audience to build networks, reducing time and distances.
The festival is an opportunity for all the artists involved to meet, discuss and confront each other about the meaning, direction, and political and poetic needs of each artistic expression within the historical context of our time, especially at a time when the word “crisis” has become so relevant and prevalent on a global scale.
ALTO FEST is launching an international call for its site-specific performing art festival, targeting art and thought researchers and practitioners, for the following sections: BODY, VOICE, SOUND, ELEMENTS/ dance, theatre, music, visual art, installations, urban flash art, symposium.
