ALTO FEST 2014 Fourth edition

GIVE RISE to Human/Urban requalification

International Festival of Performing Arts and Transdisciplinary Interventions
September 22/28, Naples – Italy 

ALTO FEST 2014 is opening its public annual call, inviting all the creators working in the performing arts, and more generally those authors who expose themselves through transdisciplinary interventions, investigating new relationships with places and audience, that will hold them experiencing unprecedented synergies, hybrid practices, crossroad among several languages.

Therefore we invite performers, researchers, art and thought practitioners, single or collective artists.

Amateur groups are excluded.

ALTO FEST, conceived and directed by TeatrInGestAzione, is an International Festival of Performing Arts and Interdisciplinary Interventions which takes place in domestic and private spaces donated by the citizens. It aims to raise the awareness of territory to cultural renaissance, engaging citizens personally. They are asked to open to artists and audience the intimacy of their houses, their everyday workplace, the memory of the wineries, becoming promoters of a direct active culture in private spaces (apartments, terraces, patios, condos, shops …) to GIVE RISE TO A HUMAN/URBAN requalification. 
 A process carried out by experimenting with innovative poetic aiming to engage, together with the places, the system of relationships that these places host.

The Festival is inserted in the urban innermost creating a real encounter between citizens and artists, focusing on innovation aesthetics, that is in our opinion the essential requirement to build a new relationship between culture and social context.

“REWRITING SPACES” is the reflection that will go with 2014 Edition

Alto Fest questions about the need to radically reshape the relationship with the places , to subvert the use of space and allocation of fixed roles, through never tempted daring incursions (gender, discipline, responsibility, action); and invites artists to enter into dialogue with this reflection, to decline their own definition of ” requalification ” referring to their artistic project.
