We invite you to send us your proposal
[deadline 7th January 2018]

ALTOFEST was born to GIVE RISE to a community that generates a critical thinking, that is constantly on the alert regarding every attempt of imposing a depersonalized cultural proposal. A community that is able to recognize culture as a primary good, of which feeling a daily need. We try to insert a process athwart the several social elements of the urban fabric, putting them into dialogue. The connection is given by the foreign, external sight, that expresses itself in the plurality of artistic languages that are hosted in the festival. These semantic interferences give to the community the occasion of speaking to each other in a neutral language, meeting in a shared space for risking.

Following this vision we found in “proximity” and “gift” the first keys to conceive the structure of Altofest.

Since 2011, every year, in different areas of the city, Naples’ citizens become Altofest’s space donors, welcome national and international artists in their private spaces, offering the gift of their hospitality and accommodation.

These private and intimate places (apartments, terraces, basements, courtyards, whole buildings, artisan shops) become the space for the artistic residency where every artist will re-qualify one of his/her artwork in dialogue and in relation with the citizen’s everyday life and intimacy. After the residency, the same spaces are opened to the audience.

The proximity exposes both the donor and the artist to a mutual lack of ownership: the first losing objects and spaces, the other losing the possession of the artwork. The gift originates a mechanism in which one expropriation naturally invokes and claims for another expropriation. The work is therefore “displaced” losing the usual conditions of the formal space where it primarily was born. The work will inhabit totally new spaces, geometries and remembrance, calling the artist to reconsider its structure, the original and essential core and its shape, in dialogue with the space and the relations that are involved in it. Expropriation, displacement, are usually perceived as traumatic conditions, but in Altofest they turn into the possibility of an artistic and human regeneration. What is private has not an owner anymore, turning itself into a shared intimacy.

  • Proposals will be considered only if regarding Live Arts field (theatre, dance, performance, and their cross-disciplinary declinations).
