OPEN CALL ALTOFEST 2022
06th-19th June NAPOLI
Residencies + Program International Contemporary Live Arts Fest
Altofest was born in 2011 as an act of resistance, both artistic and political. The aim is to GIVE RISE TO a community based on the "poetic citizenship" principle. It calls to dialogue all the social components of the human-urban fabric in which it is grafted. It acts as a semantic interference in everyday life, allowing its inhabitants to speak to each other in a neutral language and meet in a shared risk space, daring together in a common space. Altofest moves away from the function of mere "production" or "programming" of performances and artistic works, usually attributed to festivals, to become a space for experimental sociality.
The artists are invited for an artistic residency to process the selected work. The work will then be open to the public during the programming days following the residency. The artist's stay is required for the entire Altofest period, for two weeks. Altofest guarantees accommodation with the use of a kitchen, a production grant, and additional technical and human resources under the terms specified in the regulations in the attachment to this call. Applications may include one or more original and finished work, conceived for a formal space, already performed in front of an audience. Archived or repertory works that are to be reactivated are also eligible. The theme, content and duration are free. The proposed works must belong to live art (theatre, dance, performance, experimental and interdisciplinary formats). Incomplete performance projects or those still in the study or creation phase are excluded.
HOW TO APPLY
Professional artists can apply from all over the world, with no distinction among nationality, country of residence, language or age. Unfortunately, amateur groups cannot apply.
