The Call was open to give the possibility to participate to many and heterogeneus theatre and dance proposals, which were blocked or slowed down due to the medical emergency.
To conclude, as for the aesthetic, this edition will be dedicated above all to dance and visual art, with the contamination of multimedial language. Anyway, contemporary prose won’t be missing. As is the last edition we can expect an amazing dialogue among contrasts.
