Biennale College Teatro 2021
The Biennale Teatro intends to promote a new call for site-specific performances.
Consistently with the new calls for Italian directors under 35 and authors under 40, Biennale Teatro pursues its intention to give a voice and visibility to those who work in Theatre, remaining faithful to its educational mission.
Driven by this need to bring the Theatre back to audiences, who are fearful of infection and unaccustomed to the ritual of the stage, this need to build a performative gesture within the social perimeters of daily life, we will attempt to reconstruct the atmosphere of Renaissance Venice, in which the theatre will occupy its vital spaces, revitalizing the sense of collective togetherness that art must learn to bring to its citizens.
A call will be launched for an original outdoor work of performance art, identifying places that are significant in the daily life of the lagoon.
Considering the great interest around the world in original works of performance art, so deeply linked to the Visual Arts, to Music and Dance, La Biennale di Venezia believes it is important and necessary to invite international artists to try their hand at writing for the stage, in such site-specific performance works that can focus on the issues of the Contemporary age.
The call is addressed to Italian and international performers under the age of 40. Those who intend to participate must not have reached their 41st birthday on or before the call deadline (20 February 2021). The Call is for performers presenting their own creation (in any language/or without language) which has never premiered either in study form or complete form. The theme, in keeping with the concept of the 2021 Festival, will be Blue understood as acceptance/infinite distance from what is other than Us: the resurgence of the Pandemic and the interpretation of a new grammar of communication will constitute the investigative tracks.
