AreaDanzaUrban Dance Festival
Areadanza_urban dance festival was born from the Arearea contemporary dance company’s will to bring research dance into everyday spaces. The soul of the festival has always been dwelling in innovating the ways of enjoying dance by inserting the gesture and artistic tension in the roots of contemporary cities. And, for this exceptional edition, in re-inhabiting the spaces of the city, with art and dance, after the uncertain months of lockdown.
Areadanza 2020 resists the inclemency of Covid-19 and, under the artistic direction of Marta Bevilacqua and Roberto Cocconi, with the help of Paolo Ermano as the project manager, it reaches its tenth edition.
Site-specific dance is a stylistic code for the company from Udine, which, for many years, has lowered and integrated a gesture of freedom and transgression into the urban landscape, facilitating the viewer to take an emotional and intimate approach between the architecture of spaces and bodies.
After months of absence of artistic activities, the crowded group of Arearea feels the urge to return to dance and do it in a group!
The global crisis linked to Covid19 has highlighted the central contribution of Culture and the Arts to our mental health and our capacity for social cohesion, in short to individual and collective human flowering. The scenario is that of a society facing a sort of post-traumatic stress disorder, in which the enormous social costs of the crisis touch different social and political dimensions.
Among all the languages of live art, dance, both social and on stage, risks being undermined in its deep roots: contact, relationship, shared effort: AreaDanza 2020 is our chance to start again!
The 2020 edition sees the birth of the network Intersections.
“Intersections” is a network of unconventional live art and show festivals (dance, theater, circus, music, relational performance, and visual arts) that “inhabit” the urban spaces of the Fvg region. All the network’s festival (Areadanza, Art Tal Ort, Digital Contaminations, Invisible Cities, Microfestival, Terminal) have an itinerant nature, move in different spaces of the same city or pass from one location to another, inventing each time for spectators a real adventure for the eye and the mind, thanks to the experimentation and the search for new languages and artistic practices. Therefore, “a device that favors collaborations between projects designed for a large audience, which sees urban art as an opportunity to enjoy common spaces in an unconventional, participatory, collective way.”
AreaDanza 2020 hosts in Venzone and Palmanova the proposals of the Production Theaters sector of the OrtoTeatro and CTA region of Gorizia with particular attention to the little ones and their families!
