Oct 27, 2021

Roberto Castello and Carlo Massari, the Collettivo Mine, Marta Bevilacqua and Davide Valrosso alongside the superstar, the Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal, are some of the protagonists of the ‘Visavi Gorizia Dance Festival’, the event now in its second edition which will take place from 28 to 31 October in the city of Gorizia and Nova Gorica. “Gorizia is preparing, together with nearby Nova Gorica, to become European Capital of Culture 2025 – Walter Mramor, artistic director of ‘Visavi- Gorizia Dance Festival’ explained to the Adnkronos – The two cities continue that approach path undertaken for years that he will see them ready and united for the big appointment “. “Visavì Gorizia Dance Festival wants to favor this goal – added Mramor – and does so with different tools. By creating opportunities for meeting, exchange and knowledge for the public and artists of the two states (I am thinking of Visavì Experimental Contest, in which young artists use dance as a language to discuss), putting into practice cross-border cooperation, through collaboration with the Slovenian National Theater of Nova Gorica which is a partner of the project, weaving relationships with bodies and structures active in the area and promoting the creation of international networks , in particular Pan Adria, a network for the support of contemporary dance that Artisti Associati has started together with six other Slovenian and Croatian structures “. “We have thought of an engaging and suggestive program – explained Walter Mramor – capable of communicating and transmitting emotions. An innovative program that looks to the future, able to speak to young people and bring generations together. And then the theme of overcoming borders and barriers of any kind, of which dance becomes the voice and interpreter. We are also happy to support local artists who are able to establish themselves internationally, I am thinking of Pablo Girolami, Giovanni Leonarduzzi or Slovenian Katja Kolaric who will present a study of their latest works in a new section of the festival entitled Visavì Short format “. “And then there are the young Italian artists that we got to know better thanks to the Artefici project. ResidenzeCreativeFvg – continued the artistic director of the event – such as Davide Valrosso who will present his ‘Five dances for the future’, Carlo Massari and the Mine Collective “. Guests, this year, also two new creations from neighboring Slovenia (‘Icarus’ by MNCompany and ‘Indefinite Frequency’ by Milan Tomášik and Charlie Brittain) alongside the company Aldes by Roberto Castello which is previewing its new project ‘Inferno’ and Tanzmainz who offers Sharon Eyal’s ‘Soul Chain’ in the national premiere.
