OPEN Project

OPEN /// CONTEMPORARY CREATION 2017

The competition is addressed to artists (single, companies and collectives) that operate in the field of experimentation with new languages and expressive forms. It aims at realizing projects that will be presented in the Festival Pergine Spettacolo Aperto. The intent is to favour artists’ growth and opportunities for exhibition, promoting creations able to establish an interaction with the urban space of the city of Pergine. The competition is open to artists that operate on national terrain (Italy), while there is specific support for those who come from Trentino-Alto Adige.

The artistic committee evaluated 130 projects this year. The commission is composed of Cristina Pietrantonio amd Carla Esperanza Tommasini (Festival artistic co-directors of Pergine Spettacolo Aperto), Luisa Schiratti (co-director of CSS-Teatro Stabile di Innovazione Udine), Velia Papa (director of Marche Teatro and InTeatro), Giacomo Bianchi (chairman of Arte Sella) and Rosa Scapin (director of Opera Festival Veneto).
The 2017 selected artists are:

CLARA LUISELLI (Bergamo)
MONA MOHAGHEGHI (Teheran/Milano)
TITTA COSETTA RACCAGNI (Milano)
TOBIA ZAMBOTTI (Pergine Valsugana - special support for artists fromTrentino Alto-Adige)
