Program

AV Performances

AV performances are the heart of the festival.The programme offers projects that use very different techniques, but at the same time follow a common thread that evolves throughout the day. From video theater to video dance, from live cinema performances to queer culture, from generative art to live coding. The AV performances are organized in collaboration with Live Cinema Festival VIEW DETAILS

Video Mapping

Video installations realized with the technique of video mapping, shapes and sculptures come to life thanks to the light of the video projectors, modifying their shape and perception by exploiting the same shape and perception of the surfaces in the space to deceive and surprise the user.

Lights Installations

By abandoning the stage, light art can come close to the public producing intimate and unexpected modalities of fruition. Video, sound, touch and movement become the new vocabulary of a language dedicated to creation of interactive and perceptual experiences of meaning and image. Interactivity is the key to reading these works, works that investigate well beyond the boundaries of light communication, in order to enable the viewer to interact with them, pushing the senses and confused perceptions of reality and fantasy. The Lights installations are organized in collaboration with RGB Light Experience VIEW DETAILS

VJ-DJ Sets

The VJ and DJ performances represent the background of most of the audio visual artists, Vjs from around the world flock to our screens with colors, stories, and visual rhythms improvising live on the music played from the DJ and viceversa. The best international Vjs are hosted in Rome to show all their talent and their creativity. The VJ and DJ performances are organized in collaboration with Spring Attitude and Strati for the audio and LPM Live Performers Meeting for the visuals VIEW DETAILS

NetArt

NetArt is the real background of all interactive art we have nowdays, the web was at the end of the last century the first real tool to build an interaction between artists and audience on large scale. The net art installations are organized in collaboration with Shockart.net VIEW DETAILS

Workshops for kids

Workshops dedicated to children want to offer to the youngest people the knowledge and manuality of using these new creative tools made available from the new technologies and the creative approach that these tools have created which in some cases is also applicable to productions entirely "analogue".
