For the XIX edition the International Festival of contemporary arts Fabbrica Europa presents from 3rd to 13rd May 2012 in Florence, a particularly varied and complex programme with many national primières and original creations, among wich the opening show BÊT NOIR by Wim Vandekeybus at Teatro della Pergola (3rd May, h 21.15).
From its catalytic historical centre, the Stazione Leoporda, it will stretch out across the city of Florence with events in other spaces and performing actions wich will involve and squares, streets, Renaussance corners and urban crossroads.
The objective is to bring alive a real map of contemporary senario in order to involve and spead cultural action not only to the wide public of Festival, but also to the public is not habitually in touch with the languages of art.
Thus, at Stazione Leopolda the pubblic will have the possibility to discover the most recent and interesting interantional and national contemporary expressions of dance, music, theatre with events and performances of recognized and emerging artists will mark the coordinates of a creative geography of the city. The concept is the mobility of art, indicating movement, transit, jouney, both across nations (among but not restricted to, European countries) and across cultures (through meetings and exchanges among different different identities), but also across time and generations (focusing particularly on the relationship between the Masters and the young).
Also, the special project POST ELETTRONICA will take life during the Festival, created and curated by Valentina Gensini and Letizia Renzini. The project investigates territories of “post-electronic” experimentation revealing Cage’s contemporary inheritance and presenting installations and performances by artists who share a dramatic and gestural use of new technologies.
