L'italia dei visionari

Bando per compagnie teatrali “L’Italia dei Visionari 2016”

Scadenza: 15 dicembre 2016

Aperto il bando per la partecipazione alla prima edizione de’ L’ITALIA DEI VISIONARI 2016.



Dopo il successo della prima edizione del bando, che ha raccolto nel 2016 circa 280 progetti su tutto il territorio nazionale, CapoTrave / Kilowatt (nell’ambito  del  progetto  europeo  “Be SpectACTive!”), Artificio (Como), Festival Le Città Visibili (Rimini), ACS Abruzzo Circuito Spettacolo(Teramo), a cui si aggiungono Nuovo Teatro Faraggiana (Novara) e Pilar Ternera/Nuovo Teatro delle Commedie (Livorno), lanciano quindi una seconda edizione.

Il bando si rivolge a tutti i tipi di gruppi, sia associazioni, cooperative o altro, sia gruppi informali e singoli artisti, esclusi i gruppi amatoriali e i saggi di laboratorio, e non pone, diversamente da molti altri bandi, limiti anagrafici.

Nata per valorizzare il lavoro di singoli artisti e di gruppi formali e informali che portino avanti una ricerca in ambito teatrale, l’iniziativa è aperta a chi abbia prodotto o stia per produrre un nuovo lavoro (che abbia debuttato o debutterà nel periodo compreso tra gennaio 2016 e l’estate 2017).

La modalità di selezione per i progetti vincitori, elaborata dal regista e drammaturgo Luca Ricci nel 2007 all’interno del Kilowatt Festival di Sansepolcro, prevede la formazione, in ognuna delle sei città coinvolte nel progetto, di un gruppo di spettatori locali (circa 30 in ciascuna città), detti “I Visionari”, cioè persone che non sono ad alcun titolo “addetti ai lavori”, ma cittadini appassionati o incuriositi dal teatro o dalla danza.

I diversi gruppi di Visionari lavoreranno in completa autonomia rispetto agli altri gruppi e vedranno tutti i materiali video pervenuti, per arrivare a selezionarne alcuni per la programmazione 2017 di ciascuno degli enti/teatri/festival coinvolti, nello specifico: 9 spettacoli a Kilowatt Festival Sansepolcro, 5 ad Artificio Como, 1 a Le Città Visibili Rimini, 6 presso le sedi programmate da ACS Abruzzo Circuito Spettacolo, 6 al Teatro Civico Faraggiana di Novara, 1 al Little Bit Festival di Livorno.

Per la partecipazione al bando è necessario iscrivere lo spettacolo sul portale entro e non oltre venerdì 16 dicembre 2016, seguendo le istruzioni riportate allo specifico link in home page “L’Italia dei Visionari 2017”.

I risultati delle selezioni saranno resi noti tra aprile e giugno 2017 sui siti dei partner partecipanti.

Roots in the Future

international call for European artists in the field of performing art



In the last ten years the way of producing in the field of performing art has drastically changed, forcing the artists to shorten the rehearsal time, thus dangerously compromising the quality of their work. On other hand new kind of experiences have developed throughout Europe such us the “residences”, which give the artists new possibilities of production and, at the same time, ask for a different way of planning the production itself.



Is a network which unites production centers dedicated to residences. Its main aim is to foster an artists-in-residence programs with the goal of providing a platform to support the contemporary creation.
As every residence has its own peculiarity this gives the artists the possibility to develop a specific part of their work in each residence and as a matter of fact the artists can get inspired by the different places and culture where the residences are located. We strongly stimulate the artists to imagine different ways by which they could share their art with local community, believing that art plays an important role in social and cultural development.



The project is not focused to aim at a complete production -that it may accur- but it’s basically focused on giving time and right work conditions to a selected number of artists in order to enhance their research.



The residences chooses one or two projects every year and develop them in dialogue with the artists for each country. Every project will be developed individually after selection. The artists are asked to describe in detail the steps of the production (see the form) and each residence takes care to one or more than one step.

On other hand the residence may ask the artist to give workshops for other Italian artists or common audience, open rehearsals, or perform past or present shows in agreement with the artists. If the residence has income for any of these activities it should share it with the artists (no less than 70% to the artists).



We are looking for creative minds, emerging artists and professional companies in the field of performing art.

– at least 2 productions in the curriculum
