Visioni di (P)arte 2015 – International contemporary dance festival



The calm sea makes no experienced sailor.


Ten years of Visioni di (p)arte, an important goal to reach which we faced a long navigation…
An important goal for a Festival that has always maintained a precise identity and that is born from the desire to offer the audience the experience of national and international artists. An across-the-board work made by communication and contamination, by a research  on the territory.
A vision that consider  this language as a bearer of meaning permeated by life experience of the interpreter / author and at the same time far from empty aestheticism.

So we arrive at the tenth edition and we have decided to celebrate by inviting a special guest. Teacher and mentor of our dance vision and protagonist in this edition David Zambrano (VE-NL), an artist and teacher known throughout the world. Since over 20 years David Zambrano is a monumental figure in the international dance community. A charismatic teacher, a dazzling performer and an innovative artist has made generous contributions to the dance world by influencing it from all sides.
For the first time on a stage in Puglia and in southern Italy, Zambrano will premiere Schock 2015 created for and produced by the Festival Visioni di (p)arte. He will be accompanied by three wonderful dancers, Edivaldo Ernesto (MZ), Elia Mrak (USA) and Horacio Macuacua (MZ), which also will perform their creations: Paradise is not in the sky! and Whimsical.
From Italy, the company Zerogrammi, now recognized abroad as a company capable of having created an innovative and consistent compositional language, working on rediscovering everyday and essential things. Than we have C & C Company , alias Carlo Massari & Chiara Taviani, winners of the residency project Palco Aperto 2014 PimOff, on stage with  Tristissimo, an ironic and “teen” version of the famous Wagnerian drama. The two dancers-authors Masako Matsushita and Maria Teresa Tanzarella well represent the new season in the Italian dance: two different expressions of a female authorship with contact points and differences,  much more active and supported abroad than in Italy.
By region, there are Francesca Giglio and Adolfo La Volpe with Tornerò a dire, Annalisa Privati with the performance  Rimembranze (Vetrina Anticorpi XL 2015) and the Factory Hill collective: dance dialogues with  live music , video, sculpture and performing arts, reorganizes itself in site-specific  and inhabit  unconventional spaces.
Moreover photography and illustration exhibition by Tina Masellis and MariaTeresa De Palma, sharing of two Creative residences with young local dancers (by Maristella Tanzi and Lisa Masellis), laboratories, workshops, meeting on Dance History, meeting on Dance and Osteopathy, foyer actions.

We thank partners, supporters, collaborators, the audience and friends who have shared this long journey with us.
