Try the (im)possible: go to Roma Europa Festival 2011

The title and theme for this annual arts’ exhibit  and festival is always interesting and full of surprise.  “Try the impossible” this year from 7 October up to 30 November!

The festival and the included events highlight a taste for experimentation and a cutting edge element. The number of events ranges up to 39. This quantity makes up the programme range from dance, to theatre, to mostly digital music and visual arts.

The line-up of artists scheduled to take to the stage? Massive! You can go mental about it!

The events take place in different venues including some very interesting spaces: you should come and enjoy the Carrozzeria Maercar, the Opificio and even a large city swimming pool, all recently-renovated former industrial spaces . If you want to buy tickets for a number of events, it is a great idea indeed: infact Romaeuropa offers great fidelity discounts on the tickets.

The programme this year has been divided into five different sections: “Scene” has been dedicated to dance and theatre, while “DNA” stands for “Danza Nazionale Autoriale” and is a launch-pad for young Italian choreographers with a diverse take.

Very political the approach of  “Corpi Resistenti”: the section has been dedicated to the dance scene in the Middle East and in northern Africa and with a focus on the “Arab Spring”.

“Suoni” let the contemporary music merge with experimental rock, classical music, music and poetry.

Least but not last  “Digitalife” totally merge our minds and bodies with the technology of the future.

This festival is really one of Rome’s most prestigious and fashionable cultural event.  The calendar is full of international names such as Saburo Teshigawara, Peter Brook, Trisha Brown, Lloyd Newson and his DV8 Physical Theatre, not to mentioned Hofesh Shecter, Jan Fabre and Marina Abramovich.
