40th Festival Pergine Spettacolo Aperto

INTRODUCTION TO THE 40TH EDITION
Festival Pergine Spettacolo Aperto turns 40 years old. It's time to think about groving older and the opportunity to provocatively deal with a critical issue: life as passage, birth and death as pivotal moments. International performers, shows, installations, scientific studies, workshops and well-being itineraries are part of a rich calendar of events. Nine days dedicated to those who say..."I WANNA BE FOREVER YOUNG"!

The symbol of the 2015 festival is "the immortal jellyfish". This creature is able to revert its biological life cycle back to an earlier stage,representing dreams, hopes and fears of modern man.

Contemporary western society is seduced by the myth of eternal youth, looking for a way to suspend time like the limitless life of Dorian Grey. The beginning and the end are considered taboos.

The 40th festival wants to reverse the process and focus on the thresholds of life-two moments as important as suggestive. Nine days dedicated to shows, installations, workshop and much more.

Daniela Rosi, the curator of the exibition, presents "Porte". Francesco Nardi was an outsider artist with a troubled soul, who lived in fringe, suffering psychologically.

The Sofa is a rethinking of urban furniture, built od wedges called "pieces". The wadges can be combined in a myriad of ways, creating a sculpture, a piece of furniture or a landscape element.

WANR are dools that look like boat refugees. They are moving around Europe. The dools are a nomadic memorial for the thousands of refugess, who every year drown in the Mediterranean sea.

OPEN///Contemporary Creation 2015
Kyma by Two in a suitcase | Star by Serena Osti | Vitae by Stefano Bernardi | 2115 by Dynamis

Bando OPEN aims to promote emerging national artists who experiment with new artistic languages and unconventional venues of Pergine. The projects preferred are engaging and site-specific.

Kyma is a sound installation with a great symbolism. Its theory and project are rooted in physics especially in the waves and sound theories.The work embraces music, language, mythology and physucs.

"Vitae" is a sound installation that draws expressive intensity from the direct action of visitors, from their sensibility and also their physical resistance.

La malattia evoca la morte, per questo è umano fuggirla. "Stella" è un ritmo collettivo che dà voce agli assenti e recupera il senso dello stare insieme, un'occasione per ricordare l'emarginazione sociale di chi è costretto a casa.

2115 is a performance for an audience of the future. The idea comes from the Time Capsule, a sealed box made to preserve out times: it's a container of information that becomes a trace of contemporary age
