Network and collaboration

Finestate Festival is a network that besides, aiding the promotion and work of international artists in Italy and international-level Italian artists abroad, is to encourage collaboration between artists from different places and arts. The need to find forms of collaboration starting with the common concerns regarding contemporary art and performative arts, has brought about the creation of a network formed by various Italian entities: B.Motion/Operaestate Festival Veneto (Bassano del Grappa), Short Theatre (Rome), Terni Festival (Terni), Contemporanea Festival (Prato) and Sardegna Teatro (Cagliari).

Conceived by the Institut Français with support by the Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati, the project TransARTE favours the movement and promotion of artistic forms born out of the hybridisation of multiple artistic disciplines. This innovative project was inaugurated in 2012 in Italy in collaboration with the network of Italian festivals Finestate, before going on to further development in Europe and Latin America, thanks to numerous collaborations worldwide. The TransARTE project is supported by the Institut Français, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati.

Dèrive – Basta Stare a Guardare con Attenzione
Carrozzerie | N.O.T is a growing phenomenon in Rome, which dedicates its forces to creating new projects connected to dance, theatre and the performing arts. Since 2013, it has acted as a platform for identifying and sustaining new projects and artistic endeavours in their becoming a reality. Short Theatre and Carrozzerie_N.O.T share their efforts towards aiding the productions of emerging talents by offering support and guidance. Starting last year, the two entities created the project Dérive – Basta Stare a Guardare con Attenzione.

The need to find new forms of collaboration, starting from common concerns regarding contemporary art, brought about a shared project by Short Theatre and Santarcangelo Festival. The collaboration between the two festivals has existed informally for many past editions already, sharing both research and discoveries, in the theatre, as well as in other contemporary artistic creations. This year, Short Theatre and Santarcangelo Festival attempt some magic, jointly managing, in part, their respective musical programs, sharing a common atmosphere subsequently, despite their geographic differences.
