LIFE FORCE ON THE STAGE
Alba International Physical Theatre Festival
28 to 30 May 2021
Tough times demand SMART ACTION and TEAMWORK. With these key words we are moving forward to hold a new 2021 of FISICO (Alba International Physical Theatre Festival).
ACTION: Our call for shows, which ended on the 31st of January received over 110 applications from pretty much all over the globe, despite the difficulties of this period: from Hong Kong to Mexico, from Italy to Argentina, from Belgium to Germany. We keep a steady pace, one step at a time. Our vision is to hold the new edition of FISICO on the 28th, 29th and 30th of May 2021. An international physical theatre festival which will be even bigger and better than the previous one. The complete 2021 programme will be published in the first week of April.
SMART: The world has changed and we want to be on top of these changes. The shows of FISICO 2021 will be played before a live audience, in a safe setting, with mostly open air-performances here in Alba. At the same time they will be online as VOD (video on demand) for at least one week after the festival. This will give a chance to promote the works of partecipating companies before eyes of art industry professionals and a wider global audience. We stick to our vision of creating a festival dedicated to shows that have no linguistic barriers and can be viewed by audiences of all nationalities.
TEAMWORK: Although physically separated by events this is the time to pair up, unite our efforts and NETWORK to create new opportunities and ideas. FISICO is not only the product of a TEAM of dedicated people but it’s also a vision to embrace new cultures, and bring to the fore a new style of theatre which is universal by nature. With this spirit this edition of FISICO will bring aboard 3 partners: Fringe Review (www.fringereview.co.uk), Rialto Theatre (www.rialtotheatre.co.uk), and Voilà Festival (www.voilafestival.co.uk) …a small seed of what we want to be a bigger plant.
