Oriente Occidente Dance Festival
Oriente Occidente Festival comes back in Rovereto
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
With a program adapted to current times, characterized by physical distancing but also by the desire to start again, Oriente Occidente meets in Rovereto on the traditional dates of September with the need for a social and economic restart and at the same time guaranteeing the right safety to the public, the artists and the staff. Mostly open-air shows, public contingent in theaters, double performances of the shows to allow more people to participate safely, this are the new solutions born thanks to the dialogue with the artists during the closing months. Dance is the natural language of the body, which today more than ever becomes political, as well as poetic. Like the opposites of the world , Oriente Occidente has always compared like as strength and fragility, presence and movement, contact and distance, solitude and sociality will alternate between the pages of the 40th Oriente Occidente Festival.
