THE FIC FESTIVAL 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK
The second edition of the FIC Fest – Outbreak of Creative Infection was intended to be held on May 2020.
The Festival’s aim was to focus on the creativity of the young European dance production, which inevitably feels the need to progress in the research and development of the creative process.
All the artists have been selected by the ACASA 2018/2020 call: Scenario Pubblico, as a National Dance Production Center, has promoted and will continue to promote this call, dedicated to artistic residences, offering the artists to opportunity to use their show their artistic creation, which by technical predisposition and creative atmosphere manage to involve and create a strong emotional impact on the artists.
ACASA is an independent project that stands out from the other calls in that, in my will, it intends to support the “young” artist by creative experience, and not by age.
During the FIC Fest the guest artists would share the moments of their residence, thus having the opportunity to dialogue and compare with each other; we had also thought of a moment of encounter between the residents and the artists of the area, emblematically called “Cuttigghiu”, a Sicilian word meaning “courtyard”.
Among the collaborations we point out the partners: University of Catania, Viagrande Studios, the Mandara Ke association with the young people of Lucia Sardo’s acting workshop, the COORPI association of Turin, Cro.me cultural association. of Milan, Etnea Musical Association with the young Jacaranda Orchestra and Officine Culturali.
The heart of the festival would have been the exchange and sharing between the artists and the territory.
The festival would have given our technical support to the young artists, allowing them to confront the audience.
