Festival Opera Prima call for entries is open to single artists or emerging and independent professional companies that work with professional purposes in the field of contemporary theatre, dance and performing arts.

Where: Rovigo, Italy

When: 10 – 13 September 2020

Deadline for applications: 31 March 2020

This call for entries is opened to Italian and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre.
EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE is the proposal of a work that really experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space.
In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing:
the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors’ training; a deep connection between the actors, the company and its poetic.
Only artistic projects that realize experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater and performances of entertainment won’t be taken into account. The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and / or visibility. The festival is normally not programming performances longer than 60 minutes.
The selected performances are going to be included in the 2020 edition of Festival Opera Prima.
All expenses and practices concerning organization, communication, staff, promotion of the event will be in charge of the organization of the Festival.
At each selected company will be paid, after the presentation of an invoice, a fee that has to be agreed and will be guaranteed the possibility of lodging at an affiliated guesthouse (just for the people working in the performance).
