The Festival opens with three unprecedented performances of experimental theater and sound art: by Apulian artists Massimiliano Manieri (in collaboration with the performer artist Michaela Stifani and the musician Max Nocco) and by American performer Jeannette Joy Harris. See about them here

The Festival is divided into three sessions of which: “LANDGRAPHIE”, “RITUAL ROOMS”, and “3D PROJECT ROOM”, all of them, crosses unstable territories, launches new challenges, proposes different points of view, dialogue with the social. The project manifests itself, as a concrete sign of a constantly changing society, through divergent dynamism of thought, works that carry the visitor into new imaginative connections.

The “LANDGRAPHIE” session is dedicated to Land Art and hosts unpublished videos and projects of some of the most interesting contemporary land-artists including: Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Craig Dongoski, Pam Longobardi, Ulrike Arnold. In NATIONAL PREVIEW, the whole project of videos titled “SILSILA” by Iraqi Sama Alshaibi and the film “UNDER WATER SCULPTURE” by the British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, worldwide know for his monumental sculptures in the marine parks and, for an incredible coincidence, somehow recalls archaeological finds in the waters of Brindisi. Both films were presented in part in the recent Venice Biennale.

RITUAL ROOMS” is the session dedicated to contemporary visual arts. In the “Energy Rooms” with universal themes, the following artists are exhibited: Giulio De Mitri, Fernando De Filippi, Gino Fossali, Sonia Giavitto, Joseph Provan and Marianna Rydvald. Between “Identity and Territory“, artists include: Michele Giangrande, Angioletta De Nitto, Andy Artyuhin, Marc Brousse, Dores Sacquegna, Jordi Rosado, Maria Antonietta Scaringella, Evgeniya Strygina, Laura Victore, Ten Wolde, Beatrice Desrousseaux, Margarita Henriksoon, Paulina Sierra Salazar, Pam Longobardi, Alina Lutaeva, Paolo Cervino, Marina Kabisova & Asya Rilova, Galina Khandova, Coral Fafiani, Maria Luisa Imperiali, Sandra Miranda Pattin, Katarina Norling, Donato Bruno Leo, Fides Linien, Julia Skinner, Guarnieri, Vito Sardano.
