The Danae Festival is a daring and cross-cultural project by Teatro delle Moire aiming at giving visibility to new artistic experiences of the contemporary scene.
Since its beginning in Milan in 1999, it’s been hosting national and international artists working in and through various fields, from theatre to dance, from performing art to music, from video art to cinema, and hardly classifiable within strict definitions.
Brilliantly “out of place”, the Danae Festival also nurtures its nomadic vocation by constantly looking for different venues, either theatrical or not, but mainly for unconventional and urban locations where to set site-specific projects.
Danae is now partner of the Open Latitudes project, supported by the European Union and made by a network of theatres and festivals whose aim is to support the production and co-diffusion of the contemporary scene’s “hybrid forms”, and to promote new methods of diffusion and reflection, with the intent to consolidate and increase the audience of these expressive forms.
In 2009 Danae Festival was awarded the Premio Hystrio – Provincia di Milano prize.
