Open Latitudes

Danae Festival is a partner of the European network Open Latitudes (3), a project supported by the the European Union programme for culture, aimed at producing, distributing and promoting the knowledge of hybrid and transdisciplinary performing arts.

Along with Danae Festival (IT), other network members are Latitudes Contemporaines (FR), Vooruit Kunstencentrum (BE), Cialo Umysl Foundation (PL), Sin Arts and Culture (HU), Le Phénix, scène nationale di Valenciennes (FR), Materiais Diversos (PT).

Associated partners: L’Arsenic (CH) and MIR Festival (GR).

The project mission is to distribute, support and promote shows and artists who investigate the contamination of genres and the use of new codes, in a constant research within the field of performing arts.

Original and characterizing activity of the Open Latitudes project was the commissioning and the making of two special projects, programmed in each of the network’s locations: both projects share the same socially relevant theme as well as the residency-based and participatory approach to creation, with the involvement of non-professional performers.

These projects are Atlas by Ana Borralho e João Galante  (years 2013-2014) http://www.atlasrevolution.com/ and Family Affair by ZimmerFrei (years 2015-2016) – http://www.zimmerfrei.co.it/?p=1451
