CALL Politai Visionari – POLIS Teatro Festival 2020

POLIS Teatro Festival joins the national network L’Italia dei Visionari and launches a new participatory project that will allow citizens of Ravenna and its surroundings to choose one of the shows scheduled at the festival in May 2020.

How does L’Italia dei Visionari work?
Every year a national call for proposals is launched for individual artists and emerging and independent companies working professionally in contemporary theatre.
In response to the call, each year there are about 300 shows, each presented with a card and a video.
In each of the cities involved in the project is formed a group of active spectators, citizens who are passionate about theater, called “I Visionari”, responsible for viewing all the materials received and choose (each group in complete autonomy from other groups) the shows to be included in the programming of each of the institutions / theaters / festivals involved.

How does POLIS Teatro Festival participate?
The choice of one of the shows scheduled at POLIS Teatro Festival 2020 will not be made by the artistic direction of the festival, but by the Politai Visionari of Ravenna: people who live in the province of Ravenna and who have the characteristic of NOT being theater operators, but spectators who have made the theater their passion.

Who are the Politai Visionari?
The Politai Visionari are a group of spectators who undertake to see the works that the various companies have sent in response to the announcement L’ITALIA DEI VISIONARI.
To join the group of POLIS Teatro Festival 2020, the Politai Visionari do not require special skills, but only curiosity and passion for contemporary theater, as well as the willingness to meet between December 2019 and April 2020 to choose a show that will be included in the program of the festival in May.

How do you become a Polites Visionario?
To join the group of Politai Visionari send NAME, SURNAME, PHONE, MAIL to by December 17, 2019.
