La Baracca-Testoni Ragazzi (Bologna, Italy) is happy to announce a call for productions to be presented during the next edition of the International Festival of Theatre and Culture for early years “Visioni di futuro, visioni di teatro…”.
The next edition will take place in Bologna, exceptionally in two parts, considering the limitations of the current pandemic situation.
The first part will be, unless further modifications due to force majeure, from May 7th to 12th 2021.
The second part, in any case, will be from October 23rd to 28th 2021.
Therefore, we kindly ask you to send valid proposals for the two periods indicated above (May or October or both), specifying your availability in the specific space of the form attached to this call here.
“Visioni” is an occasion for meetings and discussions among the companies, visited every year by many Italian and International theatrical operators, dedicated to the performing arts for early years (0-6 years old). This year we imagine our festival taking place in a very particular situation, with of course a lower number of people attending in presence, but we like to think that Visioni has to start again. We think this considering, in particular, the Digital Platform that we are preparing for the occasion of the festival, that in 2021 will take place both in presence and online. The Platform is a new resource that we hope will become a precious tool, even in the future, by allowing us to keep constant and, why not, to increase the number of potential users of the Festival Programme.
Produced in co-design with Segni d’infanzia artistic and cultural association, this project arises from the desire to give continuity to festivals with national and international vocation, by trying to overcome the limitations due to the distance and the current pandemic situation.
The two parts of Visioni will take place in proximity or in continuity with two other relevant Italian festivals, Segnali and Segni d’Infanzia: not by coincidence, but as a choice to pursue the idea of a mutual collaboration that we hope will become a good practice.
Planning a festival in this moment is very complex, but it is a risk that we want to take, sharing it with all those who want to accompany us, by hoping that this exceptionality will not become a rule and that Visioni will return to take place regularly.
