Fabbrica Europa

Worlds of Culture

Worlds of Culture is the title of the 2011 Festival Fabbrica Europa, scheduled for May 4 to 28 at the Stazione Leopolda and other venues. It opens a new exploration into the many cultural islands and territories that although part of that global world that is our continent today, have a recognizable identity and a fertile originality. Fabbrica Europa includes national and international productions and projects by recognized masters and a new generation of artists who, through the contamination between different disciplines, broaden the horizon of the contemporary artistic idioms. With a detailed program of events that include dance, theatre, music, installations, workshops and panels, the Festival is an opportunity to draw an ever more current map of the thoughts that cross contemporary Europe.

The opening is headed by Alain Platel, a master of the European scene. One of this year’s guests and productions is the premiere of Missa Ockeghem, the result of a collaboration between Homme Armé and Tempo Reale; Zita Swoon in collaboration with Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, the Norwegians Verdensteatret and Zero Visibility, Virgilio Sieni, Anna Stigsgaard and Roberto Bacci, T.R.A.S.H., Santasangre and much more.
