From August 29 to September 8, 2013 in Rovereto (Trento)
Rovereto, Trento province, home to the new edition of “East West”: the festival that was born in 1981 will take place this year from August 29 to September 8.
Rovereto is a city always open to the taste of the new, the modern, the study of culture and its trends. In this festival, East and West are seen as poles of an ideal route of switches and crossings not only between cultures, but also between genres and languages of the contemporary scene.
One of the most important European festivals for contemporary dance and dance theater takes place in the first half of September in Rovereto and Trento. Over the years it has hosted almost always through special productions or European premieres or national companies and artists among the most important and significant of the international dance scene.
The spirit of the festival in his thirty years of business was to enact the reciprocal influences in the twentieth century by the artistic tradition of experimentation on the eastern and western vice versa.
East West becomes a round trip between theater and dance, research and tradition, identity and innovation. The program also includes a section dedicated to the involvement of local youth groups, with the aim of offering creative and productive opportunities for young choreographers and dancers from Trentino.
