Open Call

Selection of performances for Opera Prima Festival XVIII

Festival Opera Prima

No Funding
Free / No Costs
rovigo, Italy


This call for entries is opened to national and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre. By experimental theatre we mean a work that truly experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space. In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing: the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors' training; a link that connects the actors to the project of the company.

Number of Participants

The call is opened to Italian and international individuals or groups of professional theatre and performing arts, structured in any legal form that allows them to fulfill the administrative and bureaucratic practices necessary to realize their performance. Only artistic projects that realize experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater and performances of entertainment won’t be selected. The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and/or visibility. It is advisable to submit works no longer than 60 minutes.
