Cultural Pulsations in Rome: the Romaeuropa Festival 2009

The day after tomorrow, the 24th edition of the world-famous Romaeuropa Festival, the most important event showing performing arts as usual rich of appointments and fabulous events, will start in the eternal city, Rome, from 23rd September to 2nd December.


This year, the festival is entitled “Cultural Pulsations” in order to remind the event’s thought, which intends the creativity rhythm to be a characteristic feature of contemporary society, and wants to show a positive attitude towards the artistic creation surrounding us, putting itself against the current moment of financial crisis.


As always, the event will be rich of dance, theatre, plastic and visual arts, literature and music, everything represented by great personages of contemporary art. Supported by the Fondazione Romaeuropa in cooperation with Telecom Italia, the programme schedules 45 appointments, with 15 national preview, 3 first ever performances and 14 debuts.


The Theatre suggests us a high level international bill, full of novelties, with the Mansaku-no-kai Kyogen Company, the William Kentridge Handspring Puppet Company, Jan Fabre (with the debunking “Orgy of Tollerance” and also an art exhibition) and many others.


In addition, music will enchant you with the Piazza Vittorio Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Santa Cecilia, Francesco Tristano Schlimè, the piano of Ryuichi Sakamoto, and the voice of Chiara Guidi of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio which mingles with the music of Teho Teardo.


Finally, dance this year will offer great appointments with Saburo Teshigawara, Myriam Gourfink, Olivier Dubois, Raimund Hoghe, with the flamenco of Israel Gálvan and many others.


This year the festival will be in collaboration with the Theatre Vascello, which will host many dance performances, the Olimpico Theatre, Carlo Bilotti Museum and the Eliseo Theatre.


So…visual arts, music, dance and theatre lovers…don’t miss this unfailing appointment with the Romaeuropa Festival edition 2009!
