VIE Festival, started in 2005, gives to the look the responsibility of searching, of finding, where the strength of the new is hiding today, the artists who are able to explore the areas of contact between the performing arts, the expressive areas where theatre interacts with dance, music, visual arts and cinema.
The idea of modernity is combined immediately with that of complexity, something that is in constant motion and fast in its indefiniteness. The artistic research acts vertically, digging in depth. It does not indicate solutions, but rather raises some doubts. It is inclined to the “uncertain”. At the base of the research for new languages, there is always an urgent reflection on the contemporary world and a need for new content.
