BRINDISI PERFORMING ARTS
AlphaZTLCompagnia d'Arte Dinamica
BRINDISI PERFORMING ARTS (BPA) - festival of performing arts of social inclusion, is the celebration of diversity and their importance for the creation of a more sensitive, attentive and inclusive society and is linked with the territory by promoting it and making it known to the public of the Festival with guided tours before each performance.
The Festival brings to the attention of the general public issues of social and cultural importance through a program of shows in the disciplines of dance, theatre, music, contemporary circus, video and street art, with the aim of generating public interest and emotional involvement and it does so by using art in the social sphere, thus touching the deepest chords of the public increasingly inclined to become the "protagonist" of the BPA.
The identity of the BPA over the years, this year in its third edition, has become increasingly solid and has increased the number of institutional and public interlocutors.
Since this year, the BPA is a "widespread" festival in the province of Brindisi. The single provincial calendar of scheduled events involves Brindisi, Mesagne, Torre Santa Susanna, Ceglie Messapica, Fasano and Carovigno with the aim of spreading more and more to reach all the provinces of Brindisi and further afield...
Each edition presents a calendar of events intended for the general public and with sections that concern specific targets:
BPA Indoor: section of the Festival which provides for the realisation of shows inside the Brindisi Prison, in favour of inmates, and theater-dance courses aimed at producing productions;
BPA Kids: events and performances aimed at children aged 4 and over which aim to allow children to get closer to art;
BPA Young: section of the Festival that provides for the realization of shows within Higher Education Institutes, preceded and followed by expert interventions aimed at accompanying the vision and stimulating critical awareness on certain topics of social relevance.
BPA Education: workshops to "approach" art for the small and large public to explore and share the expressive possibilities of the body and voice.
BPA Art: street art, installations, docufilm, performance art
Compared to other events held in the reference area, the BPA presents itself with its own identity and in addition to contributing to the cultural growth of the cities in which it is held, also represents a bridge between citizens and those realities that remain on the margins of society, transforming exclusion into inclusion by breaking down those prejudices that do not allow social integration.
