Santarcangelo Festival: open call for the artistic direction 2021 – 2023

Santarcangelo dei Teatri is launching a public call for the artistic direction of Santarcangelo Festival. The assignment is for three years, starting from the 2021 edition. The deadline for the application – download available on – is set on Febraury 10, 2020.

Candidates will need to send a detailed resume and the project guidelines in a document no longer than 1200 words. The evaluation of each application and the appointment of the artistic direction will be responsibility of the Board of Directors.

Santarcangelo Festival celebrates in 2020 its 50th anniversary. It is the oldest Festival in Italy dedicated to contemporary performing arts and one of the most significant in the European world of theatre and dance.

Giovanni Boccia Artieri, President of the Association, explains: “Launching the call for the new artistic direction while we still have to unveil what is happening in the 50-year edition managed by Motus is part of that propensity for change which is in the DNA of the Festival. This edition was in fact imagined as a single act, a scenic gesture of exceptionality that leads us to look at the new three-year period 2021-2023. We have decided to select the new artistic direction so that she/he/they can fully experience the fiftieth edition, the city of Santarcangelo and begin to dive into the process that we have created over the years. An open call is a transparent way to stimulate proposals, to collect different energies, to discover possibilities that can be translated into visions and new projects.”
