Poetic Invasion of the Cities (PIC)

The voting for the artists at LA STRADA 2018 is not possible anymore.

POETIC INVASION OF THE CITIES (PIC) is a project that is being realised together with the Teatrul National Radu Stanca (RO), the Veregra Street Festival (IT) und Open Street aisbl (BE) under the management of the city Montegranaro. PIC uses the qualities of professional street arts to go innovative ways in production, accessibility and reception. As a multi-disciplinary project PIC includes all kinds of art and interprets them in new ways. New forms of open air art are staged in unusual settings.


The project will take place within the next three years and includes several types of actions:


Accessibility:

The shows are accessible for anyone interested and take place in different places in the participating cities. The participating festivals show a separate PIC programme. Furthermore, there will be a European showcase festival for performing arts.


Sharing: 

A professional network of the participating festivals and local institutions initiate interventions in public space. The inclusion of the audience and unusual settings are part of the project.


Digitalisation:

Promotion of the digital approach in the sector. The audience can actively participate in a voting via QR Codes on the PIC website in order to enable one of the groups to participate in a festival of another European country.


Education:

Within the context of interdisciplinary workshops, techniques of urban performing art are taught and, following the European idea, international cooperation is promoted. 


POETIC INVASION OF THE CITIES in Bremen:

We are very happy to be a part of the PIC programme with LA STRADA. Before the festival in 2018, there had already been two workshops with international teachers. Exclusively for the project we had invited artists to Bremen that performed in special, rarely used places. At the next edition of LA STRADA, you will once again be invited to vote for your favourite artist, using the QR codes. You can find them next to the artists in the programme brochure and on the website. All participating artists will also be listed here in due time. You can also vote by clicking on this link: www.poeticinvasion.eu/bremen/ 

The winning groups will be invited to one of the participating festivals  in the following year. Thus, you can contribute to the spreading of exceptional street arts that will be watched by more and more people in Europe. 


These are the artists performing within the context of PIC at LA STRADA 2018:



CATERINA MORONI with UNHABITANTS | TO MAKE ROOM FOR US


Italy | Audiowalk


How does the thought of death affect our lives? This performance deals with mortality as the basis of behaviour patterns and ethical systems. Visitors are invited to explore their perception spaces on an audiovisual walk through Buntentor Cemetery. It is in the border zone between one’s own perception and the artistic vision where one has to construct one’s own reality. The rational merges with the irrational. UN.HABITANTS inspires life in the now and allows a change of perspective towards the “taboo subject” of death.

DUO KAOS with TIME TO LOOP


Italy | Acrobatics


TIME TO LOOP is all about the bike. Two acrobats use a bicycle to present a story full of movement, transformation and poetry. Impressively, both acrobats try to transform the spinning chaos into harmony. Something is always on the move, though. And little by little, they realize that no one can replace the other, and that they can only exist in equilibrium. Only together do they succeed in creating the perfect “LooP”.

STEFANO DI RENZO with HOLD ON


Italy | Acrobatics


HOLD ON tests the laws of gravity and counterbalance to their utmost limits. STEFANO DI RENZO experiments not only with everyday objects but does not even stop at himself. How far can he go? All that keeps him on his rope is a weighted bucket – or he himself. If he lets go, he’ll fall ... let go – let in – let out – let happen – that’s the question.
