Live Arts Week
Genre live arts
Location(s) Bologna
Organized by Xing[1]

Live Arts Week[2] is a project by Xing, born in 2012 out the fusion of the experiences of the two Bologna festivals (2000>2011): Netmage - International Live Media Festival and F.I.S.Co. - Festival Internazionale sullo Spettacolo Contemporaneo. Live Arts Week takes place in Bologna, Italy, once a year, and it is developed throughout one week in different locations and settings in town.


Live Arts Week intensifies a weave between disciplines and forms of expression, and cohabitation between artists and audiences from different backgrounds. Focused on live arts, it offers a program that reflects an idea of art as experience made of temporalities, postures and the imaginaries.

The decision to launch the new event as 'week-long' is an attempt to break away from the concept of a festival as a consumer point in the cultural life of a city.

The program allows the visitor to cross a number of world-spaces created by important personalities in international and contemporary research. The set-up suggests a citywide event, divided into a schedule of events, performances, shows, concerts and live media with unique dates, productions and premières.

GIANNI PENG, a name that will accompany the festival in its organic growth, indicates the time of these transitions. It is a phenomenon, not a person: a new identity, unlikely but real, to be treated as an abstract concept.
