“Live Cinema” is the narrative technique applied to performance video that gives life to the simultaneous creation of sounds and images in real-time, a term used to define all those live shows that combine audio and video.
Artists, musicians and directors from all over the world create and fine-tune flawless and unforgettable performances every year, and in Italy, there is an event that more than any other celebrates this art form, the Live Cinema Festival.
Tomorrow sees the opening of the eighth edition of the festival, which from 23 to 26 September will completely transform the stunning location offered by Palazzo Brancaccio in Rome. The palace’s courtyards will become the stage for live performances, talks, screenings, workshops and symposia held by professionals from over 10 different countries.
Forget the classic shows and performances and get ready to immerse yourself in atmospheres that will touch the deepest chords of your soul with the aim of communicating and arousing different emotions.
The ice will be broken on Thursday 23 September by Mia Makela with the lecture “In The Beginning There Was Light”, which will pave the way for the first two live shows by Canadian Herman Kolgen and Frenchman Benjamin Bardou respectively. Later on it will be time for the first Italian artist, Franz Rosati, who will present for the first time “Latentscape” with which he will let us discover virtual landscapes and territories.
Among the appointments on Friday 24th there is the unmissable Italian premiere of SECTIVE, a project born from the minds of Michaelias and Arno Deutschbauer, also known as Dear-No, who will fascinate the public with the performance entitled “[daːzaɪn]” which deals with the themes of the link between the human body and digital and virtual spaces.
The Live Cinema Festival weekend continues with a busy programme of immersive experiences of different kinds, from the English duo Overlap with its “minimalist melodic music” accompanying the images to the Italian Camilla Pisani who investigates and explores the concept of love proposed by Simone de Beauvoir who defined it as “a superior form of personal freedom and regeneration of social relations”.
The appointments are designed to fill all four days and allow spectators to be completely enveloped by the spectacularity of Live Cinema. Discover the entire schedule on the official Live Cinema Festival website and follow the Instagram profile for all the updates.
