Kilowatt Festival 2021, This Fervid Patience

16.07.2021 00:00 - 24.07.2021 23:59

Kilowatt Festival will take place from 16 to 24 July 2021 and is a festival dedicated to emerging companies of the contemporary scene (theater, dance, performing arts, music, literature, visual arts), which takes place in Sansepolcro. The project was conceived in 2003 and led to the birth of the Visionaries, an increasingly numerous group of theater enthusiasts who select some shows that will make up a part of the Festival program.

With this edition, Kilowatt Festival wants to celebrate the patience of artists, technicians, organizers, administrators, communications workers, volunteers and even spectators, who kept theater, dance, circus and music alive, just when it seemed impossible. As Luca Ricci, creator and artistic director of Kilowatt festival explains, “the title from which we start, this fervent patience, wants to tell the expectation that all of us have experienced in this year and a half and the desire not to stand still and put try creativity, even in the difficulties of the moment “.

The program is divided into many daily appointments full of new trajectories and possibilities.
