Performing Arts Festival



Lenz Foudation’s Artistic Direction welcomes Visual & Performing Arts proposals for the 2018 edition of Natura Dèi Teatri Festival, which will take place in Parma, Italy, from June 18th to July 6th.

The theme concept of the three-year period 2018-2020 is Touching. Inspirations from Jean-Luc Nancy, divided in Tender in 2018, Smooth/Striated in 2019 and Effort in 2020.

The Artistic Directors Francesco Pititto and Maria Federica Maestri suggest: «Touching is essential to experience, to knowledge and to the affective relationship, and yet today we touch less both things and people. For Jean-Luc Nancy, existence is a body, there is no other evidence than that of the body: “Our existence is touch: we touch each other as we exist. Our touch is what makes us “(J.L. Nancy, Plural singular Being, 1996)».
