Music, theater, contemporary dance and circus, painting and photography exhibitions, arts and crafts, live painting and street art shows, showings, installations, readings and video art shows will combine together to give life to a fantastic performance at Planet (Rome), the historic home of the festival from the time when it was still called Alpheus (at via del Commercio 36)
The concept of the event, from the first edition, is a total exhibition where arts and actors merge themselves in a unique empathic synergy, despite of are separated by a physic and logistic distance.
The idea of Peppe Casa, founder and art director, was to create a mix of the single performances in a harmonic manner. After fifteen years from the origins, that thread is still tense.
"The difference and the strength of the format is the ability, for every event, to create a unique show that could charme people offering a unique experience. Is very difficult to follow the multidisciplinary nature of the show; maybe the real success is the balance among arts; the exclusive thing is to make it every time in a new and surprising way. "
Hybridization is the keyword of an event where music can paint and a painting is played, the dance is drawn and the circus show is recited. MArteLive is the round dance of the muses and the exchange between aesthetic languages: all the artistic sections are skillfully blended in a game of artistic forces and balances that, show after show and room after room, create unique emotions in their essence.
