Selection of performances for Opera Prima Festival XVIII





The Object of the Call

This call for entries is opened to national and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre.

By experimental theatre we mean a work that truly experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space. 

In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing: 

the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors' training; a link that connects the actors to the project of the company.

Participation requirements

The call is opened to Italian and international individuals or groups of professional theatre and performing arts, structured in any legal form that allows them to fulfill the administrative and bureaucratic practices necessary to realize their performance. 

Only artistic projects that realize experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater and performances of entertainment won’t be selected.

The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and/or visibility. It is advisable to submit works no longer than 60 minutes.


The selected performances are going to be included in the 2022 edition of Festival Opera Prima.
All expenses and practices concerning the organization, communication, staff, promotion of the event will be in charge of the organization of the Festival.

At each selected company will be paid, after the presentation of an invoice, a fee that has to be agreed and will be guaranteed the possibility of lodging at an affiliated guesthouse (just for the people working in the performance). 

Calendar and PLACE of performance

All the performances are going to be realized in Rovigo inside the venues used by the Festival from the 16th to the 19th June 2022. It is possible to realize performances also in unconventional locations and outdoor. The artistic direction can ask the selected company to realize more replies of the performance.
