Agropoli Danza Festival
Company: WADE Dance
Venue: Castello Angioino Aragonese
Location: Agropoli SA, Italy, SA
Agropoli Danza Festival is a festival dedicated to supporting gender equality through dance performances by internationally recognized artists, conversations and master classes open to the public. This project is aimed at elevating the voices of women artists and approaches the topic of gender-based violence from a global and inclusive perspective. The first annual Agropoli Danza Festival will take place July 23-25th, 2021 in Agropoli, Italy at the Castello Angioino Aragonese, a breathtaking performance venue in a UNESCO site.
The Agropoli Danza Festival is a direct response both to the increase in violence inflicted on the global female community during the Covid-19 lockdowns, and to the needs of the many unemployed artists. It will also provide a means for local economic recovery.
Our objectives for this project are to facilitate discussions, discourse, and dialogue around the topics of gender inequalities, address these issues that are happening right now, address how the COVID pandemic has affected these issues, and how we socialize our children — specifically young boys — around the topics of empathy. Overall, this project seeks to ignite productive dialogue through art.
