The International Theatre Residencies

Name of Residency: Forest Art Park

We are preparing a program of artistic residencies at our farm in Umbria (www.podereconteracani.it). The goal is to create a “cultural reservation” that can host artists to create and exhibit their works in a path through the woods.

Residency Programme since: 2015
Description of Organisation:

The International Theatre is a Cultural Association founded in 1994. We principally operate in the field of theatre (dance, music) but we are working to open our spectrum also to other form of art. Is for that reason that we are now studying a new Residency Program to be launched in a natural space as a Farm in Umbria region where we have spaces (work studio and apartements) that can be used for these reasons. From here we would like to launch our innovative Forest Art Park.
