Romaeuropa Festival confirms its presence with a new program rebuilt according to the directives in force on distancing on stage and in theatres and full compliance with security measures.
From 18 September to 15 November, the festival presents a rich international program hosted in 14 different locations (two halls of the Auditorium Parco della Musica, Teatro Argentina and Teatro India, six spaces of Mattatoio, two of the MAXXI - National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, Teatro Vascello, Teatro Quarticciolo and Villa Medici - Academy of France) and partly outdoor, for over 62 events and 141 days of entertainment in line and continuity with REf usual standards.
The event will be enriched with the new activities of EXTRACT, the original online section with 40 events conceived for the web, live streaming and a weekly show schedule curated by the festival staff.
With strong support for Italian companies, independent artists and a significant effort to guarantee a relevant international presence, the REf20 confirms its vocation and renews its vision of the present through the various looks of contemporary creation, with a marked generational turnover and 70% of the artists performing for the first time at the festival.
