Performing Arts in Urban Space




Margine Operativo

Margine Operativo (Operating Margin) is a multidisciplinary artistic project / company.
It is active in the spheres of theatre, performance arts and video.
Since its early stages, Margine Operativo took on a multiform nature that pushed it to engage with various dimensions of artistic and cultural production. It is in the group’s DNA to think of arts as a device that can trigger change and strive for connections with other projects /artists/spaces. Margine Operativo each year produces the multidisciplinary festival Attraversamenti Multipli ( 2001 – 2015).

Attraversamenti Multipli

Attraversamenti Multipli (Multiple Crossovers) is a multidisciplinary festival ( theatre-dance-performances-music-comics-video–street art). Attraversamenti Multipli investigates relations and interferences between contemporary artistic languages and the present, by proposing artistic events in unusual urban spaces in the city of Rome. From 2001 to 2014 Margine Operativo organised the festival. Attraversamenti Multipli hosted dozens of artists from both the Italian and international contemporary scene. With a special focus on the independent and “new” scene, the festival chose uncommon locations and organised workshops and conferences, reaching out to a wide and diversified audience. The festival’s mission is to bring performance arts in inhabited spaces and unusual areas, so as to interact with a vast variety of people and use such artistic actions to enhance the spaces themselves – seeing them in as spaces of life and relations.

A journey that is articulated through various narrative elements and techniques: from performing arts to nouveau cirque, dance and video art.

Urban Theatre can change commonly used venues, transforming them into meeting, playing and pondering places, leaving them pervaded of its atmosphere far beyond the real time of the performance. The distinctive feature of the festival is its multidisciplinary approach, with events that use techniques and specific languages or their mixture.
