Festival Story:

Monica Secco and Alessandra Bentley for more than two years have solved every logistical and organizational aspect of this important manifestation—as well as the artistic choices. Both women are attracted by curiosity, to introduce and to work with young choreographers. Each November-December a festival of extremely dynamic fusion occurs between the dancers who have the advantage of working with the participating national and international artists. They all speak the same universal language—movement, gestures, and theatricality. Turin is just a single aspect of the Festival—the festival also reaches France and Lione. Alessandra Bentley and Monica Secco have succeeded to create a collaboration with the French coreographer Michel Hallet Eghayan. From this cooperation the French and the Italians enjoy an artistic and cultural exchange between their nations.
