The centerpiece of Live Cinema Festival 2020 program takes place from 9th to16th October in the Sala Ellittica of the Acquario Romano – Casa dell’Architettura that hosts 16 artists with 12 international scale live performances of live cinema, thanks to a special set-up, a majestic 20 × 5 meter projection that will follow the elliptical curvature of the Hall.
Each evening performance is preceded by the Symposium on “What is synesthesia?”, a meeting in which authors, curators and artists of international standing are invited to discuss the topic of synaesthesia and the relationship between sound and image
Before each performance, it is also possible to enjoy the video installation “Machine for Living” by the canadian artist Sabrina Rattè, a series of videos that investigate the architecture of the new cities and the brutalist residential buildings around Paris.
Furthermore, the Sala Ellittica, from Sunday 11 to Wednesday 14 October, hosts a special section dedicated to Italian artists, Live Cinema Made in Italy.
The educational experience of Live Cinema Festival enriches the program: on October 9, start the workshops, curated by Algo:Ritmi, lasting 4 days each for a total of 16 hours in total, on Digital Storytelling and Virtual Reality.
