Residencies Programme for Contemporary Dance and Performance
The call Citofonare PimOff supports national and international chorographical and performative research by hosting residencies for artists.
PimOff acts as collector and booster for emergent artists, rewarding unpublished artistic proposals.
Initially designed as an open call addressed to every sector of the performing arts, during its six editions, Citofonare PimOff has defined its focus on dance and performance, sectors that in the Italian context are more sacrificed than others. However, traces of its original form remain, as well as those of the diversified activity of Pim Spazio Scenico association; these traces reflect in a broad concept of dance and performance, a perspective that considers hybridization between knowledges and arts as an indispensable resource for reporting the complexity of our time.
