The Festival has reached its sixth edition and presents itself as an awaited event;“Trieste per la danza – danza e dintorni contemporanei” has been realized by ArteffettoDanza Company creating a showcase of the most interesting Italian and international companies of "new dance".
And for the third consecutive year - thanks to the collaboration of the Regional Teatro Stabile - the show is hosted at the Politeama Rossetti, Sala Bartoli full of inductions, stimulating challenging and unusual "proximities" between artists and spectators.

Strong from the excellent reception that the proposals of “Trieste per la danza – danza & dintorni contemporanei” have obtained, the organizers then renew the appointment for the 2008 edition which presents itself worthy of attention: six evenings of entertainment, choreographers and dancers of high artistic value, a national first, a new solo product for the occasion by the ArteffettoDanza Company ...

The program was set out during a press conference that was held at the Politeama Rossetti Thursday, 3 April at 11.30 am in the presence of the artistic ArteffettoDanza director , Corrado Canulli, and of the managing director of the Stabile, Stefano Curti.

The festival will be inaugurated Friday ,11 April at 9 p.m. (repeated on Saturday, 12) by “Ritratti di cinema”, the CRDL / Company directed by Mvula Sungani, choreographer and dancer of African origin.
Follow - Wednesday, 21 May (22 replicates) again at 9 p.m. – “Tu che tagliavi fiori di polistirolo” solo by and with Valentina Moar and new production of the ArteffettoDanza Company.
To close the Festival will be a national first, “Stripped” of Zagreb Dance Company, scheduled for Saturday, 24 and Sunday, 25 May during the same time.

A quality program built with skill and refinement "Three different productions - points out Corrado Canulli - three different themes, three different styles with one common feature: to have

the body at the center of the scene with its several and fascinating possibilities of expression; feelings, memories, thoughts, everything will be showed by our interpreters. "
“Ritratti di cinema” in fact lives thanks to the suggestions of three film “Grido di libertà, Farinelli” and “Il cielo sopra Berlino” that the viewer will find in the execution of this ensemble of seven dancers which includes Emanuela Bianchini, the main performer and soloists Claudia Cavalli, Ilaria Palmieri, Ivana Cibin, Alessia Giustolisi, Vito Cassano and Salvatore Addis. The show marks a new collaboration for Trieste per la Danza 2008 with the Circuito Danza Friuli Venezia Giulia and it is a creation of Mvula Sungani, choreographer and dancer with African origin but trained in Rome with her company.

“Tu che tagliavi fiori di polistirolo” is a new production of particular interest created by ArteffettoDanza Company : Valentina Moar who is the creator and performer (as well as editor of the texts with Mauro Masia) is a fascinating interpreter of the international scene and this is the first experience as choreographer of her own shows. In the show will also stage the accordionist Claudio Favretto who, through a choreographic path full of suggestions, will talk about woman's self as the center and starting point from which you are born, you start and where sometimes you come back.

The last event of the festival – presented for the first time in Italy by the Zagreb Dance Company - uses the choreography of Snjezana Abramovic Milkovic. “Stripped” is an ironic show about our times and relations between men and women entering the role exchanges and gender with the aim of dispelling stereotypes. It will be interpreted by Sara Barbieri, Zrinka Lukcec, Andreja Siroki, Tomislav Kvartuc, Marin Lemic, Marko Milic, Nikola Oreskovic, Ognjen Vucinic.
