AN ACCESSIBLE FESTIVAL


Oriente Occidente Dance Festival and CID - Centro Internazionale della Danza's doors have never been so open!

For a few years the festival and CID are committed to inclusive projects, where artists with and without disability create together unique shows, with a new aesthetic, promoting research into the rich aesthetic and artistic variety that diversity can offer audiences.

But not only, both of them want to give an audience with different abilities the possibility to participate to the events.

Subpacs - innovative audio-touch instruments born in the United States - are available to Oriente Occidente Dance Festival thanks to the collaboration with Virtual Gaming Italia, the first center in Italy for 3D experiences.
