Asia-Europe Cultural Festival: 2024 Edition | Partnership unveiled

Asia-Europe Cultural Festival - Partnership announcement

ASEF is delighted to announce a new partnership with Oriente Occidente Dance Festival for the 6th edition of the Asia-Europe Cultural Festival. The festival will be held for the first time in Italy, in the city of Rovereto, at the beginning of September 2024, along side the Oriente Occidente Dance Festival. 

Founded in 1981 in Rovereto, Italy, Oriente Occidente is an open cultural institution, which believes in the practice and culture of dialogue. Oriente and Occidente (East and West) are poles of an ideal path of exchanges and intersections not only between cultures, but between languages of the contemporary scene as well. Its main activity is the Oriente Occidente Dance Festival, a well-established reality that represents one of the most important Italian multidisciplinary festivals known all over Europe for the past 20 years.

Through this partnership, the Asia-Europe Cultural Festival aims to present a diverse programme celebrating the diversity and creativity of Asian and European artists and to new connections with international cultural sector and local arts communities.

The festival programme will include dance, film, installations, video art and music performances showcasing the immense artistic talents from the Philippines, Singapore, Germany, Belgium, Malaysia, Viet Nam, Italy, UK, India, amongst others.

Together with Oriente Occidente, the 6th Edition of the festival will celebrate the vibrant tapestry of human creativity, inspire dialogue, and forge connections that transcend borders.

Stay tuned for the release of the full programme in June 2024.
