LIVE WORKS is a platform created in 2013 to contribute to the expansion of the performance idea, following its continuous development. The nine projects selected as a result of this competition will be invited to participate in the Residence in July 2020 (Northern Italy).

Artists and artists from anywhere in the world, without age restrictions, in person or in a group, will be able to participate. The organizers view the performance in a broad sense - it includes new media, sound art, choreography and text practices, lectures, workshops, multimedia prioritization. There are long-term projects that require development or completion and for which the residence will be an evolution or the final chapter.
