Now in its seventh edition the CANTIERE project intends to become a path of accompaniment to the production for young artists and companies of Puppet Theater with the aim of further promoting this kind of theatre in Italy, investing in a more structured and continuous way in the creativity and professionalism of young companies, following them in the creation of shows ready to be distributed, with a view to generational change.

Unlike previous editions CANTIERE intends to offer not only spaces of visibility but constant support to production with moments of meeting, discussion and verification. Seven festival partners for this initiative will be tutors and accompany the companies in the various phases of realization of the selected projects.
Deadline for request of participation: 6th July 2018 ATTENTION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 13 JULY 2018

For the fourth consecutive year INCANTI proposes the CANTIERE project. The theme of CANTIERE 2015 is the relationship between Puppet Theatre and Literature. In collaboration with the Holden School in Turin, there will be a special workshop on "Writing for the Puppet Theatre", and around 10 scripts will be written by the end of March 2015. Companies interested in participating in Cantiere 2015 will choose a script which they will stage in collaboration with the author. They will be required to draft a project for a performance and send it to the artistic direction of Incanti, which will select 4 projects from those submitted. These four projects will materialize in studies with a maximum duration of 30' and a minimum of 20' and will be presented as part of the 2015 Incanti programme. A jury will select one of the studies presented and this will receive a prize of € 1,000 and will also be included in the programmes of the following festivals: The other face of Theatre (Cagliari), IF OFF (Milan) and Schegge³ (Turin). The jury will be composed by representatives of the artistic direction of INCANTI, the Holden School, Fondazione Teatro Ragazzi e Giovani onlus, Teatro Verdi of Milan; the companies Il Cerchio di Gesso, Is Mascareddas; media partner Krapp's Last Post.
