VIE is an international theatre, dance and performing arts festival, since 2005 inviting artists from all over the world to Modena and Italy’s Emilia-Romagna Region.

Organised by Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione and Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena, the Festival, now in its 10th edition, hosts some of the world’s leading contemporary theatre, dance and musical performers as well as young emerging groups who present their latest and most interesting productions (see above for previous editions).
The Festival’s artistic value and the vibrant atmosphere it creates draw large audiences every year. On its 10th anniversary, VIE Festival is now asking its public and performers, but also those who have never taken part or even never heard of us to give us their memory or their view of the VIE Festival in the form of a picture, painting, text, video or any other type of communication.
All entries will be collected in an album on the Festival’s website and Pinterest account; some will be shared on social networks or may be used by the press for promotion purposes; others will be published in the VIE’s booklet. All material must be authentic and all contributors must comply with the specifications indicated in the paragraph below entitled “Technical details and notes”. There will be prizes (Festival passes and books) for the best entries.

So, how about giving us your view of the VIE Festival?
