The ARTONOV Festival is inspired by the international movement of Art Nouveau, both for its philosophy and for its implementation. Its objective is to generate a convergence between the performing arts, such as music, dance, theatre, fashion and visual arts, promoting interdisciplinary collaboration.
The theme of this 5th edition is “The intuition of the gesture”. The gesture of an artist’s body movement is the starting point of the performance. They carry the intuition of the entire work and its creative power. The body is the common denominator, an essential interdisciplinary element.
The name ‘ARTONOV’ is a pun which defines the vision of the festival. With an Eastern European consonance, it invites us to travel through Art Nouveau by the establishment of a bridge between the centuries and the arts, where innovation becomes a way to build a future together. It revolves around the following:
ART: convergence of the arts, providing a coherent dialogue without falling in an amalgam.
O: the festival itself, the bridge that brings visual arts, performing arts, space arts, fine arts and the arts of music together for a complete and balanced symbiosis around Art Nouveau.
NOV: young emerging artists as a force to invest in the future, united with the use of new technologies as well as with the opportunity to travel the road of European Art Nouveau cities.
