draculaFollowing the success of the 2012 edition, CANTIERE project comes back to the festival in collaboration with AIACE Turin and the National Museum of Cinema in Turin.

Companies and artists can present their work to the public of the festival in its twentieth edition, at the Casa del Teatro of Turin.

Incanti dedicates a part of the twentieth festival to the relationship between theater and cinema and for the CANTIERE section it proposes a reflection on the figure of Dracula. The figure of the vampire has inspired multiple interpretations: from John Polidori's Vampire to the contemporary Twilight saga, from Murnau's Nosferatu to the famous film by Francis Ford Coppola, from Mel Brooks to Polansky. As an iconic character in film history and in contemporary cinema, Dracula is suitable both in terms of thematic and image possibilities as a stimulus of possible new readings through Figure Theatre.

CANTIERE is also a contest: Incanti artistic direction in collaboration with Ajax Turin, Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin, Is Mascareddas, Fondazione Teatro Ragazzi e Giovani Onlus, Teatro del Buratto and theater magazine online Krapp's Last Post, will select one performance of CANTIERE project and award it with a financial reward as production support, and options for performing at other festivals.
