Azalai is an innovative and itinerant laboratory for cultural experimentation. A moving platform that aims at creating a map of the present time connecting our continent with the ‘worlds of culture’ that populate it, with the new identities that are reflected in it, with the process of encounter and exchange that draw its territories and margins. Like on a travelling platform, the artists will work on the creation of ‘open’ productions and on the development of shared modalities of expression.
