EN:EXPERIMENTA is a multi-code container, a brand under which artistic research itineraries have converged and made the most of the heritage of multiculturalism on an annual basis since 1999.
Spectacular experiences from different artistic disciplines: music comes first and also theatre, poetry and a permanent space dedicated to contemporary art.
EXPERIMENTA is one of the most important cultural events in the Province of Bari and strongly contributes to intercept a medium-high international tourist target from the larger urban areas. This event, followed by important local, national and international media, during its course gathered thousands of spectators, men and women, tourists and locals from all social backgrounds and ages and acted as a significant addition to the regional hospitality and tourist system.
The review EXPERIMENTA was born in 1999 and it has been continuously organized by A / HEROSTRATO, a cooperative of services for performing arts. The first thirteen editions of the festival took place in the Municipality of Alberobello, city of trulli and UNESCO World Heritage Site, then, for the next seven years, in the Municipality of Polignano a Mare.
Since 2021 the festival has developed a poly-centric formula with the city of Bari, the capital of the region, as main location.
The three-year project will allow further development of these actions. The idea is to decentralize the cultural proposal around prestigious sites in the area with a multidisciplinary and above all quality proposal between the month of May and the beginning of July with a view to seasonal adjustment.
An important section is dedicated to the female universe declined in different artistic expressions which will be accompanied by national premieres and new international productions.
