Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction is a project that won for three years (2019, 2020 and 2022) the Ministerial Call for Proposals “Boarding Pass Plus” (MiC) and made it possible to launch a series of actions to promote networking among operators and programmers of Youngsters’ Theatre, to foster the process of internationalisation of performances and to enhance the role of Italian artistic directors of festivals dedicated to childhood and youth.

The reflection initiated by the 6 partner festivals – Segni d’infanzia with SEGNI New Generations FestivalAssociazione culturale di promozione sociale Lagru (Sant’Elpidio – FM) with I Teatri del MondoFactory Compagnia Transadriatica and Principio Attivo Teatro (Lecce) with Kids festivalGiallo Mare Minimal Teatro (Empoli – FI) with Teatro fra le GenerazioniLa Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi (Bologna) with Visioni di Teatro, Visioni di futuroTeatro al quadrato (Tarcento – UD) with Trallalero/Festival – together with ASSITEJ Italia and in collaboration with  Liv.in.g. continues in 2023 with new exchange opportunities to enhance and continue networking, to find solutions to maintain effective international relations in times of pandemic and beyond.
