CROSS Residence is a project of artistic residences that insists on contemporary performing languages. It comes from the experience of the Festival Villaggio d’Artista and the success of the CROSS Award project which, from 2015 to date, has collected over 600 applications from over 30 European and non-European countries. Starting from 2018 the CROSS project has been renewed and obtained an important recognition thanks to a joint intervention by the Ministry and the Piedmont Region for the three-year period 2018-2020.

CROSS Residence wants to become a point of reference for the performing arts, contributing to the international debate, whose fundamental assumptions must be today the continuous research towards the linguistic experimentation and the responsibility towards the social context in which it is born.
Thanks to the possibility of developing artistic residences all year round, including involving citizenship and the city, urban spaces and specific target audiences (young people, asylum seekers, vulnerable groups, over 60s, women, etc.), CROSS Residence becomes a window always open to the world, to experimentation and research, thus becoming a real kaleidoscope of experiences.

CROSS Residence privileges innovative artistic processes based on transversal languages ​​and contemporary visions. It supports the work of artists and performers and is a project in constant evolution. The project is curated by Antonella Cirigliano and Tommaso Sacchi and each year makes use of a group of Tutors who make their skills available to the artists and support the creation process.
The project will take place in a new and exceptional context, Casa Elide Ceretti in Verbania and will also involve other public spaces, the Theater Il Maggiore, Villa Giulia and naturalistic spaces.
