Biennale College Musica

Biennale College Musica

The new calls for the Biennale College Musica 2022 – addressed to young composers and performers from Italy and abroad between the ages of 18 and 30 years old – will be online starting today, Friday 26 November 2021, through Monday 31 January 2022, the deadline to apply.

Biennale College Musica 2022 is dedicated to experimental musical theatre, the theme chosen by the director Lucia Ronchetti for the 66th International Festival of Contemporary Music of La Biennale di Venezia (Out of Stage, 14 > 25 September 2022): “New musical theatre – states Lucia Ronchetti – has for decades invaded new types of spaces, leaving the historic stages to create different dramaturgical contexts, using new video technologies, virtual reality techniques and the spatialization of amplified sound, based on different dramaturgical forms specific to each project. The innate theatrical quality of the concert ritual is amplified, developing what Mauricio Kagel defined as instrumental theatre, a non-vocal sonic theatre, in which the instrumental gesture becomes performance and generates new characters and new stage presences”.


Deadline 31 January 2022
