The Total Show

MArteLive is a renowned festival-competition born in Italy in 2001. Its “Total Show” format involves the overlap and succession of several live performances of 16 artistic disciplines: music, theater, dance and contemporary circus, exhibitions of painting and photography, artistic crafts, graphic art, live painting and street-art, projections, installations, reading and video-art to create a single performance, almost simultaneously, in a single location. Today MArteLive has a strong identity as an incubator of youth creativity and a leader in generating multidisciplinary shows formats.
