Since more than thirty-five years, Centrale Fies investigates the evolution and mutations of lve arts without limiting its own research to a specific genre but opening up its commitment to the various requests that artists bring up with no restriction in terms of media, language and genre. Taking on from artists' work, their needs and urgencies, Centrale Fies has created projects supporting new generations of artists (Fies Factory), collecting tracks of art-works of ephemeral nature (Fies Collection) and presenting established artists that haven't had the opportunity to present their work in Italy (Festival Drodesera). Centrale Fies has also initiated LIVE WORKS, a platform of different live arts practices which supports the production, discussion and development of nine works by nine different young artists that are selected through an international call. Besides the considerable amount of artists coming for a residency at Centrale Fies, there is a steady number of artists that are part of the programme of Resident Artists. Furthermore, Centrale Fies is part of two important European networks like APAP and Urban Heat network in order to promote the divulgation, production and importance of performing arts. Centrale Fies is both an ideal project for the development of artistic pursuit and a physical venue, capable of transforming itself as needed, which is a still working hydroelectric factory never stopping generating electricity.
