During the second focus, 18th Festival: Vectors And Inflexions, guests discuss issues pertaining to the shows featured in this edition of the Festival, and the core themes of the programs Southern Panoramas and 30 years.
The South is currently defined by moving boundaries, which give rise to new territorial experiences. Its megacities, networks, and informal groupings are tension fields that irradiate and harbor displacements, reshaping the notions of belonging and identity. Artists featured in the Southern Panoramas show discuss the power and the complexity of these rearrangements. Featuring Akram Zaatari, Lais Myrrha, Morgan Wong, Mahardika Yudha / Mediator: Moacir dos Anjos.
