“Total Anastrophes”, the eighth edition of Volcano Extravaganza festival, is to begin on July 27, 2018 in Stromboli, on the occasion of the first total lunar eclipse after 2011, year of the festival first edition. Investigating collective memories through the spectacle of a theatre inside the volcano, the festival began last February in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on occasion of the Dhaka Art Summit.

Curated as usual by Milovan Farronato, this edition is titled after the  figure of speech of the “anastrophes”, in which words are moved and placed in an unconventional location within the same sentence, reverting the usual order and referring to a range of new potentialities arising from pre-existing elements.

The theatre inside the volcano will be the stage for a rich and eclectic  programme, including guests such as Runa Islam as artistic leader, Cecilia Bengolea, Alex Cecchetti, Alec Curtis, Patrizio Di Massimo, Haroon Mirza, Lydia Ourahmane, Tobias Putrih, Osman Yousefzada and Malala Andrialavidrazana. There will also be new contributions by Anna Franceschini and SAGG Napoli.
