Eco logical theater fest

Theatre, music, dance and other encounters taking place under “the light of the sun and the other stars”

Every summer since 2013, the island of Stromboli (Aeolian islands, Italy) has been hosting the Eco Logical Theater Fest: a full week of events featuring artists and spectators from all over the world together with the island’s inhabitants and shared events that are all “unplugged”, meaning no electrical energy is used for lighting and sound.

The bodies of the spectators and the performers (actors, singers, musicians and dancers, in addition to writers, volcanologists, archeologists, geologists, astronomers, philosophers and other scholars) are all illuminated by the same light, i.e. by “the sun or other stars” as well as fire and candlelight. The performances featured in the Fest are all site-specific and do not make any use of electronic modification or acoustical amplification. The day after each event, spectators and performers are all invited to meet and chat at Bar Ingrid to discuss their impressions. During the long days of June (it doesn’t get dark until 9:30 at night), the Fest also offers seminars, courses and workshops for children focusing on ecological issues.

The Eco Logical Theater Fest is an “island” of unpolluted acoustics that offers an opportunity to put human beings back at the center of live performance as well as a chance to save energy. It is also a special occasion to visit and get to know Stromboli island in an original and eclectic way.

By following the events offered by the festival, you can see places and panoramas not always accessible to the public: not only natural sites such as caves, beaches, rocks, slopes, public places like churchyards, squares and jetties, but also private homes and terraces opened especially to the Festival and the people attending it.
