The 2020 festival opens with a journey to a magical island: Bouvetøya, the last place on earth

Julio Manrique has imagined an island where everything is possible, even making the invisible visible. The festival’s opening show endeavours to take the audience to a place where culture and knowledge are cared for and preserved as a treasure, valuable and fragile in equal measure. The director, inspired by Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451), Shakespeare (The Tempest) and other writers, welcomes the audience with a production that seeks to be an act of resistance and rebellion. A defence of what seems unnecessary until extraordinary events show that the intangible – such as culture and beauty – can also be a good of first necessity.
