On the border between history and legend, it is said that San Vito lo Capo was born thanks to sailors who, by losing weight, thrown into the waves of the stormy sea, landed as far as the extreme tip of Sicily. Even street performers and circus performers, eternal explorers, guided by the wind and the desire of an audience that they can provide magic and poetry, arrive this year at the Borgo Marinaro di San Vito, which gives life to “Naviganti”.
From Friday the 17th to Sunday the 19th of June, a circus team arrives in San Vito lo Capo to bring to life “Naviganti”, the first Buskers Festival in the village with a maritime tradition.The tuff blocks that illuminate the historic squares, the scent of salt, the fuchsia bougainvillea that climbs onto the balconies, the curtains by the doors that are moved by the sea breeze, the inhabitants who sit in front of the houses looking for coolness, and the children play in the alleys. All the beauty of San Vito lo Capo’s simplicity is ready to welcome the magic that only street artists, inside their shabby suitcases, can carry.The first Buskers Festival in San Vito Lo Capo is organized by the municipal administration, which strongly wanted and promoted it, with the executive production of the Cantiere7 association and the artistic management entrusted to Riccardo Strano.«We are happy to host an event that mixes art, music and circus traditions – declares Mayor of San Vito Lo Capo Giuseppe Peraino and Councilor for Tourism Nino Ciulla -.
Our coastal town will be an open-air theater that will host performances by various artists, giving a different breath to what is classical entertainment. We want to amaze young and old with an event that is in its first edition, but which has already been born with the ambition of becoming a constant appointment in the coming summers of San Vito. In three days waders, trapeze artists, jugglers, clowns, professional acrobats will animate five fields amidst excitement and laughter. “If we look at the horizon, we can not see the future that awaits us well – explains artistic director Riccardo Strano – for this reason, it is as if we were all on our way to a new world that bears the mark of a difficult past.
The artists who arrive in San Vito Lo Capo take on this very task of giving voice to a collective feeling and rewriting it in a new narrative, a common story that will transport the public between the waves of the imagination. Among the companies that will perform there are from Argentina, “Cia Self-Supporting “ with their love story told over a tight thread, the playmaker “Burza “ with the soft rope, “Sbadaclown“very clown acrobats and many others.
But the special show will be “Eradicate“: Four young circus performers from Italy and France will perform in front of the fortress between acrobatics on a ladder and aerial acrobatics will try to surf on the San Vito stage.” Cantiere7 was born in 2010 – he explains Sheila Melosu, President of the Shipyard Association 7– with the desire to spread the lesser known part of the seventh art: documentary and author cinema. The ideas born on the street tell the world and condemn its contradictions.
It is with the same wish and in the context of the film festival Siciliambiente – which in a few days will be held right here in San Vito lo Capo the 14th edition – that we have decided to arrange Naviganti: give space to young artists to tell the story of their point of view on this difficult historical moments that we go through, but with the opportunity to leave the public, even the little ones, with a smile and a little joy ».BUSKERS FESTIVAL NAVIGATION PROGRAMFRIDAY JUNE 17H.21.00 – Villetta FaroSbadaclown in the Great Circus ShowH.21.30 – Piazza SantuarioWipe Out with Danilo Alvino, Simon Aravena, Silvia Cunsolo and Valeria CultreraH.22.00 – Lungomare del Cous cousCia Self-supporting in Out of NatureSATURDAY 18 JUNEH.19.00 – Villetta FaroSbadaclown in a big circus show H.20.30 – Villetta FaroBurza in Three for One From 21.00 The traveling wader through the streetsH.21.00 – Lungomare del Cous cousCia Self-sufficient in Outside the NaturalH.21.30 – Cusen Stracacard in Something StranoH .21.30 Piazza SantuarioWipe Out with Danilo Alvino, Simon Aravena, Silvia Cunsolo and Valeria CultreraH.22.00 – Piazza MarinellaSbadaclown in a Great Circus ShowH.22.30 – Lungomare del Cous cousCia Self-sufficient in Pi3za.
