Rooted Moon International Theatre and Arts festival.
Rooted Moon was founded in 2015 by a group of trained actors and theatre makers from the prestigious British institution “East 15 Acting School”. The company had humble beginnings, with the intention of forming a network of artists, and offering them a space to try out new work.
Over time, a formula has been developed to bring young artists of various disciplines to Sardinia, where the festival offers scenic backdrops in beautiful local towns. We pride ourselves in bringing value to places historical importance, and transforming them into an artistically stimulating space, which becomes a welcoming environment for audiences of locals, tourists and artists.
In 2018, Rooted Moon took over the historical town centre of Castelsardo.
We want to continue giving artists the opportunity to perform on an international platform, attempting to break the language barriers between different nationalities, and revealing that theatre and art can be used as a worldwide language to educate, inform and entertain.
The festival is a hub of various practices, and aims to introduce the spectators to new forms of entertainment; merging together various disciplines and bringing the city to life.
We are so passionate about this project, and after a response that exceeded all expectations, we are aiming for another fantastic year in 2018!
Working with the Community
Offering opportunity to local youth and established artists.
Our aim, as trained theatre makers, is to introduce the various age groups to a general theatre making skill set, enabling them to learn through working with a physical approach to theatre, beating the language barriers between them and their workshop leaders; helping them to build confidence by developing their personal skills.
