5th Edition of THE HERITAGE NIGHT
17th September 2022
The Spanish World Heritage Cities Group is delighted to present on Saturday, September 17th, the fifth edition of THE HERITAGE NIGHT, an unprecedented world-class cultural and artistic event taking place simultaneously the same night in the 15 Spanish World Heritage Cities: Alcalá de Henares, Ávila, Baeza, Cáceres, Córdoba, Cuenca, Ibiza / Eivissa, Mérida, Salamanca, San Cristóbal de la Laguna, Santiago de Compostela, Segovia, Tarragona, Toledo and Úbeda.
THE HERITAGE NIGHT will join this year the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention of 1972 in collaboration with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and several World Heritage Associations
EUROPE’S LARGEST WORLD HERITAGE CELEBRATION
The fifth edition of Europe’s largest UNESCO World Heritage event will consist of three different sections:
- ABIERTO PATRIMONIO: Late-night opening hours of sites, museums and cultural spaces
- VIVE PATRIMONIO: Expanded cultural and leisure programme in the historic centres
- ESCENA PATRIMONIO: Contemporary Dance Festival in UNESCO Heritage sites
On the website www.theheritagenight.com you will find special selected contents portraying the best of the cultural heritage of the 15 World Heritage Cities.
Once again the HERITAGE NIGHT will also be available from home with live streaming of 15 performances by the most acclaimed Spanish artists presented in the unique setting of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the framework of the Dance Festival ESCENA PATRIMONIO
DANCE FESTIVAL ESCENA PATRIMONIO
Thanks to ESCENA PATRIMONIO and its artist-in-residence programmes, every year we offer to world-class choreographers the opportunity to live and work outside of their usual environments, providing them with time to reflect, research, or produce work site-specific and in situ pieces for our Cities using the World Heritage Sites as live platform for dance creations and workshops.
The Festival has been consolidating as an important decentralised platform for dance and a laboratory for site-specific creations.
2022’s edition on 17th September will be focusing on the concept of “legacy” and it will be dedicated to dance in all its forms and genres with a strong emphasis on conjugating traditional dance expressions with live music and a contemporary artstic approach.
Context activities and workshops are also organised to bring dance closer to citizens and visitors and most of the productions will require a community involvement engaging locals of all ages in the actual performances process.
The Festival has been collaborating with several international artists in the past editions and this year the focus will be set on Italian choreographers thanks to the support of the Istituto Italiano de Cultura in Madrid.
Thanks to the support of the Canarian Government and the programme CANARIAS CREA we will offer two artistic residencies to Canarian artists in Ubeda and Baeza.
The festival strives to become an international reference platform for artists willing to work site-specific in extraordinary heritage sites throughout the year and it is a significant opportunity for the Cities to re-think the long term social function of their inestimable heritage sites in constant dialogue with their inhabitants.
