TRY was born in Lucca (Italy), a city of historical importance, a destination for international tourism, a crossroads for artists who find here a fertile context to combine the beauty of the territory and different cultural stimuli. In this context, TRY is an opportunity to feed the contemporary culture of the arts of movement in an international and updated perspective, capable of interacting with the local community.
TRY’s Artistic Director is Marta Coronado, internationally renowned teacher, former dancer of Rosas (Brussels), coreographer and Co -Director of La Faktoria Choreografic Center (Spain); Project Manager is Elisabetta Fiorini, teacher at Lucca’s Liceo Artistico Musicale and Director of Fuoricentro Danza. The opportunity for this collaboration and the idea to start this project was stimulated by the renovation of a new space entirely dedicated to dance and contemporary arts in Lucca: Motore 592.
