Biennale College Teatro: new call for applications for 2022-2023


The new calls for applications of the Biennale College Teatro are online on the La Biennale di Venezia website as of Tuesday 23 November 2021. The calls are part of the project of Artistic Directors Stefano Ricci and Gianni Forte (ricci/forte).

A new call is aimed at:

  • Performers (both from Italy and abroad) aged 18-40 for the production of two original creations to be performed outdoors and complying with the concept of the Festival in 2022: Red. The call will be open from 23 November 2021 to 17 January 2022


Two further calls for applications are aimed at Italian directors aged 18-35 and Italian authors aged 18-40.


The international call for applications dedicated to the performance was launched in 2020 for the first time, and now gets to the second edition. After the selection phase, two winners will be selected: they will develop their original outdoor performance in Venice and its environment, in compliance with the concept chosen for the next Biennale Teatro: Red. The development and production phase will have Stefano Ricci and Gianni Forte as tutors, and will come to an end with the presentation of the two performances at the Biennale Teatro 2022.

ricci/forte have declared: “Out of the necessity to build a performative gesture in everyday social environments, the theatrical act will settle in vital spaces reaffirming the sense of collectivity that art must bring to the people. We acknowledge the great interest that performative artists raise throughout the world today, so deeply connected as they are with Visual Arts, Music and Dance. La Biennale di Venezia thus considers it important and necessary to invite international artists to deal with a type of scenic writing – such as the site-specific performance – that is particularly suitable for the narrative of contemporary issues”.


Biennale College is a project integrating all the departments of La Biennale di Venezia – Art, Cinema, Dance, Music, Theatre – for the promotion of young artists who can work with acknowledged Masters on the production of their original creations.

Biennale College Teatro is realised by La Biennale di Venezia with the support of the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali  Direzione Generale dello Spettacolo and the Regione del Veneto.

Cambrian College Works With Honeywell To Continue Its Campus Sustainability Efforts

Cambrian College, the leading post-secondary institution in Northern Ontario, and Honeywell (Nasdaq: HON) announced the next phase of a comprehensive performance contract project designed to reduce carbon emissions and utility costs and provide a safer experience for staff and students.

The improvements, implemented through an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), are projected to support the college’s sustainability commitment by replacing aging equipment and updating lighting. The work is projected to save the college at least $480,000 within the first year. The energy and operational savings achieved by the new measures are guaranteed by Honeywell and will help self-fund the project.

“A leading mission of Cambrian College is our commitment to reduce our carbon impact,” said Kristine Morrisey, vice president International, Finance and Administration, Cambrian College. “This project will allow us to do just that. We anticipate the project will reduce approximately 300 tons of greenhouse gasses a year, which is the equivalent of removing close to 100 medium-size cars from the road every year. In addition, the project is supporting the modernization of our campus, in both its digital and physical space, which ultimately will provide our students and faculty an improved education environment.”

Honeywell first began work with Cambrian College in 2011 and the next project phase includes:

  • Geothermal heating solution: Implementing an energy-efficient geoexchange system to provide supplemental heating and cooling sourced from the earth to create a better heat transfer medium than traditional air source systems. It will help offset boiler consumption in Cambrian’s Sustainable Energy Centre building’s water source heat pump lamp.
  • Upgraded LED lighting: Installing new smart interior lighting to understand space usage. In addition, new LED fixtures and lighting are being installed to improve energy savings.
  • High-efficiency chiller: Replacing end-of-life air-cooled chiller with a high-efficiency unit to help improve occupant comfort.
  • Building management system: Expanding and optimizing the campus’ Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) building automation system to further support energy conservation and create more comfortable learning environments.

“This project is another example of how Cambrian College is cementing itself as a leader in the field of technology education,” said Michael Pringle, Senior Business Consultant, Honeywell Building Technologies. “It has been an exciting project to partner with the college on over the last decade to develop unique ways to support their energy efficiency, technology and sustainability goals. Our current phase takes this to a new level as we break ground with a geothermal heating system and deploy solutions that will help improve the college for staff and students.”

Earlier this year, Honeywell pledged its commitment to achieving carbon neutrality in its own operations and facilities by 2035. Since then, Honeywell has announced sustainability initiatives with partners like Kunsan Air Base, Sydney Opera House and Port Esbjerg, to help reduce their carbon impact.
