From 23 September to 1 October 2022, opening 22 September at 18.00 will take place in Palermo, and at BAPS in Palazzo Merlo, The TILTED BODY International Festival of Performance art conceived and curated by Lori Adragna with the assistance of Miriam Pinocchio. The Festival is part of the BAM Biennale of the Mediterranean archipelago directed by Andrea Cusumano, created with the Merz Foundation and the MeNO Association, now in its third edition.

For the BAM performance and video performance review, paths and suggestions were chosen primarily related to the very concept of the Mediterranean as a place of exchange and welcome as well as a melting pot of cultures. To this is added the notion of "Unsaturated" - the theme of this edition - evoking the image of a container of in-depth studies on contemporaneity starting from artistic research and some extremely topical topics such as ecology and activism, sustainability, environmental impact, loss / reappropriation of the body and identity following the pandemic emergency.
The program will develop in some macro-areas dictated by the themes chosen starting from 22 September with the inauguration of the festival and the BAPS space, continuing in the following three days, in which a macro theme will be analyzed between Loss of ego, Immigration and Sustainability.
