BILOURA Intercultural Arts Collective
Born in Italy in 2013, BILOURA is an intercultural and transdisciplinary performing arts collective, composed by artists of various professional backgrounds that works with a g-local strategy between Italy and the world.
BILOURA creates cultural projects emphasising the richness of cultural diversity in order to overcome barriers, labels, prejudices and metaphysical prisons. BILOURA leads an artistic path of innovation of scenic languages and its performances, workshops, projects and various other activities are presented within the international circuits of performing arts.
BILOURA deals with issues of political relevance and social inclusion within thematic projects, seeking for each of them an appropriate and peculiar artistic language, also capable of communicating beyond the differences in language and cultural origin. It is in this context BILOURA developed its methodology of artistic creation and innovation: Cross Culture Performing Arts.
The artistic work of BILOURA wants to encourage the encounter with oneself and the other within the variety of cultural expressions. It is an artistic and political action for a less fearful, less hateful and divided global society.
