OSA! Organico Scena Artistica
OSA! is an Association founded in 2006. It is made of 3 indipendent groups: Teatro dei Fauni (Figure- and Children’s Theatre ) Obviam Est (Choreographic theatre) and two vocal Formations directed by Oskar Boldre.
The non-stop programming offers shows from different areas of interest according to the time of the year: in spring and fall music and dance events mix in with the local touristic environment, while in the winter time Theatre prevails, with performances of young emerging companies and an important Children’s Theatre program.
World, jazz , folk Music and Dance from all parts of the world complete the scenery.
OSA! organizes every year three main events:
The first takes place in March, La donna crea, conceived by Santuzza Oberholzer, is a Festival of performances created by women on women’s themes.
Voci audaci , directed by Oskar Boldre, offers a variety of musical experiences, ranging from folk to pop, from classical to jazz, from experimentation to tradition, where the common thread is the most ancient and versatile instrument ever, i.e. the voice.
In September, directed by Martin Bartelt, OSA! la danza gives Ascona a place on the International Dance scene.
