Since 2015 ORME Festival is part of the Swiss network IntegrART, becoming the fourth international festival of the network, and aims to establish itself as a creative space where theatre and dance companies, made up of artists with and without disabilities, can express themselves and play.   


Different artists, with and without disabilities, coming from Switzerland, France, United Kingdom, Portugal, Reunion Island, Belgium and Australia.


The Fifth Edition of “ORME: Perché l’arte lascia un segno”, which will take place in Lugano on May 30-June 2, 2019 at Teatro/Spazio Foce and Sala Teatro LAC (Lugano Arte e Cultura), will lead a reflection on the meaning of the words “diversity”, “fragility” and “dignity”. During the Festival 4 days, will be featured different dance and theatre performances chosen by ORME Festival, as well as some productions created by some international and national companies, selected by the artistic directors of the network IntegrART, of which amongst others, 3 performances of integrated dance which, through different scenic ways, will question the forms power adopts while discriminating, celebrate life in its diversity and deconstruct the stereotypes of beauty such as shaped by Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man; as well as one danced conference leading the reflection on disability in all its shapes: social, symbolic, philosophic and poetic.


Danzabile is a professional theatre-dance company established in 2005 with the aim of integrating people with and without disabilities and helping them express their creative potential through a rigorous scenic research in which the theatrical and dance languages amalgamate and become tools giving voice and substance to the lived experience of everyone.
