BETWEEN LAND AND SEA is a political encounter and a programme of original artistic and theatrical productions developed and presented between Palermo, Tunis, and Bremen. It creates the first participatory and long-term artistic collaboration between the three port cities, acting as a bridge between Europe and the Maghreb and between the South and the North of Europe.

BETWEEN LAND AND SEA è un incontro politico e un programma di produzioni artistiche e teatrali originali sviluppato e presentato tra Palermo, Tunisi e Brema. Crea la prima collaborazione artistica partecipativa e a lungo termine tra le tre città portuali, agendo come un ponte tra l'Europa e il Maghreb e tra il Sud e il Nord dell'Europa.

BETWEEN LAND AND SEA engages more than 50 artists, workers, researchers, migrants, fishermen, farmers and citizens from Palermo, Tunis, Bremen, Beirut, New York, Abidjan, Berlin, Hamburg, Brussels, Dakar, Bamako to examine and critically reflect the existing connections between port cities and their intertwined histories, linked by global migration and trade. 

At a historical moment when humanity is facing unprecedented planetary challenges, artists, activists and citizens need to invent new ways to come together across borders and develop transnational and solidarity narratives. Port cities are privileged hubs for the creation of such cross-border networks. BETWEEN LAND AND SEA develops concrete transnational alliances, narratives and practices of solidarity to withstand future crises and disasters, such as desertification, conflicts arising from growing economic inequality, rising sea levels, displacement and global migration.

BETWEEN LAND AND SEA coinvolge più di 50 artisti, lavoratori, ricercatori, migranti, pescatori, agricoltori e cittadini di Palermo, Tunisi, Brema, Beirut, New York, Abidjan, Berlino, Amburgo, Bruxelles, Dakar e Bamako per esaminare le connessioni esistenti tra le città portuali e riflettere criticamente sulle loro storie intrecciate, legate da migrazione e commercio globali.

In un momento storico in cui l'umanità sta affrontando sfide planetarie senza precedenti, artisti, attivisti e cittadini hanno bisogno di inventare nuovi modi per unirsi attraverso i confini e sviluppare narrazioni transnazionali e solidali. Le città portuali sono centri privilegiati per la creazione di queste reti transfrontaliere. BETWEEN LAND AND SEA sviluppa alleanze transnazionali concrete, narrazioni e pratiche di solidarietà per resistere a crisi e disastri futuri quali la desertificazione, i conflitti derivanti dalla crescente disuguaglianza economica, l'innalzamento del livello del mare e la migrazione globale.
