We are happy to announce the participating artists for PAO Festival 2017!

For the Open Call to the PAO Festival 2017 we received 168 proposals from artists far and near. The process of choosing the 12 performances for the festival was difficult, but it was also inspiring to see so many amazing artists.
All selected artists will be notified this week, and the final line up published by the end of the month.
We will keep all the proposals in our archives to be reconsidered for future PAO Festivals.
To all the artists: thank you for your interest in PAO Festival and for taking time to send in your proposal.
