New 2015  edition of Move Off Festival, organized by MOTUS in collaboration with Comune di Castelnuovo Berardenga and with Comune di Siena.
The news, this year,  is represented by the transformation of the Festival from a “fixed location festival” to a “moving festival” and by the introduction of live music as a main characteristic of the performances, thanks to the MOTUS collaboration with musicians and composers of international level.
