Concerts and DJ sets at the Pecci Center: two months of music in the museum's open-air theater

Two months of outdoor music in the theater of Prato's Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art. Centro Pecci Summer Live returns with a bill of concerts and DJ sets.

In the Outdoor Theater of the Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art, Centro Pecci Summer Live returns: two months of outdoor music with live concerts and DJ sets. Every Thursday from June 10 to July 21, the museum presents live events to return to experience the Center’s spaces as a town square, open to the multiple languages of art.

Six DJ sets with free admission are planned, starting June 10, which will feature on stage the Roman collective Industria Indipendente, which pursues alongside theater production a path of hybrid formats through which it aims to activate a sense of community and alliance between individual and collective identities. On June 16 it will be the turn of Thomas Costantin, resident DJ of the historic Plastic club in Milan and musical consultant for numerous high fashion houses, while on June 23 there will be a performance by Luwei, a DJ from the Chinese underground club scene and resident of Radio Raheem Milan, whose sets explore territorial sounds and geographical influences.

It continues on June 30 with Imaginaries. Habitats of Resistance curated by Jermay Michael Gabriel and in collaboration with The Recovery Plan: an evening, starting at 6 p.m., featuring workshops, cooking, live performances and DJ sets dedicated to the creation of a space of reclamation and resistance, with the aim of exploring issues of decolonization of museum institutions and imagining, in a critical and choral way, new future perspectives capable of making the museum a laboratory of reflection and public reference. The evening will open with Pape Diaw’s workshop, continuing with Nnamdi Nwagwu’s Labels dance performance, Ian Ssali ’s piano concert, and sets by DJ Condoii, Plethor X and Xaxer. On July 7, transfeminist queer platform Tomboys don’t cry talks about post-identitarian adventures in the Club perimeter, including metaphorical ones. The festival concludes on July 21 with Roman DJ and producer Hugo Sanchez, a historical figure in independent cultural production.

Instead, from July 11 to 15, the Pecci Summer Live Center will offer five concerts (tickets on the TicketOne circuit): a project now in its fifth edition that was born from the collaboration between the museum, the City of Prato and festivals and cultural realities active in the area. With a focus on a variety of genres and audiences, it will begin on July 11 with Il Tre, an artist born in 1997 who makes his live debut with his new album Ali - for those who have no place in this world. On July 12, the outdoor theater will instead host the Festival delle Colline, now in its 43rd edition, while on July 13 Zen Circus will take the stage. On July 14, the Pecci Center will present a show designed especially for the festival: a guest performance by an important name in Italian musical research in recent years, which will be announced in the coming weeks, a collaboration to return to the celebration of the live experience as a celebration and rite of sharing.

The concert program will conclude on July 15 with Roman artist R.Y.F., who will present in concert the album Everything Burns, born from the collaboration with the Motus theater company for the show Tutto Brucia: a mix of electronic and punk rock.
