What is a problem and how do we discover that it exists? We start in the void, where there is an unsolved problem, and we set out to discover it on a complex and challenging path. You find problems in your own body and its limitations: How does one deal with these limits, circumventing and finding alternatives? What path is taken to solve the problem in the architecture of our body as a metaphor for the question of the general problem? O que é um Problema? is a performance dedicated to children and young audiences that takes place on stage, with two dancers, one of them also a visual artist, and a musician. Observing the younger generations and their way of thinking, when they create and question, has a transformative role. The body, curious and perceptive, searches and holds hands to a journey about to be discovered through movement, construction, drawing and sounds. It constantly seeks to activate the physical, sensorial and emotional responses to overcome problems and find solutions.
#Face to Face
A meeting of researchers and professionals from different areas, which will open new perspectives regarding the reflection on the shows and the themes addressed by their creators. Thinking about Dance in the 21st century, in a transversal way, in terms of different generations and different places of thought is a starting point to open new platforms for understanding dance as a cultural and social phenomenon in contemporaneity, as well as a new form of language that is not only artistic. The guest speakers thus set out for a set of thoughts and discussions, allowing the work not to end in itself. This process implies the closeness of the guest speakers to the works in order for the latter to be the basis of the different reflections
