Featured: “Celebração” at Culturgest (Lisbon, Portugal)

CELEBRAÇÃO is a festival of dance and performance, designed by artists living and working in Lisbon, and offering spectators a weekend of shows and talks – an opportunity for experiencing new ways of thinking and acting together.
CELEBRAÇÃO will create closer ties between the audience and the artistic community in what promises to be an encounter with the Other, an encounter with Lisbon, in an initiative that creates affinities and explores principles of joint experimentation, questioning the conditions under which we will exist in the future.
CELEBRAÇÃO is not a cartography of Dance and Performance made in Lisbon, nor a portrait of generation or of a group of artists while being young. It is an invitation to look at a snip or an outline of difference and multiplicity who insists on working here and now, trying an idea together.
CELEBRAÇÃO is this time and this space, showcasing here and now various poetic worlds at different moments of experimentation, consolidation and existence.


CELEBRAÇÃO is made by Andresa Soares, António Júlio, António Pedro Lopes, Cláudio da Silva, Elizabete Francisca, Gui Garrido, Hermann Heisig, João Calixto, Lígia Soares, Márcia Lança, Marianne Baillot, Nuno Lucas, Pieter Ampe, Rita Natálio, Sofia Dias, Teresa Silva, Vânia Rovisco e Vítor Roriz, among many others.
The guests will bring 1800 nails, 30 boards, 38 battens, a compressor, the inexhaustible energy, though volatile, of teenage boys, a body porous to spatial connections and internal and external physics of potential (ir)realities, an applause which causes a rain of vegetables, the handsome man approaching the beautiful woman at the sound of International, choreographic mediated relationships, a sense of failure and problem, an exercise in displacement or a test of surviving a threat, a happy hour of anthropophagic rituals, a strong meeting between humor and monstrosity and a monologue in three voices directed by a conductor.

Two actors, while shooting a movie, had to start a new scene after had supposedly ran a long distance. One of the actors went running before shooting the scene to feel tired. When he came back, sweaty, breathless, ready, the other actor asked: "Why don't you just pretend?" For me, theatre is about pretending but, at the same time, experience becomes the best performance.
