EVORA/PORTUGAL

… looked further, examining interventions that happen between people/bodies; how we interact, intervene, interfere and how we individually grow into what we finally are: individual beings, formed by culture, society, language. Explorations in the use of movement, dance and rhythm: dancers created situations together in a public space and in private – building communication through movement; addressing barriers, anxiety and cultural misunderstanding.

Escrita na Paisagem – festival de performance e artes da terra PORTUGAL Writing in the Landscape – Media and Performing Arts Festival

July, August and September / various locations of Alentejo

The festival aims to cross performing arts, new media, installations and the landscape. For the 2009 edition the theme is “Body-Object”. Presented are projects that provide an insight on subjects like intimacy, comfort, habitus, living strategies/styles and a number of other sightings related to the ways where and how we live.

“Bello’s workshop will be for people with little knowledge in visuals according to media art and the use of technology and for students from the University of Évora. The festival is a Community event that attracts a great audience each year. The proposed workshop will address several parts of the community to be involved and interacted with, which we hope creates more awareness of Media Arts within the community as well as bringing non-art aspects into the process.”
