circolando – transdisciplinary creation space
Under the artistic direction of André Braga & Cláudia Figueiredo, Circolando develops its activity since 1999.
The production and diffusion André Braga & Cláudia Figueiredo’s creations are the core of its activity, alongside with the creation of projects from associated artists, the hosting of artistic creations residences and a training program in and out of doors.
At the core of the project is the concept of transdisciplinarity. An intense dialogue between dance and theater, with strong input from other creation fields: poetry, visual arts, music, video.
The initial affinity to circus, present in the choosing of our name, faded completely. Nowadays prevails the circle and the act of circulating, the choice to make our way in the frontier spaces.
Circolando is settled in the former powerplant of Freixo, Porto, current functioning as Support Centre for the Creation of Cultural Enterprises (CACE Cultural do Porto). Collaborates regularly with some of the most prestigious cultural structures in Portugal and has performed at festivals and theaters from different countries: Spain, France, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Poland, Finland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Morocco, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Panama, Brazil, South Korea and China.
