by Joana von Mayer Trindade & Hugo Calhim Cristóvão
20 & 21 may [4pm-7.30pm]: Circolando Space, Porto
This workshop proposes a transmission of the artistic processes included in the creation work for the performance show “Da Insaciabilidade no caso ou ao mesmo tempo um milagre”. It will specifically address the performative work, at the intersection between art and theory, about the following quotation from Almada Negreiros: “Nostalgia is the passive masturbation of those who don’t realise that nature is sufficiently varied that there is no need to look backwards. Speed is driven by enthusiasm and never disengages from happiness.”
Target audience: professionals and performing arts students
