Danças Privadas (Private Dances) were presented for the first time in the event “Megastore”, in Lisbon, arousing great interest and being pointed out as one of the most striking proposals. They provide a unique opportunity to see one of the best performers of the Portuguese Contemporary Dance, in a strongly intimate environment. Each client (spectator) is invited to make an appointment for a given time when Francisco Camacho will create an original dance, alone with him/her. When making the appointment, the client has the right to select the costume and the music for the dance to be created, paying a symbolic commission fee according to the music’s length. A co-production certificate will be issued for each private dance session. Since the dance is created according to each individual, there is no age restriction for the audience. Danças Privadas has an evident playful appeal. At the same time it puts into question issues related to role of the artist, the audience and the producer, and the relationships that are established between them.
