PED – Dance Study Project
PED – Dance Study Project is a training program led by Francisco Camacho, regularly promoted by EIRA. It is aimed at those professionally active in the performing arts and has the objective of promoting the aspects related to interpretation through the transmission of the dancer’s artistic practices. It stems from his areas of artistic interest, but which embark common demands in a creative process, with a focus on issues of mastery and expansion of expressive potential, creative response and mechanisms to stimulate the imaginary, and modes of scenic presence.
This edition will begin with a visit guided by Francisco Camacho to the exhibition “1982/2022 – Around dance: traces and presences” at the Museu Nacional do Teatro e da Dança, serving to identify and elaborate on guidelines of the work to be developed, always in a perspective of overcoming limits and achieving a more singular performativity. Thus, this edition fosters the contact with the public, experienced in different contexts of presentation: between the Largo Residências – Quartel do Largo do Cabeço de Bola and the aforementioned museum.
These moments of visibility aim to provide experiences of presence and diversified performativity, researching different interpretative resources according to the places of those who perform and those who watch, sharing the same space or being in clearly demarcated areas, considering proximity and distance.
Happening alongside the 2023 edition of the Festival Cumplicidades, the participation in PED will grant free access to some performances, which will contribute to amplify the program’s content.
