Dance Study Project II

Francisco Camacho


Organized in 3 distinct parts, with an intensive rhythm, of about 54 hours each, it’s targeted at those who develop or intend to pursue professional activity in the performing arts and aims to focus on the interpretation related aspects.
The parts will focus on contexts determined by areas of artistic interest of the trainer. Together, the attendees will reflect upon the common requirements of a creative process. The program contemplates the transmission of the dancer’s artistic practices, with focus on issues of domain and expansion on expressive potentialities of movement and gesture, creative response and mechanisms to stimulate the imaginary, and modes of scenic presence. Simultaneously, some work sessions will be guided by invited professionals, whose contributions will be strategic in the development of the knowledge and skills.
