Educational Dance Project for Teenagers
From Francisco Camacho's Repertoire
PEDRA is a contemporary dance project designed for young people aged between 15 and 18, without any artistic experience. It has as its starting point the invitation addressed to a leading national choreographer, who will make a repertoire available for this group to discover and work with. The process will be developed simultaneously in three different cities (Lisbon, Porto and Viseu), under a regime of co-creation between the participants and a local choreographer, monitored by the guest choreographer. The choice of repertoire is free, although it is limited to the work that the guest choreographer favours. The programme ends with the presentation of an exercise based on the interpretation, reading and realisation of this repertoire. This will be the second of three editions of this project, co-produced by Culturgest, Teatro Municipal do Porto and Teatro Viriato. In each city, a group of participants will be chosen, and each year one of these theatres will also act as the host for this event. For this year’s edition, the guest choreographer is Francisco Camacho.
