Educational Dance Project for Teenagers

From Vera Mantero's Repertoire

PEDRA is a contemporary dance project, designed for young people aged between 15 and 18, with or without artistic experience. Its starting point is the invitation addressed to a famous Portuguese choreographer with a repertoire that can be easily worked. Activities take place simultaneously in Lisbon, Porto and Viseu, and each city chooses a group of young people who will work together in a spirit of cocreation with a local choreographer, all accompanied by the guest choreographer. The programme ends with the presentation of an exercise based on the interpretation and enjoyment of the repertoire chosen by each group.

Created and co-produced by Culturgest, Teatro Municipal do Porto and Teatro Viriato, this will be the third and final edition of the project. In 2018, the guest choreographer was Clara Andermatt and the host city was Porto; in 2019, the guest choreographer was Francisco
Camacho and the host city was Viseu; in 2020, the presentation of the exercises will take place at Culturgest.
