In this DDD – Festival Dias da Dança, we invite artists, specialists and
journalists to get together and to elaborate on the relevant topics of the
times we are currently facing – or in other words, how does art make us reflect
on the world and society, or in more words – how do artistic practices
translate and are translated into the now.
In an edition that brings together numerous national artists, we decided
to bring them together to talk about issues that have been concerning us, in a
format that, by not talking directly about their works, makes them think about
how their creations are inserted in expanded topics.
There will be 4 talks that will be held throughout the Festival, in a
digital format and mark a beginning to question the future, through the present
Talk #1: Productivity &
Procrastination: bodies in a state of siege
With João Fiadeiro, Victor Hugo Pontes, Vânia Rodrigues
Mderated by Helena Teixeira da Silva
2020, 2021 and... are years that
are making us question the system of production, of creation, of the notion of
work. Less is more? More is less? More or less? What are the new forms and,
above all, what is the place for contemporary artistic creation nowadays? How
does art remain (because it always has been) in a state of siege?
João Fiadeiro, speaks about the
real time and its place in the present time and brings to Festival DDD the
story of a crisis, of an encounter in Ça va exploser, where the events
happen in the cracks of a fiction, in the same way that change happens in the
cracks of the system; Victor Hugo Pontes, who is presenting Os Três Irmãos,
where fictional characters meet in a non-place, surviving each other's
existence, talk to Vânia Rodrigues, cultural and consultant manager, in a talk
moderated by journalist Helena Teixeira da Silva.
