Cultural Quadrilateral Programme
"Vaamo share oque shop é Beiro Pateiro", Vera Mantero and Cia. Dançando com a Diferença (“Dancing with the Difference”)
Alameda do Mosteiro de Landim | 7 pm
Vera Mantero and the Dançando com a Diferença Company work movement, dance, and art at the limits of their bodies' capacity. In this show, this meeting extends those limits a little further, in the encounter between "a contagious joy in the studio, the impression that there is always a reason to celebrate, to party, to rejoice" of the Company's dancers and the disruptive way of Vera Mantero facing art, of her "daring and innovation, by questioning standards and social conventions in force", and therefore, the perfect dance partner in the construction of this show that stands in front of several battles, between aesthetics, beauty and the various types of social barriers.
What is this piece about? More than being "about" something, it lets itself live under a regime of free and often non-verbal associations that are for me a very faithful portrait of everything I lived and experienced within this group.
This show also celebrates twenty years of work in the sense of "Changing the social image of people with disabilities" and to present it several types of spaces were thought, such as the Cultural Center Vila Flor, a reference of the performing art, but it is transported to the outside, to the magnificent gardens of the Monastery of Tibães, in Braga, the Monastery of Landim, in Famalicão and in the center of historical Barcelos, in Largo Dr. José Novais.
