BARCO Dance Collection led by Dinis Machado
30th June | 5pm – 8.30pm
In BARCO Dance Collection Dinis Machado invites other choreographers, to create short solos for himself as a dancer. It is a collection of dances rather then a collection of dance performances (in the interdisciplinary sense of a stage performance where the light, the sound, the set and the costumes build something together). Barco is therefore designed to be presented anywhere. Being the performative condition of dance practice mostly immaterial, as a map, this collection is as well a gathering of practices rather then the objects that surround it. This is a collection of dances where dance is looked and worked on as something autonomous.
