The Body as a Border 

Workshop: Renato Ferracini

10th and 11thOctober | 9:30h – 12:30h 

At Casa do Coreto (Carnide)

The body as artistic and creative power: not the body inserted in a delimited and named fixed context, but the body as an expressive border that expands and pierces the edges, creating a unique space and at the same time intersecting the theater/dance/performance relations . This workshop will work, in practice, the body within this border of creation, whether in the relationship with space, with the other, with music, with objects, always seeking the expressive capacity of each participant.
