Project Description


Mycelia are fungi that establish a network of contacts with each other, communicating and passing information. This is how the trees communicate, help each other and maintain their balance. In the body we have the fascia, which in shape closely resembles mycelia. It is very curious how humans developed an identical communication system, the Internet.

This project is a metaphor for awareness and connection of the uno and the multiple by observing these similar patterns. In this sense, we approach of the awareness in the body, in nature, and in communities to see how everything is connected. Here we must share concepts and experiences where the participants themselves contribute to the creation of this work.

ACCCA (Wednesdays)
Interpress Building, Rua Luz Soriano, 67, 1st Floor, Bairro Alto, 1200-246 Lisboa
Saturday collective sessions – times and place to be arranged

Dance and movement laboratories are developed every year. In them, contemporary movement is explored, favoring the development of dance technique based on the connection between ground and vertical movement, active relaxation, energetic stimulation and spatiotemporal relationship.

During the sessions a score is built based on a certain theme that will give rise to a final artistic project, built by the group of participants and under the guidelines of Marina Nabais. In 2020, the Laboratory will be based on Mycelium *.

Parallel exercises will be developed with a group of adults and a group of children in separate weekly sessions.

Subsequently there will be 4 site-specific sessions with both groups, in order to work together, aiming to prepare a final public presentation that unites all this complexity of universes.

This intergenerational group may be with family members or be made up of adults and unrelated children.
