Vagar * is a contemporary dance / movement community project that aims to reflect about how humanity relates to this global organization.
The project has as starting point the concepts Positive and Negative, based on the book of Byung Chul Han, called The Burnout Society.
The proposal was to find space and time, inside and outside, in a place of a healthy and contemplative “tiredness”.
This show was held with the team of Marina Nabais Dança, cultural association, along with a group of local people, living in Ourém.
It was presented in external patrimonial spaces.

* Integrated order within the scope of the Artéria project, which has as its theme New Times, characterized by containing projects whose epicenters are urban centers of historical and small scale determined by the importance of the built heritage they contain. New Times cross different temporal dimensions, namely the possibility of meeting the memory with the need to inject modernity in the heritage and to assume it and live in the present time. The Artéria project (project CENTRO-07-2114-FEDER-000022) is Co-sponsored by Coimbra, Figueira da Foz, Viseu, Guarda, Belmonte, Fundão, Tábua and Ourém Municipalities. Project co-financed by the CENTRO 2020 Program, Portugal 2020 and the European Union, through the European Structural Funds and Investment.
