The dance workshops aim to promote contemporary dance within the community, and, in a playful way, acknowledge the body, the movement, going through the history of dance and bringing generations together.

These classes are aimed for several ages, circulate in different contexts and can adapt to theaters, museums, experimental rooms. They can be presented in a single session, or in several sessions, after performances or in independent contexts. They are aimed at the general public and teachers/educators.

There are other workshops, which are not included in these descriptions. In case of interest please contact.

Poems in Motion

Starting from the project A Noite, these sessions use exercises, practices and movement proposals to perceive and investigate the themes that describe and link of the families, leading the participants to question about the night and about them.

The Essays for a Poem consist, on the one hand, of an opportunity to deepen the subject and to develop a closer investigation with the families and, on the other, in preparation for the Poems in Motion.

Orientation of Marina Nabais.

Dance improvisation sessions, where movement is the basis of research and creation.

The first part is composed of a directed tuning, which awakens the attention on the body, space, time and the other participants, in search of a collective sense. Then, a set of tasks / proposals related to some themes of improvisation will be given soon after, in an open format, and with live music.

These sessions have a beginning, middle and end, so it is not necessary to have participated in previous sessions. They are aimed at all those interested (and curious) in movement, dance, theater and improvisation techniques.

Level open to all formations.

Oficina De Seda

This workshop is a sharing of a choreographic process of the show De Seda. The choreographer Marina Nabais invites the participants to enter a very particular universe, where movement, space and sound meet in a single artistic object.
