Project Description

Taanteatro Companhia is celebrating its 30th anniversary. They have recently published a book entitled Choreographic Theatre of Tensions about their legacy and are currently organizing their Ecoperformance festival 2022.

We are curious to learn more about their work, how their artistic concepts and praxis evolved and where they want to go next. In particular we are interested in connections between human movement and non-human movement (nature and artificial machines), how they do the labor of learning resiliency, playfulness and courage and how they are moving to move (with) us. We are also curious about aesthetic politics of laughter and critique.
