to Sept 27 | PERFORMANCE ART | September at Rua das Gaivotas 6 | Santos | FREE to 7,5€
Rua das Gaivotas 6 has pushed the boundaries on traditional theatre by providing a space for performances, movement, residencies and readings, a former School, now opened to a neighborhood and a city. As imagined by Teatro Praga, Rua das Gaivotas 6 is a space where one can devise freedom and spend time looking at oneself not subjected to normalization.
Here’s what’s on the agenda:
–(Re)Union 018 – the second edition of the biannual gathering of performing arts.
(Sept 13-15 and Sept 20-22, 19h, 4,50€ – 8€).
Second edition of Biannual Performing Arts Meeting – (Re)union takes place between September 13th and 23rd 2018 in Lisbon at Casa da América Latina, Espaço Alkantara, Espaço da Penha e Rua das Gaivotas 6.

Those artists will have the chance to present their most recent performances, open their artistic processes up to public, share their research practices through workshops, engage citizens of Lisbon via urban interventions, among other artistic proposals and the complementary program.
–“Propositions.” Carlos Manuel Oliveira to Lisbon, who, after 12 years, presents the project (Sept 25-27, 21h, 7,50€)
There are moments when everything seems possible to us. Something happens and immediately we imagine outcomes with the same ease with which we dream the world. But between imagination and calculus, between potentiality and possibility, there is the distance of a space made of forces without form and of times without measure. Let us remain in the imagination of what is possible and soon we’ll understand that, more than the form or the number of things, what entertains us is the sensation of a belonging. We belong to the world but, more than that, to a memory. We live occupied by it and with it we connect to what is of its concern. An unmeasurable belonging, a depthless depth, beyond the limits of possibility. But also the world unfolds beyond our desires, as possible. And we unfold with it, more or less frustrated. It is not the world’s responsibility to fulfill our desires but it is our responsibility to dream as we can. And from proposition to proposition to imagine what we can.
