The Gulbenkian Foundation is known throughout Portugal and beyond as being a leader in the realms of culture, art, classical music, and, if you dig deep enough, oil… But another thing it dabbles in is dance, and for the next two long weekends, the Gulbenkian is going to prove they don’t have two left feet with eight days of multicultural, multinational, and multimedia performances — all in the realm of dance, with some making their very first appearance in Portugal.
We’ll let them take the lead from here:
“Since the disbanding of the Gulbenkian Ballet in 2005, the Foundation has focused its involvement in dance on awarding grants — for study, creation, and internationalization — that fund independent contemporary dance projects from artists mainly at the start of their careers. In response to the invitation to create a program that brings together a series of works funded by the Foundation, this show presents two dozen performances selected from more than a hundred which were awarded grants under the Gulbenkian Culture Programme between 2011 and 2017.”
