In children’s imagination, the night is perhaps the first of the great mysteries. The shadows, the darkness, the silence, the street sounds and the movements in the house inspire fantasies, a lot of fears and some fascination. In the children’s universe, night is synonymous with the unknown, on the one hand, and infinite possibility, on the other. Night terrors, monsters under the bed, heavy rain that won’t let you sleep, but also happy dreams, bedtime stories, lullabies, goodnight cuddles, moonlight.

The night is, by definition, a time of fantasy, and it remains that way in our adult life, becoming associated with loneliness, sleeplessness, deviation, but also with intimacy and reflection. For all these reasons, night is ancestrally linked to the artistic world, it rests somewhere between melancholy and transgression.

Margem” [Margin] takes inspiration from Jorge Amado’s 1937 novel, “Captains of the Sands”, which portrays a group of abandoned children and teenagers living on the streets of São Salvador da Bahia, stealing to eat and sleeping in a warehouse by the docks where, as a kind of family, they watch over one another and survive one day at a time.

Estágio de Dança de Aveiro 2019, curated by Victor Hugo Pontes for the third consecutive year, is designed to continue with the programme of the previous two editions. The idea is to allow the participants to access, in an engaging way, different, technical and creative tools, in order to enrich their artistic language. This year, the offer will be more diverse and the participants will be able to choose between two areas: one more classic and the other one more inspired by urban dance.

All the instructors are highly qualified, and the participants will have access to various courses: Luísa Carles and Solange Melo (classical dance), Ángela Diaz Quintela, Hélder Seabra, Joana Castro, Piny and Vera Santos (contemporary dance), Vítor Fontes (hip hop), Leo (house dance), Deeogo Oliveira (b-boying), Sara Barros Leitão (theatre), Marina Kaptijn (Jan Fabre Teaching Group / Troubleyn), Hillel Kogan (Gaga Movement). Besides that, in the creative laboratory, the participants will access an experimental creative space, in close contact with the artistic language of experienced choreographers.

The participants will be divided into four groups, according to their age range (8-9 years old; 10-12; 13-15; over 16). The workshop/training is also aimed at professionals from performing arts and, for the first time, to adults with no professional artistic experience.
