INART presents a program that crosses languages, movements, people and generations whilst reflecting on community art as an innovative movement for new artistic and human landscapes. These surroundings reflect the work of artists that challenge the conventional, through narratives and content. Discover new artistic projects based on diversity, and meet artists that make it their work to build bridges between worlds and people, in a plural and inclusive art.

 

INART will present seven pieces (three of which are world premiere) created by national and international choreographers. The festival will screen the documentary Geração SOMA, three talks on the teaching of inclusive dancing and sign language in performative arts. It will also have several contemporary dance, inclusive dance, improvisation, theatre, performance and sign language workshops that will be taught by choreographers and actors from Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom.

 

INART’s opening will be held at Bernardo Sassetti room (São Luiz Theatre), on the 19th of February at 7.30pm, with the musical project in Portuguese Sign Language – MusicSign – by Pedro Oliveira e Rafaela Silva. At 9pm, in Luis Miguel Cintra room, the premiere of Still Practicing, Stillness by the choreographer and dancer Adam Benjamin (co-founder of Candoco). This is an inter-generational, inclusive dance project that works with adults, children and seniors – with and without disabilities. This performance will also have live music and artists from Portugal and the United Kingdom.

 

On the 20th of February, also worldwide premiere, No Silêncio da Primeira Onda a performance by Rafael Alvarez, Bodybuilders & Plural_Companhia de Dança. Paper bodies in a sea of emotions, images, memories, shadows and promises of several futures. Seven waves for seven artists, in a wave that connects and holds them.

 

On the 21st of February, the performance 3,50x2,70 (three and a half, two seventy), by CiM – Companhia de Dança. Created by Ana Rita Barata and Bruno Rodrigues, this piece will be performed by six, deaf and non-deaf, actors. This is a piece that tries to question the space of others, boundaries from inside out, as it tries to find a common language where silence, words and gestures do not belong to anyone.

 

On the 22nd of February, in the Mário Vegas room, 343 m/s will be presented. This performance by Angus Balbernie, Stuart Jackson and Katy Dymoke, keeps an open ending on different abilities and changing perceptions.

 

On the 23rd of February, a double bill by German choreographer Silke Z./ resistdance with the premiere of the performance Out of Sight. This performance is a dialogue on the idea of collectiveness and the doctrine of the masses versus individual needs, feelings and freedom. It will be performed by Portuguese and German dancers. By the same choreographer, and premiering in Portugal, You Are Safe, a piece that talks about the lack of control and the way fear affects our soul, body and human relationships.

 
As for the closing performance, on the 24th of February, INART will present ALI, produced by Teatro la Ribalta and choreographed by Julie Anne Stanzak (Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal). ALI is a story of an encounter between a common young adult, who is disappointed and pessimistic and a fallen angel who wants to suffer and love all of mankind.

 

On the 20th of February at 6pm, the documentary Geração SOMA will be screened. This film, by Pedro Sena Nunes, reveals the creative process of the inclusive and social project Geração SOMA. This project that ran between 2015 and 2017 worked with students between the ages of 5 and 16 years old from Lisbon schools, whilst integrating children with special learning needs. At the end of the film, there will be a talk between the director and guests.

 

Between the 18th and the 24th of February, INART offers six contemporary dance, inclusive dance, improvisation, theatre, performance, and sign language workshops. These will be taught by international and national choreographers and actors. INART also promote two Talks (on the 21st and 22nd of February) that will reflect on the current state of inclusive dancing and sign language teaching within performative arts.

 

INART is a festival accessible to all. The program includes Portuguese Sign Language interpretation and audio-description. See INART programme.

 

 

INART’s main goal is to promote arts as a way of pedagogical, artistic and social integration, creating awareness among professionals who work with disabled people and other communities, on the importance of arts as a tool to fight social exclusion.
