Uma jornada de performances por toda a casa da Brotéria que parte da mesma temática da exposição Oneiroikos, em que é possível aos espetadores deambularem entre os vários elementos em apresentação. No fim, um happening social no pátio.
Oneiroikos is an exhibition that brings together works by the artists Carlos Bunga, Diogo Costa and Eduardo Fonseca e Silva and Francisca Valador, through the framework of the book The Poetics of Space (1958), by Gaston Bachelard. This day of performances was thought up with the aim of activating some of the ideas proposed by Bachelard in Brotéria, which has as its mission “to be a space that establishes a relation between the street and the home”.
HOMO SCALA — Espécie Poética do Espaço / HOMO SCALA — Poetic Species of Space
Place: Main Staircase
Start: 3 pm
Duration: 3 hours
In HOMO SCALA – Poetic Species of Space, Os Espacialistas explore Bachelard’s idea of how moving through a house mirrors our inner journeys, from the lower, darker, more reflective spaces, like the cellar to the higher, lighter, more transcendental spaces of action, like the attic.
Poetically, human beings ascend and descend the different levels of the body; from the feet to the head, according to the real or imagined intensities in which we find ourselves. A stair is also a body with many levels; it is a bridge that rises, a door that’s ajar, always leaning downward or upward. It joins and separates two parallel lines on the horizon that meet in infinity. A stair is a gesture; it is an activity of being. Whether we are ascending or descending, we are entering or exiting a conversation with everything that surrounds us. To ascend is a heightened form of being and doing. It is to act poetically. To descend is a profound form of being; it is to cease being (the same); it is to be other; to be hidden.
A stair is a being of many levels; on it we learn to climb higher, more intensely; to beat out rhythms of ascent and descent; to transform adjectives and nouns into verbs/actions. We learn to react poetically to the body’s vicissitudes. A stair is a never-ending fold of edges and corners. It is an object-space on which rising and falling paths are mapped out. It is a type of space composed by objects to the scale of the body.
For Os Espacialistas, the thoughts that matter are those that move, that ascend and descend, that fly and fall; that dream of movement in its every form. Homo Scala projects the body of space and dreams it to fit the images of the senses that divide the body and that the body carries, as it ascends, descends, and ceases to be. Homo Scala is and is in constant poetic reaction, where each gesture is a proportion, a question, an exercise in reflection and intensity on the conditions of the body and of space. Laden with potential gestures, Homo Scala passes sowing objects and modes of inhabiting space as a form of mediating and measuring the real and imaginary intensities of the levels that make the body a place that shelters daydreams.
Os Espacialistas is a laboratory project for theoretical and practical investigation of the links between Art, Architecture and Education, which began in 2008.

Sinédoque / Synecdoche
Place: Sala da Esfera
Start: 3:15 pm
Duration: 45 mins
In Synecdoche, Teresa Silva revisits and brings together six choreographic pieces that she created and performed in collaboration with Maria Lemos, Elizabete Francisca, Filipe Pereira and Sara Anjo, between 2009 and 2020.
Synecdoche is a figure of speech characterized by the substitution of one term for another, whose most common form consists in taking the part for the whole and the whole for the part.
Silva this period of time and these choreographies. She transits from the stage to the gallery space, and she transforms duets into a solo experience, in what is certainly a risky exercise. However, today, she feels that this history, which is also an ecosystem, needs to manifest itself to reveal things that she has not yet understood.
Teresa Silva (1988) is a choreographer and dancer. She has been developing her own work since 2008, having carried out several collaborations with national and international artists, working primarily between Portugal, France, and Italy. She sees dance as something that transcends the physical body, and which translates into a work on attention and sensitivity, as well as into a multidisciplinary approach to movement.

Stripteaser GAMBIARRA Dreams
Acauã El_Bandide Shereya
Place: Sala Homem Espuma
Start: 4:10pm and 5:10pm
Duration: 20 mins
Stripteaser GAMBIARRA Dreams, by trans artist Acauã El_Bandide Shereya, is an autobiographical solo that highlights a fluid and non-binary pedagogy in the way we organize our desires, our wills, our politics, and our infinite creativity. In this solo, the artist works with materials that she finds on the street and that touch upon an autobiographical story. To think and act on the performativity of bodies (hers and materials), she uses GAMBIARRA, a Brazilian action that consists of acting / changing structures to make / use resources, to think about how to achieve the impossible.
Acauã El_Bandide Shereya works with different materialities and languages to observe, perceive and invent other subjective contours of how to interact and, progressively, share intimacy in the performance, acting in the creation of sound waves, lyrics, dreams, fantasies, nightmares, life and death. In this sense, she fortifies countless actions and strategies in different languages: writing, audiovisual, cyberspace, music, corrupting repertoires to break barriers and understand materialities that connect, merging with fluid and non-binary politics and didactics.
From this perspective, this solo seeks this compromise, in the inability to fixate on an image, on a linearity, on a sensation. How can we experience and inhabit fluctuation, non-gravity?

Looking for the bassman
Place: Sala dos Couros
Duration: 2 hours
With Looking for the bassman, primeira desordem fulfil their dream of forming a punk rock band, justifying the origin of their name. They are looking for a bass player and the auditions are open.
With a great deal of irony, the pair breaks norms and confounds barriers, creating hybrid environments between the public and the private, transforming a noble room into a rehearsal space, a study area into a place of noise, conviviality and experimentation. Poetry is in these liminal places, of risk and impermanence, and in the connections that will come from them.
primeira desordem (“first disorder”) is a project by Hugo Gomes (1989) and João Marques (1989) that plays in the intersection between art, poetry, music and crime
Technical sheet performance, electric guitar and amplifier, electric bass and amplifier, drums, 2 microphones, 2 tripods, mixing table, rug, chairs and sofa.
