PACAP 3 curated by Vânia Rovisco

Keywords: Performance; Installation; Expanded Body; Theory Practices; Music; Visual arts; Fine arts; Poetics of the body; Formal hybridism

PACAP 3 was conceived as a continuous process vitalized by the conference of multiple languages in the act of experimenting, researching and physical preparation. Bodywork is foundational to the program with all the different artistic languages covered in the scope of the program being directed around the axis-body. The several artists invited to teach at the program will be as much interdisciplinary as intergenerational. The goal of this teaching body will be to maintain a dynamic of continuity and disruption in the artistic process of the participants in the program. This teaching specificity is aligned with the sharing of material and processes inherent to the formal hybridism of PACAP 3.

Creation in Performance as the sum of the relational exercises, following the contemporary paradigm of the expanded body [conscience], will be submitted in the program to the critical practice of place. Therefore, the spaces of creation assume a particular relevance in the artistic topography already designed by PACAP 3 between Coimbra, in Colégio das Artes; Montemor-o-Novo, in Espaço do Tempo; and Lisbon, in Escola Superior de Música, Culturgest and Espaço da Penha- Forum Dança. PACAP 3 will also have some specific moments open to the public like Pop-Up events or Open Studio events.
