The sixth edition of the Performing Arts Advanced Programme is curated by Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz.
This advanced training course will run from February 16 to July 30, 2023 and it will take place mostly in Lisbon, Portugal.

The course is aimed for dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists with performance, body, and movement practices, older than 23 (with no upper age limit). The program is open to applications from individual and duet artists.

The selection process will be carried out by the curators of PACAP 6 and the direction of Forum Dança.
Candidates must present a synopsis of a project to be developed within the scope of PACAP 6.
This synopsis is nothing more than a starting point, an unfinished idea, an unsolved problem.

The selection process will take place in 2 distinct Phases:

Phase 1 – Applications – until June 20, 2022;
Phase 2 – Auditions – 5 to 10 September 2022.

Candidates selected for an audition will be contacted by June 30, 2022. The second phase will only be for the candidates selected in the first phase. Communication of the final results: all selected candidates will be contacted by email until 30 September 2022. For foreign residents unable to travel to Lisbon, an audition and online interview will be held between September 5 and 10, 2022 at a time to be arranged with each candidate.
