ARTISTIC RESIDENCIES PROGRAMME 
Teatro Viriato´s Artistic Residencies Programme, started in January 2023, is an initiative that aims to meaningfully contribute to the development of both national and international creators, by providing the space, financial support and other artistic requirements needed for the production and promotion of the performing arts. Throughout its existence, artist support has been one of the principal cornerstones of Teatro Viriato, and this programme, in close collaboration with all creators, will carry that precept to new heights.



DANCE // JANUARY 8th to 11th
NYMPHALIS ANTIOPA
by PAPILLONS D’ÉTERNITÉ  (TÂNIA CARVALHO & MATTHIEU EHRLACHER)

“Nymphalis Antiopa” is a contemporary dance piece that unveils the creative complicity between two artists, exploring a dialogue of contrast and interaction. This choreographic show, highlighting the use of dance as a universal language, brings us two interlocked bodies, constantly challenging their balance and fluidity, exploring the frontier between movement and immobility.

Taking place in a utopian reality, unmarred by gender prejudices and social expectations, the protagonists look into each other's eyes, dancing with intimate and inalienable synchronicity. An emotional journey – accompanied by original music written exclusively for the choreography – that utilizes the intensity of sound to both multiply and amplify gestures and movement, while toying with the scales of perception and vibration, attempting to create a rich and multi-layered sensory experience.



THEATRE // FEBRUARY 5th to 16th 
POPULAR
by SARA INÊS GIGANTE

“Popular”, a play by Sara Inês Gigante, winner of the Bolsa Amélia Rey Colaço (6th edition), will take to Teatro Viriato's stage on June 14th. With that in mind, the author will endeavour, for about a fortnight, to hone the concepts of “popular”, “pop”, “popularity” and “populism” that guide her show, at Teatro Viriato's studio. And in the end, there remains the eternal unknown of whether the play was actually “Popular” or not. 



THEATRE // FEBRUARY 12th to 22nd
MÃE
by MOCHOS NO TELHADO

Theatre company Mochos no Telhado will debut their play “MÃE” at Teatro Viriato. This work will bring to the stage several actresses who are also mothers; co-creators who accepted the challenge of questioning and reflecting upon the transformative process that takes place in one's life while transitioning into motherhood. This art residency also marks the end of this project's creative process.


THEATRE // FEBRUARY 26th to 29th
MADRINHAS DE GUERRA
by KELI FREITAS

This project intends to investigate the part women played during Portugal's Colonial War, namely through the examination of aerogrammes created by the Movimento Nacional Feminino (Women's National Movement), which were exchanged between them and the soldiers who were fighting overseas.  In addition to poring over these anonymous writings, it's equally important to find and hear whichever memories these women are willing to share. From those encounters, a critical-affective reading of Portugal's recent past will surely emerge.



Theatre and Music // APRIL 8th to 13th
QUERO UM PIANO
by ANA MADUREIRA and VAHAN KEROVPYAN

In this story, inspired by the Armenian Genocide of 1915, the artists throw the protagonist into a scenario taking place in outer space. Earth decided that there was no room for him. Did he arrive in the same heaven as the deceased? At the very least, he reached the empty space of a new land and a new life. “QUERO um PIANO” will be a solo performance for children/families, marked by music and humour. At Teatro Viriato, the artists will develop the research needed for the creation of the show.



DANCE // MAY 13th to 17th
THE PROCESS OF BURNING IN REVERSE
by SÃO CASTRO

Companhia de Dança de Almada invited choreographer São Castro to, once again, create a performance for the cast of this very Company in 2024. Taking the opportunity provided by the 100th anniversary of Franz Kafka's death, São Castro allies the expression of the body with the renowned writer's visceral and enigmatic prose. This project is a continuation of the choreographer's work methodology, focusing on the relationship between word and body. 


THEATRE // JUNE 23rd to 25th
PAISAGENS INÚTEIS 
by VANDA RODRIGUES

After her previous artist residency at Teatro Viriato, in 2023, Vanda Rodrigues returns for a second residency pertaining to the show “Paisagens Inúteis”. A residency that prepares the last lines for the mouth of one performer and the hands of another. A show that will take place amidst the landscape, non-ableist and bilingual (performed in Portuguese and Portuguese Sign Language), where the audience is also a performative agent. 


THEATRE // JULY 01st to 06th
AURORA (OU LIVRO)
by PAULA DIOGO

The act of reading as a staring point; a space inhabited by bodies that condition and direct our actions. To think and populate the body with a matter both tactile and reactive that, when deprived of vision, activates other ways of reading the world and relate to reality. A project that focuses on building a scenic idiom based on the relationship between body and space.


DANCE // JULY 15th to 19th
ANDAR PARA TRÁS
by SARA ANJO

“Andar para trás” constructs a fable, a possible history of movement, and journeys through it backwards and forwards. It blazes a trail towards the future by looking at the past and reflecting on the invasive and overwhelming nature of the human species, that exploits the resources of the earth for profit, leading to a depletion of the ecosystem. This danced fable evokes an ecosystem that reflects and creates possible points of view for the future.


DANCE // JULY 22nd to 26th
OVNI
by DALLY SCHWARZ and MARCOS AGANJU (BR)

“OVNI - objeto visível não identificado” is a multidisciplinary performance that mixes image, dance and soundscapes. It is a project that, through the actions of a body and its relationship with the plastic material of a tent, travels through different notions of inhabiting, living, sheltering and being born in our modern world.


THEATRE // JULY 22nd to 27th
A MATANÇA DO PORCO DO PAI 
by SÓNIA BARBOSA | RITUAL DE DOMINGO 
 
A family. A community. A world.

A pig to the slaughter. Father's pig. An ancestral ritual that brings old family wounds to the fore. This play is about the memory of violence and the violence of memory. It's about building a future capable of accepting the past. A theatrical creation written by Sónia Barbosa, which includes research, community involvement, artistic training and five presentations at different locations.
