Lugar Futuro Festival aims to promote young dance creators and performers and to be a platform for the premiere of ‘new works’, as well as for the presentation of ‘first works’ by dance students or young choreographers, besides promoting the discovery of new values by the invited programmers.
The weekend programme, with artistic direction by Leonor Keil, will consist of the presentation of shows, masterclasses and a closing meeting, in a perspective of exchange of experiences between the invited schools, students, teachers, creators and interpreters/participants, in an effective sharing with the public of Viseu.
For this first year, the programme has confirmed the participation of the Ana Maletic School of Contemporary Dance Zagreb and of Escola da Companhia de Dança de Almada. One of the highlights will be the presentation of a selected set of First Works by young Portuguese and foreign choreographers, which promises to surprise by the diversity ‘and freshness’ of the proposals. Performances will be held between 12 and 14 November 2021.
