In this gathering, people who participated in the Terra Batida residencies come together to discuss their research: Ana Lucia Nobre, Ana Rita Teodoro, Bruno Caracol, Claraluz Keiser, Inês Andrade, Joana Levi, Leticia Skrycky, Luisa Homem, Maria Inês Gameiro, Maria Lucia Correia, Margarida Mendes, Marta Lança, Marta Mestre, Miguel Rego, Rita Natálio, Samuel Melro, Silvia das Fadas, Vera Mantero.

Terra Batida is a constellation of people, practices and knowledge taking a stand against ecological violence and politics of abandonment. Local knowledge of socio-environmental conflicts combine with an active network to resist extractive abuses and to practice care — to speculate, to tell stories, and build visions and reflections of the future for our weary, worn-out worlds. All Terra Batida events are free to attend.

In 2020, Terra Batida brings participants from dance, film, performance and visual arts into collaboration with researchers, members of cooperatives and activists in Ourique, Castro Verde, Montemor-o-Novo, Aveiro, Ílhavo, and Gafanha da Nazaré. These specific, local starting points in Portugal are a springboard for thinking and operating at multiple levels. In Alentejo, the discussion is about desertification; super-intensive farming and related extractive practices around migrant labour; toxic, deactivated mines; seas of greenhouses on the coast; the lack of water and people; and the conservation of native species and other forms of community resistance. In Aveiro, questions address the rapid erosion of the coastline, port traffic, rising sea levels, and the cellulose industry. These problems are at the crux of social, racial and interspecies conflict.

At the Alkantara Festival, Terra Batida presents a programme of performances, research sessions, and talks at São Luiz Teatro Municipal.
