- 21.06 — 26.06 2021
- Artists in Residence
- Espaço Alkantara
Apply here by 17 June.
Selected participants will be notified by 18 June.

TRAÇA is an arts project
About the gesture of drawing and annotating movement
About marking a path in a territory with our bodies
About undoing and digging holes
TRAÇA is also about three actions that put human beings in a symbiotic relationship with their surroundings: breathing, walking, and stopping. These actions are choreo-political, creating awareness of the body and its surroundings through movement.
In this workshop, we will explore different movement practices based on these three actions. Each practice is based on a score that is open to each participant’s interpretation.
In addition to studio sessions at Espaço Alkantara, the workshop also includes three walks around the periphery of Lisbon:
- Parque das Nações - Rio Trancão - Sacavém (22 June)
- Pontinha - Sr. Roubado (24 June)
- Santos - Trafaria - Belém (26 June)

Sara Anjo (PT 1982) is a dancer and choreographer interested in meditative practices that generate psico-physical changes, breathing and walking are the main ones. She permanently questions herself about: what moves us? How do we move? And to where are we moving? As a maker she is interested in choreographic proposals that activate a sonic theatre, where choreography and the performative space are explored through soundscape. She devised Nobody would know to tell that story a feminist performance where she collaborated with 6 female artists (BoxNova CCB 2011); Liquid Landscapes a travelling dance in an old washing house in Lisbon (Teatro do Silêncio 2012); Shaped as a Tree a solo about dis-quietness (Negócio ZDB 2016); Sacrum a magnetic walking (Negócio ZDB 2018). Since 2012 makes part of the project Walking from Teatro do Silêncio. She has graduated in the Contemporary Dance Academy (2001). She holds a master in choreography from Das Graduate School in Amsterdam (2016).
