As part of the artistic curatorship of Companhia Teatro do Vestido, partner of the Particular Universal project, Castro Marim will host, from February 13th to 17th, the Documentary Arts Workshop “Rescue Memories, Inscribe Memories”.
Teatro do Vestido has been observing, listening and studying in the municipality of Castro Marim since March 2022. Seeking to map the territory, the people and their stories, the Company wishes to contribute to a community archive of “small and forgotten” memories, accompanying the efforts of local associations in this regard.
The “Rescue Memories, Inscribe Memories” training is part of this project to contribute to artistic self-reflection on the territory. Over five days, at the Municipal Library of Castro Marim and after work hours, the Teatro do Vestido team, accompanied by historian Alice Samara, will monitor the works and support the development of artistic objects, inspired by ethnographic observation, collection of life stories, objects, documents or memories. The training shares with the participants various methodologies and tools used by Teatro do Vestido in its artistic creation practice over the last 20 years, namely in the field of documentary theatre, accompanied by a theoretical and practical incursion into the methodologies of oral history.
REGISTRATION is open until the 10th of February via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
