OURIQUE + ALJUSTREL
Spring, the tempus first, it’s time to kick off the program of the fourth edition of the Atalaia Artes Performativas. We started in april with the proposals inserted in the Educative Service, spread all over the residencies and post festival period, involving all the local community. Educate and share looking for the construction of a sensible community is the driving force of AAP.
Between May and June we will host eight projects in residency of creation, in Ourique and Aljustrel, selected via an international contest. During two months, the artistas occupy several spaces of these villages, developing their artistic proposals in collaboration with local entities and community.
Contemporary creation is an open space where coexist the valorization of the individual and the plurality of sensibilities, of ways of perception, thinking and feeling. Art that provides this possibility of share, that valorizes the live experience, both of the spectator and the creator. It will be this art-alive we expect to find in the Atalaia Artes Performativas festival of 2017, as soon as summer begins, the maturation time, between June the 29th and July 8th, at Ourique and Aljustrel.
Atalaia Artes Performativas (AAP) is a cultural project that brings together a creative residencies program and a festival, crossing multiple areas of the contemporary artistic creation: from dance to theater, from music to installation, from performance to video.
It happens annually in the southern Portugal since 2013 and it’s based in a logic of an inter council network. Over 4 years, there were activities in Castro Verde, Almodôvar, Aljustrel and Ourique.
AAP was born out of the will of decentralize artistic production but it also aims to promote dialog and contemporary thinking , as well as formate audiences in the region. In that sense, Educative Service plays a fundamental role in the project.
The festival has been growing significantly. In 2016 more than 1200 people have passed by AAP among more than 20 activities. On the whole, the first three editions of AAP involved 3 municipalities and 7 towns (Ourique, Panóias, Garvão, Grandaços, Castro Verde, Almodôvar, Aljustrel), 28 artistic projects and 56 artists, 50 public presentations, 39 parallel activities, more than 50 sessions of educative service, 26 spaces, 17 nationalities and more than 30 partnerships.
