EmbalArte CaDA 2022



EmbalArte is an artistic collective created by Ângela Ribeiro and Susana Rosendo, aimed mainly at young audiences, which has regularly received support from Ca.DA. In 2022, the support is towards the creation of a new performance and also to the touring of the previously created pieces “De Lés a Lés saberás quem és”, “As voltas que a terra dá”, “Do pé para a mão” and “O Museu Andante - Júlio Pomar”, by Ângela Ribeiro.

In 2022, the artistic duo proposes to carry out a work with and for a different audience, the group of seniors already linked to Companhia de Dança de Almada’s school, with which they intend to create a play in which movement, theater and the manipulation of animated shapes is to be explored.

The world is constantly changing, but in the last two years we have been experiencing a historical period of transformations that have led to the older population being greatly affected and, in many cases, the victim of some forgetfulness, arranging life stories, with no date of return. This gives rise to the desire to recover “lives” that were on hold, but that still have so much to learn and teach.
