Sete Dias de Inverno CaDA 637x232

Video Dance
Directed by Henrique Pina | Choreography by Bruno Duarte
Premiere on March 6th, 2020 at Auditório Osvaldo Azinheira – Academia Almadense, Almada.


Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival that took place in worship of Saturn, god of agriculture.
For seven days in December, Rome was transformed and social norms were reversed, in celebration of freedom and a new agrarian year.
The spirit of these festivities passed from people to people, overflowed borders and remains centuries later under various names and forms, adorned by the customs of those who welcomed them.
In the villages of Trás-os-Montes, in the north of Portugal, rituals in praise of freedom, youth and pagan gods continue the symbolism of other times. A celebration of life that spreads through the crowd.
And the people dance.

O Fio autoras CaDA 2020

Dramaturgy by Ana Lázaro | Choreography by Inês Pedruco
Premiere date to be announced


"O Fio" (The Thread) talks about the relationship between people: about the threads that connect us and that allow us to feel close to each other. The way certain threads guide us, free us or make us feel safe, but also tie us up, get tangled up and hard to tell apart.
In a show created from the language of children and focusing on childhood thinking, we’ll explore the idea of ​​distance: physical and metaphorical, playing with and exploring the emotions associated with human connections, achieving autonomy, family and affective relationships, and the feeling of loneliness. This is a space in which we build a history but also look to raise questions, ideas and impulses. A space in which we try to listen to the voice of children and young people and research their perceptions about their own ability to generate threads.

Espetaculo 30 anos CaDA b

Show marking the 30th. anniversary of Companhia de Dança de Almada.
Created by Bruno Duarte, with the participation of current and former dancers
Presentation on September 18th and 19th, 2020, in Teatro Municipal Joaquim Benite, Almada


In the year in which celebrates 30 years since its creation, Companhia de Dança de Almada proposes to develop a new choreographic work, under the direction of Bruno Duarte, which focuses on two events in 2020 - the celebration of 60 years of "Psycho" (1960), by Alfred Hitchcock, and 40 years since his death (1980).

In this challenge, the choreographer proposes to take a contemporary look at the historical object, in a dialectical exploration between the present and past. The notion of “suspense” will be one of the main concepts to work on, but also irony and meta-drama.

In addition to the current artistic team, former dancers from Companhia de Dança de Almada will participate in the show, in celebration of its history and work.
