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.
