Boris Charmatz: [terrain] Lisboa

23rd June – 2nd July 2022

In the frame of INSIDE OUT Festival
Culturgest, Lisbon, Portugal

After winning over the world’s largest festivals and museums with his project Musée de la Danse, French choreographer Boris Charmatz now embarks on a new and surprising adventure called [terrain]. With this project, Charmatz brings dance over to the public space, addressing urgent questions such as urban ecology, the democratisation of the arts and active participation.

[terrain] is a long-term project that seeks to implement, in various ways and in different places, the concept of a choreographic institution without walls or ceiling, in the middle of the urban grid. This implies being exposed to the sun and the rain, city noise and everything that goes on around us, but it also creates extraordinary opportunities, such as enjoying space without limits or borders, the natural scenery, the absence of formalities or the presence of an audience made up of passers-by.

In Lisbon, [terrain] will take place in the magnificent Alameda Dom Afonso Henriques with a crew of French and Portuguese dancers, and anyone will be welcome to join in.
