Artist residencies programme
Campo Aberto — Artist Residencies Programme is one of the pillars for the artistic development of several companies and artists. In Teatro Municipal Campo Alegre, eight companies and projects develop LONG-TERM RESIDENCIES, comprising production facilities, rehearsal studios and stage presentations. Five areas will be represented, turning Campo Alegre into a real creative lab with Casa da Animação, Companhia Instável, Drumming Grupo de Percussão, Erva Daninha, Estrutura, Medeia Filmes, Nome Próprio and Teatro Experimental do Porto. The SHORT-TERM RESIDENCIES take place in the two hubs of Teatro Municipal, bringing to Porto artists from different latitudes, which later on will present the work resulting from these residencies. The main thrust of the CROSSED RESIDENCIES programme is to encourage artistic creation through a network of international partners that ensure the conditions for artistic residencies. Current members are Teatro Municipal do Porto, NAVE — Creation and Residency Centre, CCNCN — Caen’s National Choreographic Centre in Normandy, and Charleroi danse / Choreographic Centre of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, Teatros del Canal, in Madrid (Spain) and CN D — Centre Nationale de la Danse, in Paris (France) and Associação Artística and Cultural Mindelact (Cabo Verde).
