MARCO DA SILVA FERREIRA
31 years old, dancer and choreographer
To be associated artist cements the work Tiago [Guedes] and TMP have been carrying out in favour of my career as an emerging artist. It also provides me with the opportunity to mature a few ideas and to assert myself as a creator. I have only a small number of creations to account for, and it will be a way for me to grow with the Theatre during the next two years, and for this institution to help me catapult myself into a more consistent universe.
What will this partnership amount to during the two seasons?
In the scope of Paralelo – Approach Programme to Performing Arts, I will work on an on-going project with teenagers – some deaf, some others musicians – to make a dance piece together with composer Filipe Lopes. It is about the way focus varies between image and sound. There’ll also be the rerun of “Brother” and a new creation that premieres in May 2019. Furthermore, I’ll carry out a series of workshops in May 2018 during DDD — Festival Dias da Dança. Finally, I’d like to point out a collaboration between myself and Jorge Andrade (another associate art- ist over the next two seasons from mala voadora), which premieres in 2019.
40 years old, theatre director
It pleases me. For a long time, mala voadora’s productions stayed away from Porto. Every now and then, we presented our work at Serralves. With the opening of TMP, we started presenting our works on a more regular basis. They were even coproduced by TMP, and they premiered in its theatres.
In how many performances and activities will this invitation result in the near future?
mala voadora already set out a programme for the next two years and some of our productions, namely the one we will premiere next, which is a coproduction with TMP, will be presented here at Rivoli. It is called “Amazónia”, and it will be presented in January. Throughout the two years, we will also present other performances – some are coproduction premieres and some are reruns, like one of our plays with choreographer Miguel Pereira, “Wilde”. There’s also a work titled “Manual do Trabalho e Felicidade”, to be developed in partnership with Paralelo — Approach Programme to Performing Arts, and we will premiere a new work called “Dinheiro”, which will discuss the way mala voadora relates to money.
