Caixa para guardar o vazio [Box to Keep the Void] is a performing sculpture with an educational angle.
It was created in 2005 following an invitation by Teatro Viriato. This box is matter, form and also event. It is a place to explore with one’s body in a process of individual or collective discovery. It presents itself as a “closed wooden box” that is activated by the bodies of two dancers who unveil it in dialogue with groups of children using movement and voice. The space opens up, folds, unfolds and expands itself, thus establishing an atmosphere of communication and discovery that ends with the unveiling of the inside of the sculpture — that’s when we realise our body is also a place.


Fernanda Fragateiro  (Montijo, 1962) lives and works in Lisbon. Working with three-dimensionality, challenging tense relations between architecture and sculpture, the work of Fernanda Fragateiro enhances relations with the place, calling upon the spectator to perform. Some of her projects were the result of collaborations with other visual artists, architects, landscape architects and performers. She has exhibited her work in several museums and institutions at home and abroad.


Aldara Bizarro (Maputo, 1965) studied dance in Luanda, Lisbon, New York and Berlin. She performed for Paula Massano, Rui Horta, Paulo Ribeiro, Francisco Camacho and Madalena Victorino. Her debut as choreographer was in 1990 wit the piece me my self and Influências, which won an award at the IV Choreographic Workshop by the Lisbon Dance Company. She has been signing her pieces ever since and presenting them in several venues. She highlights the trilogy Love Series, Encaramelado, Uma Bailarina, A Preguiça ataca?, A Casa, Projecto Respira, Cara, O Baile, Sombra, Gráfico do Gesto and Volta. She was the artistic director of the company Jangada de Pedra for 16 years. She currently develops projects for youngsters and communities, crossing dance and other arts.
