Moving Borders
 
MOVING BORDERS is a European project occurring in seven European cities and cultural institutions – Teatro Municipal do Porto, Hellerau European Centre of the Arts (Dresden), Le Maillon (Strasbourg), Ringlokschuppen (Mülheim an der Ruhr), Spring Performing Arts Festival (Utrecht), Performing Arts Institute (Warsaw) and Onassis Cultural Centre (Athens) -, where different notions of border are rendered visible through artistic practice. MOVING BORDERS generates seven different arks which perform as gathering places. Over the course of two years, it will be produced seven unique versions of an artistic concept, ARK, from the collective of British artists and producers, Quarantine. In each city, Quarantine will collaborate with local artists, creatives and citizens to build an ark, which can be built physical or metaphorically, and will be adapted to the unique demographic, historical, cultural and social reality of each city, providing a space for alternative activities and new encounters between people. The ark in Porto, developed by Teatro Municipal do Porto, in partnership with Cultura em Expansão programme, and co-curated by the choreographer and performer, Joclécio Azevedo, and the researcher and curator, Inês Moreira, operates as a “temporary cartography school”, providing a platform to read different contexts of Porto. The development of this school and its curricula will result from a participatory process collectively, along 10 months, engaging different groups, associations and authors which work from and/or with the communities and social and cultural contexts of the city.
