Sinopse

A Roma proverb says that “the finest fire starts with small twigs”. From twig to twig, family to family, person to person, one lights up the flame of encounter. Music, dancing and singing—natural ways for Roma communities to celebrate, express themselves and communicate—fill houses, streets and boroughs with artistic performances of great beauty. ZHA! grows at the culmination of a long process of proximity, complicity, listening, creation and overcoming. Roma and non-Roma creators jointly cast a new look at a rich cultural and patrimonial heritage, in order to sound the Roma voice louder and farther, and to echo the right in the reverse and in the seams of both the city and society. May ZHA! be a fire that burns and is seen, from close and from afar, from outside and from within. — Visões Úteis

Author's bio text

Visões Úteis (Porto, 1994) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary, authorial project that produces itself among creation, programming, research, training and territory development activities. It has produced over 50 works in Portugal and abroad, including theatre plays, performances in the landscape and community performances, and it has also published books, and created and produced films and sound works. The collective is established in Campanhã, where in the last few years it has been finding aesthetic, political and social purposes for the development of the project. It has been a partner of the Porto City Council’s programme Cultura em Expansão since 2019, taking on the responsibility of programming and mediating the activities in this territory in close collaboration with the community. Visões Úteis has the financial support of the Ministry of Culture / Directorate-General for the Arts. Its artistic director is Carlos Costa, who shares the projects’ management with Ana Vitorino, Inês de Carvalho, João Martins and Jorge Palinhos.
