From the perception, in childhood, of a glass door where the outside world announced itself, to the challenges lived in front of a space sometimes too large and hostile, through the experiences of her dissolution and transformation of her body from rave parties and the plunge into the primordial moments of breathing and vision, the landscape for the Brazilian choreographer Michelle Moura is a gradual experience of conquest of space, a space in continuous entropy.

Paisagem em Linha is the second work of the collection Covered by the Sky.


Cobertos pelo Céu (Covered by the sky) is a project by Gustavo Ciríaco which revisits the experiences of Portuguese artists Jonathan Uliel Saldanha (Music and multimedia), Cláudia Dias (Dance) and João Gabriel Oliveira (Painting); Brazil’s Luciana Lara (Dance), João Saldanha (Dance) and Michelle Moura (Dance); Germany’s Siegmar Zacharias (Theatre); UK’s Rosie Heinrich (Visual Arts); Agentina’s Ana Laura Lozza and Barbara Hang (Dance); and Chile’s Javiera Péon-Veiga (Dance and Performance), whose works reveal multiforme and trans-disciplinar spatial poetics. By delving into the works of – and in dialogue with – European and Latin American artists, the projects intended to make visible and experiential the dynamic process through which their particular ephemeral architectures are created and help to rethink the unnameable they evoke. Working in very different artistic fields, these artists share a common line: the notion of territory and its poetic transformation towards a universe of its own.

On the tennis court located in the heart of Serralves Park,

v a s t i d ã o plays with the basic structure of diagonals to create an intricate kinetic game, where approximations and distances, additions and subtractions bring together the plan and the experience, the control and the empathy.


Gustavo Ciríaco is a Brazilian transdisciplinary choreographer and artist who swings between dance and visual arts, exhibition projects and installations in which the experience is the sharing engine with the audience. Being site-specific-driven, his work promotes the dialogue between context and architecture, geography and home, reality and fiction, in a permanent research on the broad field of the art of dance making. His projects include, among others, the exhibition Sala de Maravilhas and the pieces Gentileza de um gigante and Aqui enquanto caminhamos. Since 2018, he is artist-researcher at THIRD – DAS Research – University of the Arts Amsterdam.


Luciana Lara is a Brazilian contemporary dance creator, who funded, choreographs, and runs the Anti Status Quo dance company. Her work is known for its hybridity, experimentation, language research, transdisciplinary approach with non-artistic fields and dialogue with visual arts, link body-city and the new formats (installation, urban intervention, site specific, Internet and publications).
