The workshop is directed to artist-researchers with or without experience in João Fiadeiro’s Real-Time Composition, but with experience in other improvisation and composition techniques in dance, performance, or theatre. The workshop will be predominantly practical with moments of theoretical incursion through the sharing of tools-concepts that support this practice. The Portuguese will be the reference language, with the possibility of abstracts in English if there are foreign participants.

João Fiadeiro

Every year, the donation of the archive REAL to the Serralves Museum by choreographer, performer and thinker João Fiadeiro challenges us to broaden the possibilities of divulging and presenting one of the most exemplary collections of Dance in Portugal, of which the artist is the protagonist, while consolidating the role of the Serralves Museum as a place for memory (as well as for the immaterial arts) and the sharing of knowledge.

João Fiadeiro founded REAL Company and Atelier Real (1990-2019), a laboratorial, artistic teaching structure based on an experimental, transdisciplinary, and international programming.

In 1995, in this artistic context Fiadeiro created a tool for research and practice called Composição em Tempo Real (CTR) [Real Time Composition], a system of composition and improvisation that was initially systematized and shared together with his collaborators in the creative process.  In a second moment, it would become an instrument to explore modes of dramaturgic writing in the field of dance and was studied, developed, and used by various artists and researchers. From 2009 onwards it established itself in the territory of research and broadened its sphere of interest and applicability beyond the boundaries of dance and even art.
