ASTA – Associação de Teatro e Outras Artes

Aureo Gomez – “ Um Clássico”


Associação de Teatro e Outras Artes

A creation and programming structure founded in 2000. ASTA’s work focuses on five areas: Creations; Touring; Festivals; Educational Service and Research Projects. Its identity rests upon a transdisciplinary theatre-based culture. In our productions, we strive to define new methods and languages, either by reinventing stage classics or by creating out of an empty space. Besides the shows directed by the ASTA team, we also collaborate with a number of creators, such as Vera Mantero, Miguel Pereira, Filipa Francisco, José Carlos Garcia, A. Abernú and Marco Ferreira (Portugal); Lorena Briscoe and Cecilia Gómez (Argentina); Harvey Grossman (USA); Ruth Mandel (Belgium); ReveRso (Germany) or Pati Domech (Spain).

CIRCOLANDO – Espaço de Criação Transdisciplinar

Circolando has been working since 1999, under the artistic direction of André Braga and Cláudia Figueiredo. Besides the creation and divulgation of André Braga and Cláudia Figueiredo’s projects, its main activity, Circolando also supports the realisation of projects by its associated artists, while operating  and creation centre at CACE Cultural do Porto; for all these reasons, Circolando is described as a Space for Transdisciplinary Creation.

The concept of transdisciplinarity lies at the core of this artistic project: an intense dialogue between dance and theatre, with strong contributions from other artistic fields: poetry, visual arts, music, video.
Circolando works regularly with some of the most celebrated cultural structures in Portugal; its work has been presented in various festivals and theatres across the world.
