“Letters that are not mailed cease to be missives for possible friends; they turn into archived things” (Peter Sloterdijk, 2009). Writings and testimonies of, and about, artists, in their varied forms – diaries, letters, lessons, and reflections – allow us to explore the creative process, as well as the reflections of aesthetics and philosophy on this theme, by traveling in a non-linear way through generations, epochs and art movements (looking at instances of romanticism, modernity, modernism, postmodernism, and contemporary art). Instead of becoming archival material, the writings become messages for their recipients and possible friends.

Theory Course
Aesthetics – Experience and Experimentation
7, 14, 21 December 2020, 4, 11, and 18 January 2021

Mondays 18:00 – 20:30

In the creative act, as in its reception, aesthetic experience tends to exceed the limits of perceptibility. Following in the path of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s transcendental empiricism, the course will approach this fact from the perspective of an aesthetics of the virtual, where the perception of forms can be amplified through the forces that trigger, populate and express them. 
We will study the following three main axes while establishing connections with different artistic processes and philosophical thoughts from other authors that sustain the meaning that passes through them: trace, time, minor.

Professorship
Body – B.A. in Theatre
01 October 2020 – 19 February 2021

Tuesdays and Thursdays 14:00 – 17:00

Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema – Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa

The aim of the curricular unit Body consists of developing movement perception and its expression, convoking different approaches that stem from somatic practices, contemporary dance, and internal martial arts. Throughout experimentation on the relation body-other-space-time, both the training and composition become ways of integrating tools for research and creation, and therefore developing technical and expressive skills. Deep listening of the movement of the body and imagination lead to the recognition of events and their small changes, as we continuously follow the difference of each moment.

Curation
Coalesce, in the space of the body in thought
Continuous and collective seminar on drawing, dance and philosophy
February 2020 – September 2021

Porta33

Coalesce, in the space of the body in thought is a continuous seminar of drawing, dance and philosophy, particularly on the body, which brings together a group of artists, philosophers, researchers, and teachers. The project will run bi-monthly, between 2020-2021, at Porta33, for a wide audience aged between 3 and 70 years old, with and without experience, also in previous projects of Porta33. Coalesce is a place for experimentation of the body and its philosophical reflection, through embodied practices of movement, drawing, reading, writing, and dialogue developed in a participative and collaborative environment. The nature of this project gives priority to artistic and philosophical research developed through the voice of each of the participants, in a regime of sharing the sensible between life and art. It is intended that the series of practices and theories, in coalescence, encourage the lived experience, the knowledge, and the revelation of oneself. With: Ana Godinho, Clara Bevilaqua, Dora Vicente, Emília Pinto de Almeida, Joana Pupo, José Gil, Manuel Rodrigues, Maria Filomena Molder, Mariana Lemos, Rita Pedro, Sofia Neuparth, Tomás Cunha Ferreira.
