Compota in Brazil
Portugal + Brazil
Compota celebrated in 2014 its 10th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the residence that took place in Teatro Meridional, in Lisbon, represented our first step towards turning Compota into an international project. The program included training and creative workshops, performances, in collaboration between Portugal and Brazil. We started off by inviting the Brazilian actor and teacher Robson Benta from IMPAR – Instituto de Pesquisa da Arte pelo Movimento. The program also included the screening of the short movie “As Mortes de Lucana” from Alceu Bett/COOPERFILM.

Portugal + Norway
In 2014, with funding from the Fund for Bilateral Cooperation under the “Footprint – Arts and Education” Programme we visited the Kattas Figurteater Ensemble in Tønsberg, Norway. Out of this meeting came the interest and the opportunity to develop creative work around the fusion between dance and puppet theatre, within the context of a Compota residence at the Gamle Ormelet – TJØME KUNST OG KULTURSENTER in date to be announced.
