Lecture - Portuguese Dance in the post 25 de Abril
This lecture will focus on Portuguese Dance after the 25 de Abril (1974’s Carnation Revolution which put an end to dictatorship and established a democratic regime). The main projects and esthetical options that make up the diverse Portuguese Dance scene will be viewed: the activity of the two main dance companies; the New Dance movement; today’s plurality.
