4th week of BoCA Online
BoCA remains as the reference for the Portuguese performing arts, with a regular programme that goes beyond the biennial format. If for some sectors this COVID-19 pandemic represented a turmoil in their activities, in the cultural field there was swiftness and willingness to introduce new ways of production and introducing publics, as is the case of BoCA.
Already in the fourth week of talks and online performances, right after names such as Bill T. Jones, Otobong Nkanga, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Meg Stuart, Tania Bruguera or Ana Gomes, BoCA is preparing another series of conversations, performances, interviews, readings, live streamings and partnerships with Tate Modern and Fundação Serralves. From 11 to 17 May, with a programme extended until late June, BoCA is now starring Dora García, João Pedro Vale & Nuno Alexandre Ferreira, Pablo Bronstein, Ailton Krenak, Mariana Tenger Barros and Constança Entrudo.
According to BoCA’s founder, director and curator, John Romão, a name that has persevered and invested in this art field, with a clear, critical vision and knowledge of what performing arts should be in Portugal, while remembering the urgencies of culture and cultural production, “more than recourse measures that arise from the impossibility of ‘normal’ compliance with an activity plan, BoCA builds from scratch a program of reflection on the state of the world and on the architectures of the sensitive that we now inhabit: the body, the house and the camera.”
