FIAR, an event organized by FIAR/Centro de Artes de Rua, returns to Palmela for its 21st edition. With a biannual regularity, the Micro FIAR takes place between each year. 2021 is the year of Micro FIAR.
The first 3 shows of Micro Fiar 2021 are now revealed: ‘Ariadne Fiando e Confiando‘ by Leonor Keil, the third and last dance/performance show of the trilogy that Leonor Keil started in 2018 for FIAR; ‘Baixos e Altos’ by Carolina Ramos and Donatello Brida, a show by Cirque Conteporâneo coordinated by Dolores de Matos; and concert with Miranda.
Micro FIAR is characterized and distinguished for being a showcase of creations in progress, resulting from artistic residencies, adaptations and co-productions between the structure and the invited artists. It is based on the valorization of its territory and the community in which it lives, as a stage and vehicle for extolling tradition, always looking to the forefront. Search the streets, venues for conventional and unconventional shows, for an entire village to be both welcoming and welcoming. Striving for accessibility to culture at different points: social, economic, environmental and mobility.
Each FIAR is programmed and artistically directed under a concept. This year, after recognizing, apprehending and experiencing the ‘Void’ that has befallen our lives, towns and communities, we have started to explore that same space. We found in that place an existence that calls for transformation, construction, action and occupation.
