Requiem “The only censorship that should exist is to censor censorship”

Absolute premiere on April 13th, Teatro José Lúcio da Silva, in Leiria

The company Dança em Diálogos, with its new creation making its absolute debut, celebrates, in this way, the fiftieth anniversary of the 25th of April, through a reflection through dance and summoning, among others, the musical work of Fernando Lopes-Graça.

Dedicated to the victims of fascism and censorship, in a tribute that recalls the memory and symbolism of an event and a transformation that is intended to be irreplaceable.

Founded in January 2018, under the Artistic Direction of Solange Melo and Fernando Duarte, the company Dança em Diálogos has as its first objective, to contribute to the plurality of presentation of dance shows throughout the national territory, in a decentralizing and comprehensive public dynamic. and contexts of action.

It was precisely based on this guiding principle, as a true demonstration of cultural democratization as a conquest of April and the construction of common territories, that Dança em Diálogos, under the artistic direction of Solange Melo and Fernando Duarte, created a program specially designed for the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of April 25th. This program, which is based on the relationship between Dance, Music and literature, is based on the challenge given to three writers, Cláudia Lucas Chéu, Ondjaki, and Elmano Sancho, to create three new literary works that presented different perspectives on the 25th of April and the past fifty years.

For Dance in Dialogues, celebrating half a century of a singular revolution that definitively implemented the full democratic regime is taking part in the courage and determination of all those who fought for freedom and democracy. Defending Freedom also means telling stories that cross the borders between reality and fiction and where Dance and video are positioned as vehicles of total free expression.

The program, in co-production with several theatres and municipalities from different parts of the country, has as its main creation the ballet Requiem_ “the only censorship that should exist is to censor censorship”, with its absolute premiere, at the Teatro José Lúcio da Silva, in Leiria, April 13, 2024.

The program will subsequently go on a national tour throughout the country, until November. It also includes an original creation for children called 50 x 25 Coefficient for Freedom, which will be present in several schools and theatres across the country, and several artistic residencies in school contexts, called Desassossego de Abril, in a process of co-creation choreography with different groups of students.
