Barco Dance Collection
A project initiated and performed by Dinis Machado (SE/PT),
Barco Dance Collection is a project were Dinis Machado, invites other choreographers, to create a short solo (10 to 15 min) for him as a dancer.
It is a collection of dances rather then a collection of dance performances (in the interdisciplinary sense of a stage performance where the light, the sound, the set and the costumes build something together). The proposal for the choreographers is to think that the space were this dances happen is not the room we are in but within the body itself. This is a collection of dances where dance is looked and worked on as something autonomous.The project has arrived to a public through evenings where a group of dances are shown together. Barco is designed to be presented anywhere. This collection is a gathering of practices rather then the objects that surround it.
