What if the word poetry took wings? If images, sounds and gestures could be the raw materials in which we play and dream, could they be the “new words” of a collection of audiovisual poems tailored to our need to be together?
Poemário Vivo is born from Poemário, a “shelf” of poems made collaboratively by a group of artists working from home, drawn from CMT’s creative universe and from the relationship this group has developed with Fábrica das Artes over the last few years through working on projects such as Pianoscópio, Gamelão de Porcelana e Cristal, ZYG and Mil Pássaros.
Created in a “here” and “now” that are multiple and the product of the time we live in, these poems are transformed and incorporated into a series of online performances where the audience is invited to be the breath of what happens, the inspiration for what is built live.
Companhia de Música Teatral (CMT)
Companhia de Música Teatral explores music as a starting point for an interaction between various techniques and languages of artistic communication, set within an aesthetic ranging from “scenic music” to “musical theatre”. CMT has developed its work in a collaborative effort, joining academic research, artistic production, technological creation, community involvement and the dissemination of ideas regarding the importance of the musical experience, in particular for the younger age groups. This work gains form in many diverse ways: shows, workshops, educational projects, itinerant pieces, among others, and takes it upon itself to integrally develop artistic and educational aspects, as expressed by the title of the current work “development of artistic/educational constellations”. The work of CMT, developed for and with children, has been especially relevant being internationally recognized for its aesthetic originality, for the solidity of the scientific grounding and also for the warm reception by the general public.
Companhia Música Teatral has benefitted from the regular support of the Portuguese Republic, is a member of RESEO and has presented its works in Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Denmark, Poland, USA; Canada, Germany, Belgium, Finland, France, Austria, South Africa, Lithuania, Macau and China.
