“On backstage of Poemário Vivo” is a journey to CMT´s first answer to adapt to the new circumstances caused by the pandemics. Poemário Vivo was created during the first lockdown and it allowed us to discover new approaches to perform and connect performers and audiences. Poemário Vivo paved the way to a series of further artistic projects as well as educational activities. It opened up a series of possibilities that will probably be integrated in our future projects, even if conditions return to “normal”, and it reinforced our convictions about the nature of artistic communication and the importance of creativity.
In the workshop we will share the ideas and strategies that allowed us to evolve from experiments to the creation of a live performance using the Zoom platform.
Note to participants:
There will be interaction and dialogue with participants. We kindly ask you to have your camera on during the whole session.
We decided to make this year’s festival free-of-charge not because we are fully funded, but we wanted to reach as far as we could to all children, families and schools across communities and continents. If you like our work and your circumstance permits, please consider making a donation. Your generous support will help keep the arts for children and young people alive.
