The project Arquivo das Danças do Alentejo (Archive of the Dances from Alentejo) has a main vocation which is to communicate and build bridges and bonds between knowledge and people. The look we intend to give is sensitive to the poetry in others and sensitive to the humanity that exists in the gesture of the popular art and also in the structuring role that the traditional practices play in the individual and in the community. In this project we partnered with a team of collaborators from other entities such as IELT (Institute for the Study of Literature and Tradition) and Olaria Projetos de Arte e Educação (Olaria Art and Education Projects) in order to generate the best fruits for the dialogue and the practice over the repertoire of dances from Alentejo.
