TYPE TYPE TYPE WORLD, dance performance featuring EDEVA
MAAT Gallery - Oval Gallery - Valkyrie Octopus

In this peculiar and fascinating world, life is like a big typewriter.

Each dancer represents a letter in constant movement, contributing to the composition of visual words in the form of dance. Every movement is a syllable, a letter, a punctuation mark that merges into a unique and vibrant choreography. As the dancers move in harmony, they form words and phrases that echo the rhythms and arteries of life, reflecting on the interconnectedness and beauty of human communication. In a world where words have the power to create and mould realities, Type Type Type WORLD offers an inspiring vision of the power of expression in modern society.

The Eva Vieira de Almeida Dance School (EDEVA), established in 2014 in the historic centre of Oeiras, is an institution dedicated to shaping dance students into versatile and unique artists. With an approach centred on the expression of each student's individuality through dance, the school aims to develop dancers of excellence, capable of facing challenges with precision and artistry. In tune with a constantly evolving society, the school provides an environment where students can explore and grow, ensuring that each one stands out as a complete artist. In addition, the school is committed to promoting a culture of equity and justice, eliminating marginalisation and condemning racism and discrimination. Through dance, the school not only transmits technical skills, but also promotes values of inclusion and self-awareness, bringing its truth to the public and building a more just and conscious community.
