DANCE AND CREATIVE EDUCATION
CREATIVE LABS FOR AND IN SCHOOLS
One of the strategic guidelines of this project, conceived by São Castro, is based on the development of multidisciplinary approaches, which privilege the intersection of Dance with different areas, promoting other formulas for approaching and developing audiences and creative thinking in matters that, from the outset, they may be difficult to relate. Thus, the challenge aimed at trying to relate them becomes a stimulus for exploring new processes of translation and content definition, reflecting an expansion of knowledge and development within the various areas.
Based on these artistic premises, the project DANCE AND CREATIVE EDUCATION was created, which proposes a crossing of Dance with curricular subjects and which aims to promote the approximation of two cultures, scientific and artistic; articulating the theoretical and practical fields through questioning practices between educational thought and the artistic world. Promote the development of
children/young people's confidence in their analytical skills and acquired knowledge, having the body and its movement as the action territory.
The Dance and Creative Teaching project, started in 2019, at the time produced by the Paulo Ribeiro Company, is based on the realization of three independent modules, with the themes: Dance and Literature, Dance and Philosophy and Dance and Mathematics, currently produced by Play False Associação Cultural.
The teachers Catarina Câmara, Joana Pupo and Pedro Carvalho assume, respectively, each of the modules, creating a workshop for reflection and theoretical-practical research to be presented to school classes from the first years of basic school to secondary education, in Portugal, as well as programming structures, seeking to capitalize on the interest/intervention of students in/(n)the arts and culture. All modules focus on transversal thinking and on the approximation of scientific and artistic aspects, because although science and art are individual instances, they inevitably specialize and become closer/related.
