10th edition | 2016/2017
Braga International Video Dance Festival

Braga International Video Dance Festival is a platform for diffusion, learning and development of artistic work with focus on the body and technology using VideoDance as means of expression. Contemporary artistic performative practices constitute privileged spaces for innovative interdisciplinary works, for sharing and dialogue, as well as contestation and tension, which deconstruct the boundaries of traditional performances and create new paradigms of emerging practices and discourses in today's world. However, this interest in the study of the interface between performance and technologies reflects the contemporary tendency of performing arts to interact with other disciplinary systems, integrating the technologies in their practice. The challenge we pose in this second edition of the Festival is the reflection on the concepts "performance" and "performativity" that have invaded transversely several areas of theoretical and practical knowledge, creating a shared conceptual atmosphere. Projects that include linking knowledge, diluting borders between arts, disciplines and technologies, and focusing on everyday and contemporary practices are therefore valued. The second edition will be held between April 21 and 30 . The show of selected videos will be held in a cultural space in the Braga City | Auditório José Sarmento- Mercado Cultural do Carandá . This project aims to promote and stimulate the cultural offer in the city of Braga, which in the area of ??multimedia arts has been growing and the commitment of a strong civic movement in the city to organize the submission to creative city Media Arts of UNESCO.
