LEME - Circus Events - CircusTalk

LEME explores the new languages of the contemporary circus and the artistic creation for unconventional spaces, searching for different creative approaches, in confrontation with the experimentation. An active transfiguration of the traditional vision of the cultural space of our times, opening doors to new artistic perspectives, focusing on multidisciplinary and difference, makes this festival a space of collective connections for all ages.

A body is defined as a limited portion of matter. For the contemporary circus and for what we want for LEME and its (in)definitions, this portion is mutant, volatile, ephemeral, but infinite in its manifestation and strength. The matter acts as a deformed scenario, things are not what they seem, flesh and elements uncertain if they are body or scenery; all of them raw material.

LEME returns to its berth. In this second edition, matter is the starting point, establishing new ground and new circus languages. The focus remains on artistic creation and unconventional spaces as improvised stages, strengthening the challenge for reflection and critical thinking about the contemporary circus.

The festival takes place over the course of four days, one of them dedicated to the CIRCUS FORUM, promoting reflection meetings between sector professionals. International shows, support for Daniel Seabra’s artistic creation, short performances from the NAVEGAR section and various training courses for professionals, students and families. Between the 5th and 8th of December, LEME challenges artists and audiences to think and embrace the limitless possibilities of matter.

Organized in partnership with 23 Milhas [Município de Ílhavo] and Bússola.
