The Bairro Alto Theatre, which is not in Bairro Alto (but almost), will soon reopen. It is a new municipal theatre in Lisbon. In the meantime, we are already getting started: first online and now across the city with a series of events taking place between day and night, the ground and the sky, nearby and faraway; so that we can look and listen while we are standing still or moving, upright or lying on the ground, or even sitting in chairs. For now, nothing we are planning is in the theatre (but close by); and nothing will be actual theatre, but intimate and unusual moments that rethink and transform everything that surrounds them.
Partituras para ir is also the theme for a conversation between researchers and artists about walking as a way of researching a city, its places and our relationship with them; and as an artistic practice that develops from connections that the bodies of the walkers establish with spaces around them as they open up passages through them and create places of permanence. The conversation will take place using the Long Table performative format, created by artist Lois Weaver, reproducing at the debate the atmosphere of a dinner-table conversation.
