International Videodance Competition

The International Videodance Competition, one of the central cores of InShadow Festival programming, back at Teatro do Bairro, between the 6th and 9th of December, with a total of 60films from 19 countries, presented in 5 sessions.


The diversity of visions aligned allowed us to choreograph a programme based on undefined systems of contrast and arrhythmias – small artistic, aesthetic and thematic cores, that challenge and complement each other, in a joint appeal, collectively singular, to provocation.


The curatorial proposal surges anchored in a current global vision, not only just the vanguard of the genre, but society in general, with a large majority of films focused in structuring themes, proposing renewed ways on reflecting the world we live in.

The result is a collection of balanced sessions between the most varied prisms: from traditional proposals, to constructions of more fictional nature, through conceptual experimentations around dance that welcomes the cinema, and of cinema that attracts dance.


As per usual, we have the presence of directors, choreographers and other international artists, in an assumed role to keep alive creative synergies that have moved us throughout all these years.
