the only ScreenDance Festival
in Lisbon

InShadow - Lisbon ScreenDance Festival is an innovative initiative from Vo'Arte and a reference in contemporary transdisciplinary artistic creation, emphasising the convergence of language between the image and the body, based on technology.

InShadow explores interdisciplinary atmospheres through aesthetic solutions and technical representation of the body on screen, on stage and in other platforms. Genres and language intersect in videos, performances, installations and exhibitions that present the vitality of a dialogue between established artists and emerging creators.

The program includes an international competition of videodance, documentaries and animation, performances, and a section for the youngster, LittleShadw, workshops, masterclasses, as well as exhibitions and installations, that expand the Festival throughout the city.


InShadow promotes contemporary creations and imprints new crossovers and views in the city of Lisbon in connection with the world. 

InShadow, the body imagined within the shadow.
