ABOUT

From 6th to 8th of November, LOOP Festival gives dance the spotlight on the online stage of Cineteatro António Lamoso in Santa Maria da Feira

Originated in 2017, LOOP was born as a pioneer festival in Portugal bringing street and club dances to the theater. The mission has been about providing opportunities to dancers and choreographers to experiment, develop and implement new ideas using vocabularies such as Breaking, Hip Hop, House, Locking, Popping, whether in its pure form whether influenced and crossed with other artistic expressions embracing a contemporary approach.

In 2020, the Festival brings the attention to the dialogue, the community and the dance created in the moment — freestyle. The event expands through the screening of a documentary, workshops and talks, punctuated by a night of LOOP STAGE, where Chey Jurado (ES) presents his solo “ÁGUA”, followed by MY OWN LOOP JAM - an explosion of improvisation with music and dance made for all of those who do not want to miss this edition.

In the midst of what we’re all living, LOOP embraces this new reality and mutates completely, presenting itself entirely online. Resilient, just like the dances it receives on its stage, the focus is on preserving the artistic diversity and quality, encouraging human proximity and actively reminding us of the importance of Art and Culture in times of physical and social distance.

6, 7 and 8th of November, LOOP, having its core team in Santa Maria da Feira, unites different geographies in one platform, and allows everyone to become a part of the festival.
