The School of Arts and Design of Caldas da Rainha of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (ESAD.CR), proposes a summer course that reconfirms the performance legacy of the International Art Encounters in Caldas da Rainha, in the 1970s, in its own and current context. The School is located near Caldas da Rainha city center, in a Campus between pine trees and short distance from Lisbon, ESAD.CR is defined by its own conditions of incubation of ideas and creation in the disciplines of Fine arts, Theater, Sound and image and Design.

The summer course aims to contribute to establish and internationalize performance art and creative technologies, which is currently growing at ESAD.CR, reflecting concerns and tendencies in the world of contemporary artistic production. The course has technical support from the workshops and laboratories of ESAD.CR and takes place in atelier-rooms and rooms for movement, with the participation of invited artists/ researchers: Catarina Leitão (PT), Patrícia J. Reis (AU/PT) and Teresa Luzio (PT).

Participants are invited to engage in artistic creation with an experimental component, exploring discourses focused on body language, technology and art. By sensitizing the body as instrument and vehicle, exploring the nature of different materials, and through the contact with and construction of electronic devices. At the end of the course participants will present their results on live performance format, and open conversation to the community.

The course is addressed to all those interested in the relationship between body and technology. It is also directed to students of masters or bachelor’s degrees in the fields of Visual Arts, Audiovisuals, Design, Architecture and Performing Arts.
