PROJECT

ON THE NEW ART OF MAKING RUINS

The ‘On the New Art of Making Ruins’ project is coordinated by CIAC researcher Beatriz Cantinho. The project’s team also includes Diogo Alvim and Ricardo Jacinto, in musical composition, Filipe Pereira, Jácome Silva and Marta Cerqueira, as dancers and Suse Ribeiro in the sound design. The project, funded by the General Directorate of Arts, enjoys the support of several partners.

‘On the New Art of Making Ruins’ is inspired by the documentary, Havana – The New Art of Making Ruins by Florian Borchmeyer and Matthias Hentscheler, which presents a unique experience of the city’s ruins and their inhabitants, and explores the abstraction and translation of different premises associated with a movement of ruination and resilience – erosion, repetition, fragmentation, accumulation, renovation, destruction and reconstruction – in the choreographic and musical composition.
