Dancers from 11 countries show “Face T(w)o” in Loulé

Show involves dozens of young people from 13 European cities

The show “Face T(w)o”, resulting from a project that brings together dancers from Loulé and the Algarve with dozens of other young people from 11 European countries, will be presented on Friday, May 24th, at 22pm, at Largo do Monumento Engº Duarte Pacheco, in Loulé.

The show is free to enter and involves 32 young Portuguese dancers between the ages of 18 and 25, «in a large-scale European production that brings together performers from 13 European cities on stage».

The initiative takes place within the scope of the European project PPP – People Power Partnership, of which Loulé has been part since the beginning, in 2020, and «crosses the work of young people from several countries, including Portugal, which has two cities in founding members, Loulé and Lisbon».

«“Face T(w)o” is a multimedia performance with stage props and projections that take the viewer on a unique sensorial journey into the perception of reality. The props – mirrors – are intended to force reflection on the different themes that occupy our reality, such as self-knowledge, the fragmentation of identity, vanity, lust, fear, among others. On the other hand, the aim is to encourage reflection on the different behaviors that each of us assumes in the face of the proliferation of messages, images and clicks that circulate on social networks», according to the Chamber of Loulé.

“Face T(w)o” is an integral part of the People Power Partnership (PPP) artistic co-creation project, implemented and coordinated by Aktionstheater PAN.OPTIKUM, in Freiburg, Germany. The project is funded by the Creative Europe Program and 14 European partners.
