Be part of the creation of a new dance company, CDM. Help us to make our dream come true! With your support we will make it!

We are creating a new dance company but the first steps are the hardest because no one programmes a dance company whose work they've never seen or hear of. So, we decided to build a new strategy: invite the community of national and international cultural entities such as agents and theater programming managers/producers, to come to Matosinhos and Lisboa, in order to preview the reduced version of our future show, TRIPALIUM.

TRIPALIUM redux is a short version of the final show we want to produce from September 2017 onwards. This first short version will allow us to show the cultural entities the content and aesthetics of the first creation of CDM, aiming to captivate these cultural programmers to buy or coproduce the final show.

This show has 3 dancers and one choreographer that live abroad; the rest of the creative and production team lives in Portugal.

Your donation for this campaign will support the transportation, food and stay for these artists during the creation period in Portugal, allowing us to bring to life the first version of TRIPALILIUM.

TRIPALIUM is a critical reflection about the labor conditions, modern servitude, and the consequent inhumane reaction of the society by accepting this reality.


About the author

CDM, an initiative of OIOAI! Associação, promises to challenge the human body and its perception by the audience, bringing back to the national stages the art translated into bodies that shape, defy and transcend their own limits.

CDM invites high-quality dancers whose agile and precise movements to mirror the worries and vision of emerging choreographers.

Through this selection and through the creative and production processes, CDM hopes to bring up socio-political issues that fracture contemporaneity, exploring interventionist and reflexive projects, and therefore promoting the community's development.

With its wide educative project, CDM intends to play a relevant role approaching people to art and people to people, contributing to a cohesive community, informed and healthy. Like this, dance assumes itself as a vehicle capable of promoting social equity and developing intellectual heritage.

    Gostaríamos de agradecer mais uma vez o vosso apoio nesta primeira etapa da nossa criação, o vosso apoio foi imprescindível! Gostaríamos também de agradecer a todos os que puderam estar presentes no ensaio aberto, foi um prazer poder contar com a vossa presença no estúdio e uma inspiração.
    Com o sucesso da campanha de PPL e o apoio da Câmara Municipal de Matosinhos, conseguimos realizar duas residências, uma para o projeto pedagógico e outra para o artístico. Daqui nasceram quatro ensaios abertos e dois vídeos promocionais, e conseguimos conquistar os corações e suscitar o interesse dos programadores e entidades promotoras da dança que conseguiram comparecer ao ensaio aberto. Estamos muito gratas e muito felizes pelo sucesso deste primeiro passo!!!

    Good Morning backers,
    Thank you again for your support, without you this wouldn't be possible. We would also like to thank all of you who could be present in the open rehearsal, it was a pleasure to have you in the studio and an inspiration.
    With the success of the PPL campaign and the support of Câmara Municipal de Matosinhos, we made two residencies, one for the artistic project and the other for the educational project. From this, four open rehearsals and two videos were born, and we enchanted the hearts of the programmers that could be present at the event. We are very grateful and happy with the success of this first step!!
    We already sent all the claimed rewards, if you didn't receive yours, please contact us through our email:
    Stay connected to the CDM news, our first public presentation will be on the Children's Day, 1st of June, at Teatro Municipal Constantino Nery, Matosinhos, with the educational project "Uma Bailarina Espe(ta)cular". The trailer comes out today so stay tunned! We love to have you around.
    Dancing regards,
