Blue Summer School – A small step for Mankind

The Blue Summer School is a biennial training programme for contemporary arts that takes place in the intervening years of the Blue Summer Festival.

This year, it opens its doors in the city of Faro between 8 and 12 of July. More geared towards performance – dance, theatre and visual arts – it aims to support training in the areas mentioned, broaden references, follow trends, and explore new languages which are closely related to the past artistic legacy.
This year’s programme includes four workshops led by renowned national and international artists Vera Mantero, Marcelo Evelin, Jonathan Saldanha and Vasco Célio.
In four intensive workshops, they aim to promote new teaching and learning methods, encouraging artistic research and experimentation by addressing contemporary transdisciplinary issues.
The Blue Summer School is open to all interested people, artists, performers and other arts professionals in general, as well as students from all over the world.


The workshops will take place over 5 days , in the mornings and afternoons (see corresponding times on the form ). Anyone interested can sign up for 1 or 2 workshops* Registrations can be made using this form and are open until 3 July. Limit 20 people...
