InShadow is an innovative initiative from Vo’Arte in co-production with São Luiz Teatro Municipal. In its 3rd edition, the Festival grows and affirms itself as a reference in the scope of transdisciplinary contemporary creation, highlighting the convergence between image and body and processes of artistic creation founded on technology. The vitality of an open dialogue is assured by joining the experience of consecrated artists with the visions of emerging creators.
InShadow presents in 11 days: 4 performances, 3 solo performances, 5 installations, 2 exhibitions, 5 workshops, 3 masterclasses, 1 talk and over 100 films from directors coming from 20 different countries screened in 6 special sessions, five video-dance, video-performance and video-art competition sessions showing 44 films from which 7 are an absolute premiere, 2 an international premiere and 35 a national premiere and three competitive sessions on the newly created DocShadow section, with 7 documentaries of creative processes. To 2012, 8 new extensions of the winning films from the competitive sessions are confirmed, to be held at cultural organizations throughout Portugal, Brasil and The Netherlands.
