António Poppe is the guest artist of this edition to participate in the artistic residency in which he will develop his work. During the process of creation, on September 13th, there will be held a performance/talk, in which it will be possible to get to know his body of work. This will be an important moment of exploration, reflection and knowledge of its path, enabling a broader perspective in dialogue with the public. Poppe creates between the word, the drawing, the collage and the meditation. Poetry always manifests by thinking openly to what comes, to performativity in its lavrameditation. It's also concretized through singing, declamation in an instinctive crossing of other cultures and civilizations, which transport us to other times and places.
