Fronteiras Explorers: Beyond the border, there's threat and seduction

Research output: Contributions to conferencesPaper


Fronteiras Theatre Lab is an Edinburgh-based theatre company that aims to develop international collaborations and transcultural work, focusing equally in research, professional development and productions. This paper will focus on a 3-week residency along the border between the cities of Santana de Livramento (Brazil) and Rivera (Uruguay). During the residency a multinational group of performing artists worked together, exploring the cities and the border itself, absorbing and exchanging cultures, knowledge and skills. The project also included guided and independent field activities, workshops and ‘barters.’ There was also a parallel project developed with local students from both sides of the border, focusing on encouraging them to respond artistically to the idea of a border.
