“What if your chair could fly?”. This was the challenge launched by Feirense visual artist Rita Pinto to 225 students from nine of Santa Maria da Feira’s basic schools, within the project “1 Voo sobre a Imaginação”, by Teatro em Caixa, to be presented at Imaginarius Infantil, a new section of the MEO Imaginarius festival.
The winners of MEO Imaginarius’ off section – Moradavaga, The Strings and Circortito – have been invited to work together for the next edition of the festival, crossing their artistic fields: installation, performance and clown.
In its 14th edition, the International Street Theatre Festival of Santa Maria da Feira is taking on the MEO Imaginarius naming, showing, once more, an innovating and provocative attitude in the field of performing arts.
MEO Imaginarius gives way for street artists to occupy the festival’s venue in a natural way, within a spirit of minimalist artistic intervention targeted to public space. All street artists are challenged to present their independent projects, provided they require no technical resources.
