ABOUT

+ FESTIVAL

SINGULAR is a season of interdisciplinary artistic practice devised by Terceira Pessoa. Its programme is characterised by the meeting of various artistic disciplines and consists of artistic works that resist superficial attempts at categorisation.

The season takes place in the Fábrica da Criatividade de Castelo Branco – a new space dedicated to artistic practice and cultural projects, where practitioners from different disciplines of art and performance can come together and collaborate. As such, the programme has a strong urban, contemporary and experimental component. Using a unique and SINGULAR approach, the season promotes experimentation as an expression of creative and critical freedom, and as a tool that enables innovative ways of thinking, both individually and as a group.

 

+ SUI GENERIS OBJECTS

Being experimental and participatory in nature, SINGULAR encourages the presentation and sharing of sui generis objects that question the territory and sociocultural specificities of the Castelo Branco region.

 

+ SINGULAR ARTISTS

SINGULAR takes place during the final three months of the year, with work being presented every month. A total of 7 pieces will be presented per season.

 

+ COLLABORATIVE SPIRIT

With this season we wish to establish a movement that values and develops culture outside the big cities. This will be achieved through the presentation of artistic vocabularies that are proudly contemporary in nature, and a programme of artists that have singular perspectives on the contemporary world. The season will unfold in a collaborative and participatory spirit that promotes access to culture via relationships based on dialogue.

 

+ MEETING OF DISCIPLINES

SINGULAR proposes that interdisciplinary interaction between different areas of artistic expression can diversify the ways in which we relate to culture, namely through participation and enjoyment. This proposal demands a renewed perspective on forms of artistic intervention and the concept of cultural democratisation.
