Festival of Contemporany Circus and Artistic Creation in Unconventional Spaces

A body is defined with a limited portion of matter. In contemporary circus and in what we want for LEME and for its (un)definitions, that portion is mutant, volatile, ephemeral but infinite in its manifestation and strength. Matter, here, as a deformed scenario, things as they are not and the flesh and the elements that are not known if they are body or scenery, but which are all raw material.

LEME returns to its place. In the second edition, we start from the matter so that new paths are opened and new languages ​​for the circus are created. Not only remains the focus on artistic creation and unconventional spaces as improvised stages, but also reinforces the challenge to reflection and critical thinking about the contemporary circus.

The festival takes place for five days, one dedicated to the Circus Forum, which promotes reflection meetings between professionals in the area. In addition to the international shows, the support for Daniel Seabra's artistic creation, short itinerant shows from the NAVEGAR section, as well as various training courses for professionals, students and families. From December 5th to 8th, LEME challenges artists and audiences to think and touch the unlimited possibility of matter.

What is LEME?

LEME is an innovative festival that explores the new languages of contemporary circus and artistic creation for unconventional spaces in search of different creative approaches in confrontation with experimentation. A transfiguration of the usual look of the cultural space of our times, opening doors to new artistic perspectives, focusing on multidisciplinarity and difference, making the festival a space of collective enlivening for all ages. Inspired by a desire to create a new context, focused on the contact between Portuguese creators and the international critical mass, LEME responds to the aspirations of a rapidly evolving sector, representing a space of opportunity for Portuguese contemporary artistic creation in these fields, while promoting the confrontation with international trends.


With a temporally decentralized festival and from a programming that has the circus as its base language, LEME outlines a broader project that aims to leave ballast far beyond the four days of the festival.


The festival operates in six distinct domains that cross its vision of programming and broaden its spectrum of action to the context of audience development. Ideas such as internationalization, novelty (national premieres), capture of family audiences, promotion of meetings for specialized audiences and discovery of new territory are concepts that describe the guiding thread of the project that aims to create references and gain new audiences. In addition, it aims to engage new contexts, broaden artistic contact to new languages, transform the community's view of the circus, move beyond the classic image and transport the audience to new realities or new contexts, create opportunities for new generations to contact, experience and observe distinct international and disruptive artistic visions.

Strategic objectives

Bring the community closer to other contemporary artistic practices.

Recognize the sector and create conditions for his qualification.

Streamline the cultural facilities of Ílhavo.

Position the region and country on the contemporary circus international circuit.

Create conditions of international attractiveness for professional agentes.

Enhance cultural tourism by counteracting the seasonality of events.

Strategy

Between the desire to bring the local community closer to new contemporary artistic practices and, simultaneously, taking advantage of the new national look at the circus, comes LEME. Portugal is a sunny country with conditions for the practice and programming of street arts. With the new tourist flows there is a national reinforcement for mass mobilizing events and representative of the various territories. However, the creation, production and programming of street and circus arts in Portugal, despite some good examples, is still very punctual. Therefore, the contemporary circus and street arts are an area where supply and demand are unbalanced where demand is much higher than supply. It is in this context of opportunity that Leme emerges. A festival that aims to create references, support training, create space for thought and networks.


Ílhavo, through its cultural project, 23 Milhas, has a network of equipment and events that gives it a privileged place to create this winter festival that breaks, among other things, the seasonality of circus events. Without losing scale and dynamics , LEME benefits from several excellent equipment to accommodate artists and the public.

Programmatic Guidelines

NATIONAL PREMIERES

Based on a strategic objective of positioning the festival as a national and international reference, LEME's central programming axis highlights a group of companies and shows from the international circuit in its first presentation in Portugal. The artistic program of the 2019 edition of LEME is in the final stages of development, with the inclusion of 9 national premieres, distributed over the 4 days of the festival's agenda.

SUPPORT FOR CREATION

LEME challenges Portuguese creators to develop new artistic projects, viewing the festival as a space for experimentation and thought. In contrast to the international reference programming, two Portuguese companies are annually challenged to develop new works addressing the dynamics of the contemporary circus and the challenges of creating in unconventional spaces.

MEDIATION

Parallel to the activities of creation and programming, LEME develops different mediation actions involving different audiences (from the school audience in laboratory activities, through the community in residency activities, young people and emerging artists in debate and conversation actions and the general public through open trials).

TRAINING AND QUALIFICATION

In an embryonic process, the festival program includes training sessions with different audiences and objectives. Young people from the region are invited to transform their views of the contemporary movement in the circus context, or professionals from other areas are challenged to understand dynamics and languages, as well as innovations in scenic development.

PROFESSIONAL ENCOUNTERS

The days of the festival yearn to become a meeting point for the circus sector in Portugal, around a common space, open to debate and inviting national and international professionals to an environment of informal knowledge and sharing. In 2019, the international CIRCUS FORUM takes shape, in an intense day of debate and information, complementary to the activities of artistic programming.

INTERNATIONAL VISION

Catching its position of preferential meeting space for the national artistic community, in this area, LEME aims, since the first edition, to face an international positioning, open to debate and to the new, going beyond the mere involvement of international artists in official programming, with their participation in debates and conversations capable of enhancing critical thinking and bringing new challenges for the sector in Portugal. Every year, Ílhavo specialists in various areas visit the debate and training program. On the other hand, the active presence in international professional networks allows the festival to create bonds and peer confidence, developing a larger reference space on a larger scale.

International Networks

LEME integrates Ílhavo and the region in the international circuit of the contemporary circus, stimulating the involvement of new audiences in the city. Portugal, through the integration in this network, places itself in a privileged place in the sector, ensured by LEME's ambitious project for the creation and programming of contemporary circus in unconventional spaces.
