OPEN CALL WIDE SPACE com Stein Henningsen e Sarah Gerats

Updated: May 22, 2023

The artistic residency "Open Call, Wide Space" with performing artists Stein Henningsen and Sarah Gerats at Mina de São Domingos concluded with a final presentation on January 27th.

Despite the freezing cold that night, the local community and our guests from Mértola and surroundings were with us and didn't budge until the end of the "Happy Days" performance.

The giants Stein and Sarah surprised us once again with their creativity, sensitivity and resistance far beyond what is common to "mortals".

In all, 6 performances were held in various locations at Mina de São Domingos, which involved the community in active and disturbing participation, generating critical thinking and reflection on determination, intention and the ability to resist and act on the territory.

Transform and realize all "impossibilities".

Thus, Open Call, Wide Space happened:

01/17 - Performance "Rocks"

01/19 - Performance "More Rocks"

01/21 - Performance "Door"

01/23 - Performance "70 kg of sand (75 kg for sure)"

01/24 - Performance "Bathtub"

01/27 - Final presentation "Happy Days"

The Malacate project would like to thank the entire community of Mina de São Domingos for their curiosity, sharing, involvement, cooperation and active participation during the artists' residency, without you ...

there would be no sense!

To our partners at Mértola City Council and the illustrious Café Estrela, thank you very much!
