Linha de Fuga – cultural association was founded in November 2018, simultaneously with the first edition of the creative laboratory and international festival Linha de Fuga.
Based in Coimbra, Portugal, it is a structure of artistic programming and diffusion with the aim of being an active agent in the development of critical discourse between art, culture, politics, education and society, combining various local and international agents.
With the aim of stimulating the city and the region, of raising awareness in the community, institutions and audiences so that they form a closer understanding of contemporary dance and other artistic areas, Linha de Fuga
wants to break barriers between art and knowledge, producing and programming experimental artistic language and seeking to decentralize the cultural offer beyond the great urban centres.
It is an association which experiments with production, creation, research, training and programming formats, starting with local contexts but always ending in an international outlook.
Its main activity is the Creative Laboratory and International Festival Linha de Fuga
which takes place every two years, with the goal of deepening the relations established with the artists that already experimented with these procedures.
We believe that, in order to deepen the relationships it promotes, artistic production needs time, space to experiment and fail, and we assume a political posture that society should produce less and live better.
