Linha de Fuga – cultural association was founded in November 2018, at the same time that it held the first edition of the creation laboratory and international festival Linha de Fuga.
Based in Coimbra, it is an artistic programming and diffusion structure that aims to be an active agent in the development of critical discourses between art, culture, politics, education and society together with various local and international agents.
With the desire to stimulate the city and the region, sensitize the community, institutions and audiences to an approach to contemporary dance and other artistic areas, Linha de Fuga wants to break the barriers between art and knowledge, in a production and programming of experimental artistic languages, seeking the decentralization of the cultural offer beyond the large urban centers.
It is an association whose steps are taken by experimenting with formats of production, creation, research, training and programming based on local contexts, but always with an international perspective. Its main activity is the Creation Laboratory and International Festival Linha de Fuga, which takes place every two years, in order to deepen the relationships established with the artists who experience their processes there.
We believe that artistic production needs time, space to experiment and fail, deepening the relationships it promotes, and we take the political stance that society must produce less to live better.
