Memórias de Pedra. Tempo Caído1998
Memórias de Pedra/Tempo Caído inaugurated the life of the Paulo Ribeiro Company as a resident structure at Teatro Viriato, in Viseu. It was the first work that made its artistic and production relevance clear. A symbol of the decentralisation of contemporary dance, arts and culture that crosses the creation of Teatro Viriato’s current artistic project. In this piece, choreographer Paulo Ribeiro reflects upon the Portuguese imaginary and what he considered to be one of the strongholds of national identity: the stones of the houses, where all that’s left of our greatness is registered.
