alkantara festival

The alkantara is the largest festival in Lisbon dedicated to performing arts, on a par with similar festivals in other European capitals. The festival, a biennial event, on even years, invests in a programme of contemporary artists from theatre, dance and other performing arts. It aims to give visibility to Portuguese contemporary performing arts through commissions and co-productions, to create moments for artists and professionals from European and other worldwide cultures to meet up and to increase the public's interest in contemporary performing arts and "non-western" creation.
