“Sinto Muito” is a sentimental exposition that takes form as a performance that aims to achieve the exposure of a contrast throughout the work, creating an environment in constant change. It is dedicated to questioning, both as a creator and as a spectator, what is the interference of the words tradition, pathos, beauty, reflection and comfort in the creative process and final product of a performance. How desirable they are, how essential, how much searched by the external eye and supported by institutions. Fluctuating between euphoria and stillness, we welcome the questioning about artistic perception and what are our limits and expectations towards art.


Joana attended Ginasiano Dance School for 15 years, having an intense dance training and the opportunity to participate in intensive courses with Malandain Ballet Biarritz and Carte Blanche. In 2017, she starts the Dancer/Maker Bachelor at ArtEZ University of Arts, in The Netherlands. As a performer, she has been working with Kale Companhia de Dança since 2016, having performed on stage with pieces by Helder Seabra, Christine Hassid, Gilles Baron, Eldad Ben-Sasson, Elisabeth Lambeck, La Tierce, among others. In 2019 she starts working with Companhia Instável, in works by Roberto Olivan and Helder Seabra. She has been invited to give workshops in Portugal, Bulgaria, Israel and Spain. As a choreographer she created “If only this was about food”, “Sinto muito”, and “Apneia” with Leo Calvino, all creations still circulating in the present moment. In 2021, she co-creates the multidisciplinary art festival Súbito and its residency program Órbita that already supported 30 young artists.
