Verbo - Performance Arte Festival & CHÃO SLZ

Launching of Verbo SLZ
September 18-21
Chão, São Luís (Maranhão)

An initiative created by Galeria Vermelho in 2005, Verbo Performance Art Festival is a non-profit platform that annually presents actions by Brazilian and foreign artists with different backgrounds and ages. The goal of the Verbo has been to extend the concept of performance art inherited from the 20th century, programming actions of artists and groups linked to visual arts but also to dance, theater, poetry, literature, music, graffiti and activism.

Created in 2015 by a group of artists and curators in a historic house in the center of São Luís, Chão occupies a shed in Praia Grande, São Luís, in 2017. Chão seeks to create an environment for exchange of knowledge through partnerships with independent artists, institutions and projects.

The partnership between Verbo and Chão intends to provide a more extended contact between the local artistic scene and the artists invited to the residence, leading to different dynamics that will be part of the next edition of Verbo in São Paulo and in São Luís.

The first action of Verb SLZ will include the reading of portfolios, visits to workshops and public presentation of local artists.
