Lab In Dance is a project that uses dance as a way of overcoming individual and social inclusion of people with disabilities and sees the difference in the mixture as an artistic object. Clara Andermatt and Henrique Amoedo found a very heterogeneous group - with different types of disability, physical or intellectual, or none at all. The Lab In Dance, a social inclusion project for the municipality of Santa Maria da Feira, started in December 2015 through a first residence with the choreographers Clara Andermatt and Henrique Amoedo and two dancers from the Madeiran group Dancing with the Difference. Henrique Amoedo argues that only by looking at the other for their abilities and not for their deficiencies is it possible to have artistic discoveries. Catarina Bento, despite her physical limitations, realized that dancing is something that makes her happy and realized that her limitations are not even that many, she achieves good results in the movements performed, dance to overcome limits. Isabel Pinto feels relaxed with the improvised choreographies during the performance. Jessica, completely dependent on the helpers of the institution from which she lives, frees smiles and giggles to the rhythm of the wheelchair pushed by Henrique. The company is formed and oiled, will have shows scheduled soon.
