Be part of the genesis of CDM! Your support will contribute to the final touches of the creation of this new dance company.





We are creating a prototype of CDM's first show to be presented, at first, exclusively to the community of national and international cultural entities such as agents and theatre programming managers/producers.


TRIPALIUM redux is a short version of the final show we want to produce from September 2017 onwards. This first short version will allow us to show the cultural entities the content and aesthetics of the first creation of CDM, aiming to captivate these cultural programmers to buy or coproduce the final show. We have already booked two dates in March for this private TRIPALIUM redux showcase, both in Matosinhos and Lisbon.


This show has 3 dancers and one choreographer that live abroad; the rest of the creative and production team lives in Portugal.


Your donation for this campaign will support the transportation, food and stay for these artists during the creation period in Portugal, allowing us to bring to life the first version of TRIPALIUM.

From 25th February to the 1st of March,  Companhia de Dança de Matosinhos together with Academia de Dança de Matosinhos, will uphold an intensive dance course, taught by CDM dancers’ and international teachers. More information soon!
