Braga International Video Dance Festival is a platform for diffusion, learning and development of artistic work with focus on the body and technology using VideoDance as means of expression. Contemporary artistic performative practices constitute privileged spaces for innovative interdisciplinary works, for sharing and dialogue, as well as contestation and tension, which deconstruct the boundaries of traditional performances and create new paradigms of emerging practices and discourses in today's world. However, this interest in the study of the interface between performance and technologies reflects the contemporary tendency of performing arts to interact with other disciplinary systems, integrating the technologies in their practice. The challenge we pose is the reflection on the concepts "performance" and "performativity" that have invaded transversely several areas of theoretical and practical knowledge, creating a shared conceptual atmosphere. Projects that include linking knowledge, diluting borders between arts, disciplines and technologies, and focusing on everyday and contemporary practices are therefore valued. In future editions the selected videos screening will be online.
