Mónica has been collaborating with Carolina Fonseca Skydancer since 2003. They have been facilitating Danza Duende and Gipsy Duende Workshops and Retreats all over Europe and working together with many other artists for almost twenty years now. Check out their latest event, the Gipsy Duende Retreat: Beginner's Mind, that was held last August here. And their next one: Poetas Que Bailam em Nós here.
The UniVersus Ensemble is a musical group created by José Manuel Freire after the publishing of the "UniVersus" project. This literary and musical work, which was presented to the public in 2012, has several influences and languages. The concerts feature original repertoire that appear as sound illustrations of the subjects addressed in the book.
The Ensemble's performances are intended to inspire the public into connecting to the sacred dimension of Life, the Being and the Universe. In these troubled times, let us look for those moments of intimacy, allowing us to experience true rapture and introspection.
Salamantras - Gipsy Duende Company
SALAMANTRAS was created in 2003 in Portugal after musician Roby Lakatos asked Myriam Szabo to join him on stage with other dancers. They would only dance with his ensemble 10 years later, but in the meantime the group performed with several bands and musicians in different European festivals. Originally called SALAMANTRAS - Gipsy Duende Company, the group is a fruit of the Danza Duende vision: an intense investigation, not only on Gipsy Dances and Music from all over the world, but also on the very core of the human being, through the heart of arts as a path for education.
