What is Xistórias?

The event presents the participatory artistic work developed with the villagers of the Schist county of Gois, held during the month of November by two artists, a sociocultural animator and a computer programmer, which happens on the 23rd of November 2013.
The aim is to create a site-specific performance with the villagers, based on ancient and contemporary stories, in family and day-to-day activities and expectations about the future of this region, crossing land and field materials with digital media technology.
Some moments of the performance will be transmitted in real time via the Internet to the association Salamandra Dourada, in Lisbon.
