Live broadcasts of short performances commissioned by BoCA, thought through the relational body-camera-home device.

Embracing the virtual

You really need to understand your surroundings
and enjoy within the due madness.
If you don’t end up like someone who doesn’t support the crazy
nor the very meaning of life.
And she is so short
to have only one entry and one exit.
(excerpt from a poem by Bárbara Durão)

BoCA Sub21 is an education and artistic creation project promoted by BoCA. It was adapted to an online format, temporarily, during the pandemic period. BoCA Sub21 is an artistic laboratory where “things” happen; where we experience an artistic exchange inspired by the BoCA Online programming cycle and where we rehearse what means to be a spectator at home. Through meetings with artists, video and film responses by artists, developing performative actions at home or discovering new forms of trans-geographic artistic collaborations.
The group consists of 36 young people from 10 Portuguese cities and 4 foreign cities, divided into two groups.
