Reacting to Time – Portuguese in Performance aims at actualizing the specific bodily memory of the first experiences of performance art in Portugal. Since 2014, Vânia Rovisco has been running workshops to transmit to participants a performance that has been transmitted to her by the artist who created the performance, such as Identificatión (1975) by Manoel Barbosa and Il Faut Danser (1985) by António Olaio.
At this new stage, Fernando Aguiar transmitted the performance Expresiones y interaccion (1997) to Vânia Rovisco (1st transmission) who, in turn, transmitted it to the artist Bruno Humberto (2nd transmission). With this knowledge, Humberto ran the workshop to transmit directly to the body of artists, students and researchers a part of the corporeal history of Portuguese performance art.
