The year 2022 marks the centenary of the birth of Salette Tavares. Her polyhedral and interartistic work, as well as the experimentalist currents in which it was inserted, question the boundaries between the arts, the different fields of knowledge and their inter- and intra-discourses. Thus, her work still requires a transdisciplinary approach to a better understanding of her legacy.
The Institute of Comparative Literature Margarida Losa organizes, between October and December, a cycle of activities entirely dedicated to Salette Tavares. We promote conversations, debates, readings, the screening of a commented film and the promotion of a creative workshop for children.
This cycle is part of the general program Reencontrar Salette Tavares, One Hundred Years Now: Educating, Playing, Communicating. The activities organized by ILCML have the partnership of several cultural entities in the city of Porto.
On October 11th, at 7:00 pm, the session Extra Reading | Is there theater in Salette Tavares’ poetry? will take place at the São João National Theatre (Noble Hall), organized by Paula Braga and Rui Torres.
