Corpo + Cidade is a festival created in 2014, the year in which Balleteatro moved to the 5th floor of the AXA Building, in Avenida dos Aliados, at the invitation of Porto Lazer/Câmara Municipal do Porto. The new house inspired the creation of a festival specially dedicated to the public space, promoting a reflection on performative art in that context, accessible to all.

The concept, the reinvention of the city, promoting new urban experiences, in an encounter/crossing through the contemporary languages of dance.

Humanizing, bringing closer and, in some way, disturbing the senses, by creating new connections to space and to the relationship with architecture, are also aspects that have run across the Corpo + Cidade festival since its creation.

In 2016, with the creation of DDD - Festival Dias da Dança, balleteatro, as a partner, integrates its festival, Corpo + Cidade, in this great event dedicated to Dance and with programming in several cities.

With this collaboration, Corpo + Cidade keeps its function, the programming for public space, becoming designated Corpo + Cidade DDD OUT.
