In the region of Santarém, there is a sociolect, created with the function of protecting and stimulating the commercial exchanges of the Minde blanket sellers. In the Linguajar Típico de Minde, there is no translation for Dança, but for baile there are two: O-do-Barreiro and Jaime’s Class.
Jaime’s Class was created in 2018, with the Filhos do Meio Creation Grant from the Associação Materiais Diversos. It is a pair work, based on the traditional dances of Serra D’Aire e Candeeiros. A dancer and a musician go to meet several groups, for a continued practice of this type of repertoire. In the underground of the work were questions thrown from one side to the other, that convoke for the composition themes like gender, eroticism and weight. What does traditional dance ask of contemporary dance?
