In the region of Santarém, there is a sociolect, created with the function of protecting and stimulating the commerce of the Minde blanket sellers. In the typical language of Minde, there is no translation for Dança, but for Dança 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 duo work based on the traditional dances of Serra D’Aire e Candeeiros. A dancer and a musician go to meet various groups, for a continued practice of this type of repertoire. In the underground of the piece, questions are asked from one side to the other, which appeal to compositional themes such as gender, eroticism, and weight. What does traditional dance ask of contemporary dance?
