Workshops, conferences, guided toura, concerts and performances.
More Or Less, But Less Than More is an installation-performance, like the two previous projects by Vera Mantero: “We Offer Shades”, in September 2013 in Montemor-o-Novo, and “More Or Less, But Less Than More – work in progress”, at Culturgest's 20th Aniversary in October of the same year. In these kind of projects Vera Mantero was interested in creating events where the audience can literally walk across the performance, visit it, activate it, feel itself inside it. She also continued her work on a thematical level: looking for actual ways of “getting round” some current ways of life, as much in environmental terms as in experiential / relational / creative / human terms. More Or Less, But Less Than More created contaminations between its activity spheres, in terms of contents (food sovereignty, experiential ecology, renewable energies, experiences through the body / senses / affects , etc.) as in terms of formats (from the most perfomative to the most formative).
The first of the previous projects mentioned above happened outdoors, on a hilly terrain. The second happened indoors, in the audience and proscenium of a theatre. More Or Less, But Less Than More took place outdoors and indoors and this time also between two city theatres, Maria Matos and Culturgest, creating a course of events in between them.
