Selvática Ações Artísticas (Selvática Artistic Actions)
Created in 2011, Selvática Ações Artísticas is a hybrid experience of a group, producing company, artistic space, and creative platform of shared management, artistic residence, and exchange. A mutating experience that is frequently cohabiting different formats that allow deepening into diverse languages. Due to national and international prizes received, Selvática was able to present their artwork around many Brazilian cities, as well as in other cities in Latin America, Europe, and Africa. Through The House of Selvática, which opened in 2012, they develop a work based on exchanges and shared residence programs. Among the main leitmotivs that move the group is the construction of a workspace for the permeability among artistic languages, hybridism, and the review of the concept of Cabaret.
The House of Selvática
The Last 8 years The House of Selvática has proposed an ongoing programming, produced mostly in a freelance way, valuing the interchange and exchange amongst artists and audience. Space is organized through a shared management the occurs with Selvática and fifteen other artists in residence that take turns in different functions and artistic researches. Maintaining the structure of a house and not changing it into a typical theater one or a rehearsal studio format, the House of Selvática supports itself financially almost exclusively from the cultural programming developed in the house: workshops, theater performances, art showdowns, exhibitions, parties and residencies. The House does not work as a headquarter for a group of artists whose aesthetics are common, but as an environment where differences interchange. The House of Selvática is mainly a stronghold for our utopia.
