How to be emerging?
Is there an ‘expiry date’ for being an emerging artist? What if an artist’s career veers off the trodden paths and traditional routes, and keeps on emerging in new environments and in new shapes? Pedro Penim is a founding member of award winning Teatro Praga (Plague Theatre) in Lisbon. Teatro Praga define themselves as a group or federation of artists, with a coat of arms and a history. When someone asks who they are, they usually propose a rephrasing of the question, since they are something different with every show or day that passes. Still, they rejoice with the established order and find their own unpredictable variation to be a way of enlarging the concept of predictability.
The ground floor of this venue, where Claustro is located, is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
