Jardim Interior
Jardim Interior promotes the acquisition of artistic, educational and relational skills through a group of practical experiences lived over the course of a week of intensive work.
The Companhia de Música Teatral (CMT) has developed a series of artistic practices that establish educative and social links from infancy. In Summer 2013, as part of the Opus Tutti project, an experience named Jardim Interior had a particular impact on the participants (children and adults) and on the audience (babies and their carers).

Implicit in this course of training is the creative process within which is built an artistic experience for families with babies, which takes place in dialogue with nature
This experience was the culmination of an artistic residency and of a series of workshops with children, artists and educators carried out during the course of that year. The knowledge acquired made us think of a training model based on the mobilization of cognitive and emotional elements, experienced through a creative process in which the final performance, for parents and babies, is prepared. It was thus that, in 2015, we worked on this new idea and created the Jardim Interior Immersive Training, first given at the Gulbenkian Foundation as part of the GermInArte project. Within this project we sought to foment dialogue between various professionals and to bring to fruition the ideas of a “total art”. Throughout the process of preparation, with the objective of the performance of the final work, the following principle “subjects” are included: voice and movement; vocal soundscape, also with the use of unconventional instruments; Edwin Gordon's music learning theory; communicative musicality; music as a mediator in human interaction in infancy; music as an instrument for human development.

Jardim Interior is a unique creative process, resonating with the “soundscapes” and the “human landscapes” of each place in which it germinates, culminating in an artistic experience for families with babies carried out in an open-air space, in dialogue with nature.

You are working for a culture of peace and I was very happy to know that you exist and that beautiful experiences like yours are possible.
I will keep you in the warmth of my heart and my mind remains alert in order to continue to observe experiences like yours. “You are working for peace!”

Marie Stutz, Director of Association Nationale de Recherche et Action Théàtrale



The movement opens my voice
Stories behind the eyes
The body as a vibratory house
The silences
The allowing it to happen
Travelling between the known and what we
do not know

I feel pretty
Ageless and in peace
I feel a body full of life
I feel like a piece that fits into a state of
permanent awareness

I see myself as part of flock of birds.
Sometimes I fly differently, in search of
different sensations and then I return to the
flock.
There is a kind of honey that envelops the
whole environment and attaches us to each
other
The body is no longer mine, it stayed in the
garden
I see myself through the others
I see myself different, transformed

I am taking with me a bit more of myself
and others, I am taking with me a garden
where I walk
I am taking with me a desire to germinate
May the butterflies remain for a long time in
our feet.
