Lote was an artistic residency project that promoted a context for dance experimentation in the city of São Paulo between 2011 and 2018. It stimulated an environment of shared work practices and the exchange with artists from different disciplines. In 2013 Lote became a resident project at Casa do Povo – a space dedicated to non-institutionalized cultural practices, which encourages experimentation in the contemporary arts, also offering new ways of thinking about the role of public spaces in the city of São Paulo. The five editions of Lote were subsidised by the Municipal Program of Dance Promotion for the city of São Paulo (Fomento à Dança) (Nov 2011 – Mar 2018) and established cooperations with institutions such as Goethe Instituut São Paulo, Centro Cultural da Espanha – CCE/SP, Institut Français do Brasil e do Consulado Geral da França, as well as numerous Dance Festivals in Brasil.
