The Alkantara Festival is an international performing arts festival in the city of Lisbon.

The Alkantara Festival presents dance, theatre, and performance, as well as experimental formats at the crossroads of different practices in the arts and knowledge production. The programme features artists from different places, who often engage with urgent questions in contemporary society. As of 2020, the Alkantara Festival will be held annually, in November. Each edition of the Alkantara Festival begins a journey with meetings and activities – at Espaço Alkantara – that deepen the relationship with the festival’s artists, their practices and the issues that their projects raise.

She is not present in their pornography. She is not found in their eroticisms. She is not even a part of her own fantasy world.

CUTLASS SPRING is what sex might mean to me right now.

I will roam inside a question : How might I locate my sexual identity within a multitude of complimentary and seemingly contradictoryidentities – as a performer, as a mother, as a daughter, as a lover, as a stranger? I will map a sexual education – with all of its embodiments, fabrications, and disassociations. I will follow these trajectories toward their softest core so as to discover what I hold back and what I make explicit.

She will solicit her body and all of the many things that go with her person. She will realize what remains within her for sexual contemplation.

Inching towards uncensorship, engaging the infinite potential of everyday objects, CUTLASS SPRING is, at once, a manifesto and a heated reflection, an ethnography of sexual understanding and an archaeology of desire.

Dana Michel & Michael Nardone




Despite our best efforts, Dana Michel and her team have so far been unable to travel from Canada to Portugal. TBA and Alkantara Festival are thus forced to cancel the presentation of CUTLASS SPRING, scheduled for November 25th and 26th at Lux Frágil.
