Nuno Veiga was the Assistant Director for Rambert company member Miguel Altunaga on his choreography Re(Home) at Resolution, The UK's biggest festival of choreography, at The Place .
The Playground Rambert
Nuno Veiga collaborated with actor George Siena, both leading a fictional Dance Marathon through improvisational tasks.
Dance Marathons were an American phenomenon from the 1920's and 1930's, and in contests of human endurance, couples danced almost non-stop for hundreds of hours, some for as long as a month or two, competing for prize money. Before the development of reality shows dance marathons blurred the line between theatre and reality. During the session the participants were guided through a series of improvisatory tasks to create characters, devise scenes and movement material that led to a final presentation based on Dance Marathons as if they existed nowadays.
Spare Tire is a central player in the UK's participatory art landscape, having developed projects for 40-years with a variety of communities, such as adults with learning disabilities, people over 60, people with dementia and voiceless communities.

PERFORMANCE ART WORKSHOP (under-18)
This workshop had as its starting point the question - What is Performance Art?
We tried to use and explore relationships with new technologies, either using some interactive devices created by Filipe Pais (within the artistic residency that he developed at Galeria Saguão), and also developing a collaborative process of researching the uses of technological devices. as tools in the construction of meaning and archive of performative action.
In 2009, together with Dora Bernardo, led the Luzlinar Association's first Performing Arts Residence. The residency lasted one week at Feital (Guarda), and was mostly attended by young students from higher art schools. This residence was intended to be a space for artistic experimentation, without pre-established guidelines, challenging players to break down barriers in order to explore their creativity in an uncomplicated way by blending various artistic languages.
