Artistic freedom, experimentation and risk in experimental contemporary dance and performance.

The Self-Mistake project promotes artistic creation, in a context of experimentation and risk, in the areas of dance and contemporary performance. It supports the development of artistic processes, as well as the sharing of creations in alternative contexts.

By embracing risk and innovation, the Self-Mistake project encourages the experience of error in artistic creation as a fundamental step towards transformation and transcendence.
Self-Mistake promotes this approach with process support, support for artistic creation and fruition, in the form of financial grants, strategic and production consulting, and its own events.

Self-Mistake is a partnership between ORG.I.A and Produções Independentes.


The "self-made mistakes", result from the sense of risk, the will to innovate, to dive into the unknown. Just as in high-level sports or scientific research, the transformative artists of their time are those who are not afraid to make mistakes, until they discover something extraordinary. It is therefore urgent to give them the conditions that are best suited to creating in freedom and autonomy. Providing an environment for risk and error. Allowing new ways of construction, sharing and artistic enjoyment.
