rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 18.30h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.

Dancer, improviser, and choreographer Steve Paxton has been researching the “fiction” of cultured dance and the “truth” of improvisation for six decades. This catalogue accompanies the first retrospective look at his work and legacy. Interestingly, in the case of Paxton, almost none of the usual remains of dance – scores, photographs, videos, interviews – were made or even kept by the artist himself. Thus the works recounted in the exhibition in Lisbon as well as in this publication were all made and conserved by others. The focus therefore is not the visible, exterior forms that were produced by him, but the felt and sensed, the mindfulness of his unique way of inhabiting movement.
