TÂNIA CARVALHO AND MATTHIEU EHRLACHER
The instruments played by Tânia and Matthieu, saxophone and erhu, and her collaboration with the Casa do Minho de Lisboa Folklore Group, enable the embrace of this new form of experimentation with tradition and songbook. The songs are dismembered from their original form to be placed in the construction of a sound journey.
The Argentinean iconoclast, playwright and theatre director Rodrigo García returns with an audiovisual creation, written and produced remotely during the lockdown period. Not theatre, but a green screen (chroma key) and five exceptional performers materialise the director’s overflowing imagination. Angélica Liddell, Denis Lavant, Florencia Vecino, François Chaignaud and Volmir Cordeiro give themselves, body and soul, to this experiment.
Jamaican-Iranian filmmaker and photographer Khalik Allah, based in New York, runs a workshop for the first time in Lisbon, in which he discusses the spiritual implications of his work, namely the use of photography to capture the essence of a person from a non-judgmental perspective; the recognition of all people as a light, and as a child of God; the choice to find beauty everywhere and in everything around us; and the use of photography to build intimate relationships.
In “Brasa”, Tiago Cadete traces one of the lines of his theatrical research, that of the enquiry and critical approach to the historical relations between Portugal and Brazil, accompanied by a group of creatives-performers from diverse backgrounds: Isabél Zuaa, Julia Salem, Keli Freitas, Magnum Alexandre Soares, Ana Lobato, Dori Nigro, Gustavo Ciríaco and Raquel André.
When releasing "Hair of the Dog", his first solo album, Gabriel Ferrandini brings to the Champalimaud Foundation's open-air amphitheater a performance that precisely reflects this state of openness to new artistic experiences: with the Gulbenkian Choir he explores the contemporaries possibilities of operatic singing, with the voices succeeding each other in successive loops (canon), raising issues of memory, traps and liberation.
“Water in a Heatwave” is a new durational piece for eight performers and is the artist’s most challenging project so far, in terms of scale and duration. In pairs, the performers clash their bodies into each other atop a series of pedestals, creating numerous tensions within the space.
ANTÓNIO POPPE E LA FAMÍLIA GITANA
“Música Cigana Camões Yanomami/A Soma dos Seus” consists of a performance/concert that combines the poetry of Camões, texts by Davi Kopenawa (from the Yanomami indigenous), with Gypsy Music. This encounter creates a communicative composition of original expressions.
Through deceleration, inhibition of the sense of sight and a kinetic and somatic approach to the body and its movement, André Uerba and the performers explore different ways to get to know and feel each other. Bodies that meet, coordinate and communicate non-verbally, opening a space that is understood as political.
