Contemporary Dance


In this new work, Bruno Duarte proposes to cross his choreographic universe with the artistic domain of another creator, taking as conceptual basis the work of the multidisciplinary artist Horácio Frutuoso (1991). Carbono explores the idea of translation as a process that is not only technical but also creative and, in a way, transformative - the American expression lost in translation illustrates it well. By creating for an unconventional, real, palpable space, different from the uncharacterized space that is the traditional stage, it seeks to expand this concept to spatiality and to question the idea of the ephemerality of dance, asking: can dance leave a trace?
