Dança em Diálogos

Other Worlds

Venue: Cine-teatro de Alcobaça – João d’Oliva Monteiro

Não canteis a valsa, três cadernos em dueto

Contemporary dance

An inter-artistic ballet conceived for five ballet dancers and two pianists that proposes a hybrid performative model where the frontier between ballet and concert is dissipated. A live dialogue between music and dance that has as its origin point Fernando Lopes-Graça's Melodias Rúsicas Portuguesas and that convokes the intense and disturbing imagery of the visual artist Helena Almeida.

Timelessness thus becomes the desired environment for a multifaceted and dialogically contemporary performance.
