CE | All ages
Duration | 45 min.
A magical universe has lived within us all since childhood. Inspired by rituals and traditions dating back to the late 1960s, this production is based on the famous “Baile dos Cinco Candeeiros” (traditional ball held in the north of Portugal).
Autonomous human lamps placed in strategic positions take on the characteristics of the spaces they inhabit. They turn on, turn off, breathe, dance, interact, react…
This artistic performance is part of an installation art concept, where dance and light give life to a living visual scene.
