Sinopse

The first image that comes to mind when one thinks of sound is that of invisible waves travelling through the air, captured by our ears and interpreted by our brains. In addition to its acoustic dimension, however, sound has weight, movement and strength. A physical strength that goes beyond hearing and acts on the body, which receives and reacts to its vibrations, a tangible presence in the space surrounding us. The choreographic structure consists of takes—which can be defined as frames of the moment—and combines reality and fiction, expanding the physical space in which both action and sound take place, establishing a dialogue between what one hears and what one sees—or doesn’t see. Sound has its own history, and the body is continuously looking for one. — São Castro & António M Cabrita

Author's bio text

São Castro and António M Cabrita have been working together since 2011. They both received the 2015 Authors Award from the Portuguese Society of Authors for Best Choreography / Dance with the piece Play False. They were nominated for the same award in subsequent years. From 2015 to 2017, they performed and choreographed for the National Ballet of Portugal, for which they created Dido e Eneias [Dido and Aeneas]. In 2016, they both received the Silver Medal for Value and Distinction from the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon. From 2017 to 2021, they took on the artistic direction of the Paulo Ribeiro Company as a resident structure at Teatro Viriato. In 2019, they founded the cultural association Play False, whose purpose is to represent the two choreographers’ authorial work, as well as to promote multidisciplinary projects that foster the crossing of artistic languages. They’re both attending the master’s degree in choreographic creation and professional practices at the Lisbon School of Dance, Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon.
