Who are the new migrants? And what desires do they have when they migrate to the country that colonised them? Continuing his theatrical, visual and sound research that challenges a critical look at the historical relationship between Portugal and Latin America, Tiago Cadete’s new project takes the form of a large-scale installation, “Concerto”, for the first time.

This installation was created from interviews with 30 migrants from 20 Latin American countries, trying their luck in Portugal and Spain, whose testimonies make up the text of this performative installation. At Fábrica da Cerveja, in Faro, we hear a migrant symphony, a concert made up of multiple voices of Latin American migrants. The capacity for listening and curiosity that is activated in the spectator, through 20 speakers pointed in their direction, makes them witnesses and accomplices of a sound score that reveals contemporary migratory processes in juxtaposition with colonial history. A concert that makes us project, through listening and imagination, the body and the processes of crossing that each of them made until arriving there, in front of us.
