Under an invitation of the electronic music festival Lisboa Dance Festival, BoCA conceived the exhibition VISCERAL MONUMENTS, that will take place in 2 warehouses of Hub Criativo do Beato, on 9 – 10 march.

If dance is an image of movement, it is also the image of any true creative act. All authentic creation, necessary – the struggle for recognition of the other, of the diversity, a political gesture, the implementation of a belief – is a dance, in the sense in which this act, this creation, summons the body in its totality, it awakes internal and archaic rhythms.

The exhibition VISCERAL MONUMENTS presents itself as a dance, in the sense that it builds monuments to organic and festive bodies, tirelessly, through its beats. Like music, dance can be an expression of order, fascination and reiteration of the collective.
