Marco da Silva Ferreira & João Pais Filipe
The performance and installation “Terra Cobre” challenges traditional Portuguese iconography and symbolism, with the rattles and their representations (Caretos, pastoralism, circus, etc.), to place it on an exploratory and sensory level. The project investigates a device that offers sound and choreographic premises based on material heritage, questioning its historical and cultural properties.
Repetitive, hypnotic and pulsating, “Terra Cobre” is a creation for unconventional spaces, which calls for the audience to be immersed around two of the most talented artists on the Portuguese national scene.
