Title Aurora | Piece Length 40 min
Espaço Alkantara | 1 and 2 July | 19h00
This material was collected slowly. First, small cells appeared around a sanctuary, an event, a thing. Only then came everything that moves. It was a shapeless and empty mass. A heavy and incandescent mass, from which silhouettes rise.
Aurora is a glow that can be heard in space. The shadow of a mountain suggests its shape, as if it were a spot or a black spot in the dark. Uncontrollable, fragile and volatile. It is the clarity that precedes the dawn.
The beginning: “Please make some waves. Just waves.”
