Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz

Performances para o Alkantara (Performances for Alkantara)

Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz present a series of four improvised or barely rehearsed performances at espaço Alkantara. Some are based on material from other pieces, previously unused or recontextualized; others appropriate exercises from their research processes. Each performance is underpinned by a desire to decompose or reduce the work to its basic elements: body, voice, objects, sound and text.
