I’m collaborating with choreographer Né Barros in the performance CO:LATERAL.
The artwork is a result of my long time collaboration with Balleteatro, and my research in performance and virtual reality, conducted at Escola das Artes Univ Católica Porto, under the supervision of Paulo Ferreira-Lopes and Né Barros. In this performance, the body is projected and extended itself in a relationship of intimacy with interactive virtual reality. CO:LATERAL will be presented next Saturday at Teatro Virgínia, in Torres Novas, at 21:30h.
