The Wind

O Vento, cartaz O Vento, cartaz O Vento, cartaz

THE WIND is more than a show. THE WIND is an original performative experience which invites the audience to take part in the performance, after participating in a short workshop which takes place immediately before the show. And the audience will no longer be just audience, but also a member of the artistic team, developing a collaborative work and transforming itself in performer and playwright.

The creative process of THE WIND began with a trip to the windmills of D. Quixote, in Spain, followed by a residence in a small fishing village in Portugal, with the purpose of trying to find an intersection between a universal, classical collective imaginary and a popular, local one. The final performance deals with a fragile community standing before the power of the wind, in a poetic attempt to find a balance between culture and nature.
