It will not be long until the Brazilian audience is captured by the listening in the exhibition of the Portuguese show recorded this year in a session without an audience in the region of Porto. There are moments with songs from Noel Rosa, Brazilian funk dancing steps, and a gospel song.

Expats from Rio de Janeiro who live there, the director and choreographer Renan Martins (who also works in the German city of Heidelberg), and the musician Frankão evoke songs from their homeland and make a tribute to the urban popular cultural expressions that turn public spaces into party environments.

The work seeks to activate states of search, observation, experience, contemplation, and critical thinking by implementing an environment highlighted by layers and gatherings of pulses. An atmosphere of organic union arises from this process, opposing itself to the cemented cut of the bare stage architecture in the middle of the pick-ups and speakers.

Instead of separating the traveler from the lands they cross, this metaphorical fly-over proposes its own construction. It embraces the DIY optics, the do-it-yourself since creators and dancers operate everything on stage, and the low-fi. The audio and performing imperfection contradicts the divide between interpreters and audience by allowing both to partake in the party.
