Madeira Projects

A series of performances developed over repeated visits to Madeira since 2013...

Som e Dança, Grutas de São Vicente

A cave is an instrument composed of the reflective environment and the materials inside it. It is also a performative space whose slow actions have been practiced over millions of years. With this conception as a starting point, dancer Elisa Arteta [ES], sound artist Chris Wood [UK] and vocalist Sarah Linhares [CA/PR] explored the caves of São Vicente, Madeira through sound and movement. They prepared a specific performance in response to this volcanic environment using the materials, acoustics and dimensions of the caves.
