The Cine-Teatro Louletano receives on November 19 (21:30 pm) and November 20 (16:00 pm) the artistic creation Vale, which was born in the scope of the project “Movimenta-te – Trajectories of Cultural Programming in Network”.

It is a contemporary dance show that brings together eight dancers, six musicians and a group of approximately 40 people, of all ages, on the same stage.

“Vale speaks of the south, of southern Europe. It speaks of man's relationship with the land, a land made up of sea and river. When the river decides to command like an ocean, it overflows and invades the land with the force of a bull”, explains Madalena Victorino, the choreographer responsible for the show.

“Vale talks about work, talks about men and women and the abyss that the energy of this relationship contains. He speaks of the party as the oldest of celebrations. It speaks of the game that, in the arena, puts slaves and animals on the path of death”, continues the choreographer.

Madalena Victorino adds that “Vale is a moving image experience that touches the viewer's skin. Images that lift from the earth what is horse in man, what animal may hide in the activity of the soul. In a naked but alive setting, sonorous and human, we find a spectacle in which live music captures both the almost brute force of the crowd and the sweetness of the smallest gesture. A work also about the pleasure and vertigo of being together”.

“Movements of the dance code meet with everyday gestures and actions that come from the land. The movement choir, which is working in this piece by people with no performative experience, challenges the dancers and evokes what is universal and extraordinary in non-verbal communication: the sensual, telluric and affective value of the bodies that, when writing in space and in movements of a disconcerting simplicity open to a possible and profound reading of the human condition and the condition of the times we live in”, he concludes.

This show is a creation of Madalena Victorino, with music by Carlos Bica, and which received the 2010 SPA Authors Award for best choreography.

Tickets cost 5 euros.
