Portas Abertas: Glottis de Flora Détraz e Camille Lacroix

2 de maio, 19h
Espaço Alkantara
Entrada  livre

Glottis is a duo project between the plastic artist/sound designer Camille Lacroix and the dance performer/choreographer Flora Détraz.
In a performance-concert, Glottis will take the cross-shape to invite the audience to an immersive experience where sound images and visual sensations blur.
The two performers will perform in a moving set, alluding to a cave-grotto, a glottis and a bird nest at the same time. As a ethological study in a fantasized landscape, this proposition will plunge us into the abyss.
This bird-women or mad-Pythia duo will get to grips with an unknown language to access occult forces.
Following on from the other plays of the company PLI, the voice will be the main subject matter of this research. We will question its supernatural and prophetic powers this time.
