LAWAL / Covered by Sky+info
16 - 24 jul / 17h - 20h
Gustavo Ciríaco is a choreographer and contextual artist whose work moves between the performing arts and the arts of image, architecture, anthropology and landscape. Gonçalo Lopes is an architect who develops projects where the fields of architecture, urbanism, art, construction and education intersect. Choreographer Javiera Peón-Veiga has her research associated with the exploration of the body's potential, its perceptive margins and the study of corporeality as an open and porous system under construction.
Covered by Sky is a transdisciplinary project focused on the relationship between landscape and art to create a collection of interactive performances and installations. The project is driven by curiosity to discuss how the creation of space and landscape experience intersect in the poetic signature of unique artists from the United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina and Chile in music, dance, photography, sculpture, painting and performance.
On a stroll through the Alerce Andino Park, home to the ancient pine trees of the Chilean Patagonia, a woman is faced with her finitude and temporality in the face of the eternity of natural elements. United by what flows, prints and has no name, space becomes time and the day becomes the saga of a vertigo. LAWAL, cypress in the indigenous language Mapuche, names this walk in the rural property of Pico do Refúgio. In it, we resume the experience of a choreographer in the Chilean landscape reenacted in the Azorean territory, a tour-installation conceived in collaboration between the choreographer Gustavo Ciríaco and the architect Gonçalo Lopes in dialogue with choreographer Javiera Péon-Veiga.
