As Filhas do Fogo: a multidisciplinary collaboration between Pedro da Costa and Músicos do Tejo premiers in Porto.
This year's Porto/Post/Doc edition welcomes the première, in Porto, of As Filhas do Fogo, an interdisciplinary show/spectacle that joins Pedro Costa and Músicos do Tejo. This collaboration had its first public presentation at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, in 2016, and later was exhibited at the emergent visual arts festival Rayo. The project portrays the escape of three young sisters from a devastating eruption of the Fogo volcano, in Cape Verde. Between the theatre, the cinema, the performance and the musical, the filmmaker and baroque music collective reinvented a spectacle that travels through days and nights, the misery, the darkness of the alleys and the invisible life of so many migrants.
The presentation will take place at Coliseu do Porto, on November 30th, at 9:30 pm. The tickets cost 12 euros and are already for sale on Coliseu’s website.
