Slim Soledad
in English and Portuguese

We recommend wearing an FFP2 mask for the performance visit.

VIBRATIONS, TRANSLATIONS – an encounter of music, performance and dance – looks into the ritualistic processes of translation between sound vibrations and body motions. The performance investigates music as a way of solving contentions between the ‘human’ and the ‘spiritual’: the interconnectedness between the material and the immaterial experience of the world. Combining the selection of inanimate objects and pivotal elements of nature such as rocks and fluids, Slim Soledad and her guests explore how the vibrations can be decoded and encoded in materiality activated by movement. She looks for new connections within the inhabited bodies and envisions a new self, born out of multiple ritualized encounters.

General: The performance lasts approx. 45 minutes and uses English and Portuguese spoken language. It is suitable for audiences aged 16 and over. Strobe lights, dimmed lights, loud sounds and bass are used on stage. The performance includes light and relaxed moments, but also intense, heavy moments. Some moments can evoke feelings that take us back to a dream.

Audience area: The audience area on the grandstand is seated. There are two wheelchair spaces and two beanbag seats, which can be reserved or purchased at the online ticket shop or box office, depending on availability.

Early Boarding: If, for artistic reasons, the door to the auditorium does not open until very shortly before the performance begins, there is the option of Early Boarding. This is early admission for all people (especially with visible or non-visible disabilities) who want a specific seat or a more relaxed entry.
