Bochecha — Sementes para um Futuro | Miguel Filipe

Bochecha, Sementes para um Futuro, by Miguel Filipe, is a musical and choreographic show for a trio of performers. How can we fulfill our desires if they are blocked by constant mental activity? Almost without leaving us a step, moving, achieving something… Either we stagnate, or we explode from so much frenetic activity. We then become polyrhythmic beings because we live in duality, between dream and decision, possibility and reality. It is not just about doubting these dualities, but above all about accepting them, affirming or exalting them. All music played live is inscribed in the contemporary classical repertoire for solo percussion. Freely inspired by the life story and poetry of Stella do Patrocínio.
