With this show, Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz search the magic quality that emerges between sound and image. Can an image trick our perception about the provenance of a sound? Or can a sound lie to us about its origin? A show that, just like children, allows itself to jump from one thing to another and to make questions that are simultaneously metaphysical, ontological, aesthetical, banal and unpredictable.

About Sofia Dias & Vitor Roriz

SOFIA DIAS E VÍTOR RORIZ are a duo of artists/choreographers collaborating since 2006. The hybrid nature of their research, connected to a strong curiosity and need for experimentation, led them to create several shows, performances, videos, podcasts and installations, crossing different contexts and blurring limits between artistic fields.

Their performances conceived for stage, mainly performed by the duo, summon up a particular choreographic language in relation to text and voice, as manifested in the pieces A gesture that is nothing but a threat 2011 (Prix Jardin d’Europe and 1ºAerowaves Spring Forward) and What does not happen 2018, both still touring. Besides their shows in duet, Sofia and Vítor have been also creating with and for other performers, invited by companies, such as Companhia Instável 2010, or Companhia Maior 2019; and in their own productions such as Satellites (2015), Escala (2021) or their first piece for children, Sons Mentirosos Misteriosos 2020 [Mysterious Lying Sounds].
