Sara Inês Gigante (residency)
March 29 - April 10
Where I was born, there’s an annual festival in which I dress up in my grandmother’s Lavadeira dress to parade in the procession. The streets are painted with colored salt during the early hours of the morning and improvised desgarradas are sung to the sound of concertinas, and there are also these big puppets called Gigantones that enliven the city. On those days, the bagpipes and drums are my wake-up call. But these are some of my traditions. I want to discover others and make them mine. And after tonight, make them yours, too.
