Tuntunhi, a name proposed by one of the participants and accepted by all in a collective and participatory action, in Cape Verdean Creole means to “weave”, “intertwine”. That’s what we did to get here: we experimented, talked and improvised, together, exchanging stories and knowledge, in an intergenerational and intercultural walk.
The artistic proposal of the project is to unite people around the construction of a show in three stages – training, creation and presentation. The work process is very important and it is through that process that issues such as building trust in the body, in our imaginations, in our voice and even in the importance of the effect of these voices that go unheard in global communities.
We approach the stories, the paths travelled, the journeys from the place of origin, the objects-memory of these outer and inner journeys as a means of sharing among all. This is the common ground for building an imagination that leads us to the creation of the movements, texts and actions that are part of this performance.
Duration 60 min.
