01 – RADAR 360º »The ball of the lamps«


We all have a magical universe that we carry from our childhood. Inspired by the rituals and traditions that date back to the late ’60s’, the company was seeking inspiration for this creation in the famous “Ball of the five lamps”, original from the North of Portugal. Humanized lamps, autonomous, scattered at strategic points, gain characteristics of the spaces they inhabit. Lights go off, breathe, dance, interact and react. This show is a site-specific performance written for the festival. It gathers local artists with professional artists from the Company RADAR 360º, and celebrates the freedom of movements and lights, as a visual live scenario.
