As part of TRATUÁRIO, an interdisciplinary cultural studies project, Rodrigo B. Camacho and Sara Rodrigues have challenged the established authors and poets Dinarte Vasconcelos and Maria Fernandes to write one piece of new poetry each, after the theme “Place and Cultural Identity”.
Based on those texts, and accompanied Ana Salgueiro, a researcher of CIERL-UMa (Centre for Local and Regional Studies at the University of Madeira), they will produce two site-specific music and performance art pieces for the a grade II building in Funchal.
The new pieces will be specifically written for 5-7 local highly talented performers, aged 16-50.Additionally, the composers will then create neutral-space versions of the original pieces, so that these can be taken out of the specific place they have been created for and adapted to other spaces such as white-box-galleries or standard concert-halls.
The main aim in doing this is to examine to what extent music composition and performance art can meaningfully transport the traits and characteristics of a place into another.
