Cabraqimera* is a dance piece for a skating quartet addressing a physical and technological contemporaneity. Based on speed sports, a spatial organizational system is created in order to establish a set of codes for occupation, interceptions and encounters. The plastic and hypnotic dimension of the gesture is evidenced by an autonomous light dispositive that reveals negative and positive spaces, projecting the body to an extreme otherness and opening the ground for fiction.
*Cabraqimera is presented in the context of Rede 5 Sentidos, of which Teatro Micaelense is a member. It was the only project in residence during Walk&Talk 9.5, in July 2020, in partnership with Arquipélago - Centro de Artes Contemporâneas.
