A duet for a city that is not there...
Under a virtual sky, a man and a woman sit at the table and engage with the idea of an ancient city... This invisible city turns into a cabinet of wonders that the performers of this dance carry at the trays of their bodies.

She is a choreographer and teacher, having worked extensively in choreography, dance education and the relationship between art and society. Madalena has created several site-specific works that involve collaboration between professional artists and amateurs of all ages and backgrounds, in a non conventional places, like factories, parking lots, museums, forests…
