MARGARIDA MESTRE – Everything Turns

CCL – Centro Cultural de Lagos

This poetry recital proposes a visually magical set, a game of projection and metamorphosis of images following the agility of the imagination.
A sound atmosphere that transmits and transforms spoken words into melody and breath. An experience of all senses into which our body is invited.
