“Not everything we face can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced”.
James Baldwin


The stage as a place of unification, combat and utopia. And, before anything else, the sound. Always the music as the engine: to act, react ,resist, re-exist. To stay in the present and rehearse the craving for a new world and new ways on interacting. To accommodate the bothersome, to embrace the risk of failure. To sing, to dance, to dare communicating in a way which best suits a collective change intention. To refuse the discrimination and social injustices which persist and grow even larger driven by one more crisis. To rebuild, restore, re-humanize.

In a nocturnal time of (im)possibilities, Sílvia Real decided to take a dive into her memory of 3 decades in artistic repertoire, in a universe saturated of eclectic musical references, marking female characters and figurine ghosts. An intimate dive from which emerged words and songs with a renovated glow which, having been once familiar, are now appropriated by a (de)constructing band, delivering a voice to the movement which matters the most: empathy, cooperation, an idea of revolution.

So is Concerto nº. 1 para Laura, a call to reality and an appeal for action, to which Silvia Real summoned her old accomplices, the choreographer Francisco Camacho, the musician Sofia Sequeira, the researcher Simone Longo de Andrade, and the dancer and co-creators Beatriz Valentim and Magnum Soares.
