LOCAL GEOGRAPHIC

RUI HORTA – LOCAL GEOGRAPHIC

Local Geographic, Rui Horta’s third and last creation while Associate Artist of the Season, is a reflection on identity, a study of a “personal geography “, using the body as a tool to discover the world.

A work about the importance of loosing oneself; on turning loss in a method, especially when life experience tends to become a burden that prevent us to take risks. Loss, though as a method.

Every week, I was used to pick up my bike to discover a new trail and a new landscape. Usually, I set out early morning and returned before my day really began. It was like a prologue to an announced routine. Sometimes I lost myself…

There are people who go to Namibia or to Tibet to lose them (and spend a great deal of money …). And there are those who lose just around the corner, almost next to the doorway. For any creator doubt, loss and risk are the very substance of work, coexisting everyday: research and experimentation.

Somehow, from the three works I created to the CCB as associate artist of the current season, this one is the most narrative and also the most personal. A discourse on the quest for identity, in the opposite of plausible, at the border of irony. It could only be done by me and for myself or for a performer with whom I have been sharing a multitude of creative adventures over eighteen years, Anton Skrzypiciel. Many-sided actor/dancer/performer, a man so curious about live that he never tied anchor in any harbour, a major actor in one of the most important works I created.

This is a work accompanied by one of my usual accomplices, composer Tiago Cerqueira, actor/stage director Tiago Rodrigues and multimedia designer Guilherme Martins.

+ 4’33” (Tributo a John Cage)

John Cage chocou o mundo quando em 1952 apresentou a sua peça para qualquer instrumento solista ou grupo instrumental na qual os músicos permanecem em silêncio absoluto durante 4 minutos e 33 segundos. No total, são três andamentos de silêncio com durações diferentes que questionam o conceito da audição musical e do próprio concerto na tradição ocidental.
A Casa da Música e o IRCAM-Centre Pompidou encomendaram a diversos compositores + 4’33”, uma homenagem ao compositor norte-americano que resulta em novas obras com igual duração apresentadas no Porto em estreia mundial.

Talk Show

This has been another huge creative odissey!!

The stage, cenary, coreography and lyrics are Rui Horta’s work, for the video projections we are using an application coded by Rui Madeira. The immersive soundscapes and music belong to Tiago Cerqueira.

I’ve created visual environments, animations and textures to be projected on stage, in the photos below you can see samples of my work. “Video after the break”.

Rui Horta & Micro Audio Waves – Zoetrope

During the last months I´ve been working with Rui Horta and Micro Audio Waves on a show called Zoetrope.

My main task was to produce visual animations and motion graphics to be projected on 5 screens.
If you want to see the final result of an extensive team work join us at TeCa during the days 8, 9 and 10 of January, you can see more dates here.

Come Together – Rui Horta

I´ve started working with Rui Horta in September ‘ 08 on a play called “Come Together”.
My work consists on the development of visual projections on stage.
I think the most difficult task was to syncronize the animations with the coreography.. yet, the reward was the final result.. amazing!!

My partner Rui Madeira has done a great work programming the application where the videos run.
