In "LORE", Helder Seabra draws on his Portuguese background and that of his international cast and focuses on age-old rituals that we have forgotten or have taken on a different meaning. The result is a very physical and energetic dance performance. A ritual dance party.
Our lives are steeped in age-old rituals and associated folk festivals. These are great moments when we celebrate the solidarity between people. But to what extent are we still aware of these rituals and do we still feel connected to the original meaning?
