CCB, Blackbox

Première in Lisbon

Ana Libório, Bruno José Silva e João Estevens


COSMIC STAGE/PHASE acts as an emancipatory tool, creating a shared artistic- speculative imaginary. It proposes a narrative that gradually loses linearity, engaging the audience in a dynamic communication exercise. A real-time construction of an immersive and contemplative environment stimulates reflection on communication methods and the perception of otherness. This environment allows for the emergence of new possibilities of significance, balancing recognizable references with abstract elements. Although the references are recognizable, the purpose is to make room for abstraction. COSMIC STAGE/PHASE explores various concepts of automation in a non-linear, abstract manner, devoid of chronological order, clear meaning, or fiction.

It is the result from a collaboration between artists from different disciplines, blending languages to construct a unique performative device. It represents a dramaturgical journey that integrates performance and installation spaces, enhancing the reflection on art and technology.

Ana Libório

Ana Libório has studied theatre at the Lisbon Film and Theatre School (ESCT, Lisbon), philosophy (FLUL, University of Lisbon) and Dance, Context and Choreography at HZT/UDK, Berlin. In her performances she questions the hybrid body as a choreographic-digital representation in an intermodal performative practice.

His work has been shown in collective and individual exhibitions, in institutions and galleries, and in Artist-run spaces since 2016.
