April 2010, sala Suggia, Casa da Música
Inspired by the book written by José Saramago: The Elephant's Journey. A staged concert. Over the past two years, and under the direction of Rolf Gehlhaar, several institutions that support people with special needs participated in the project Instruments for All (Educational Services of the House of Music), which aims to develop musical instruments tailored to the particularities of its performers. It is in these instruments that the performance is focused in which electronic sounds are associated with the word, the movement and video.
On stage 70 people were presented with different physical and/or mental limitations. In such a vast and eclectic cast, some compose songs, others play, others sing or dance. Together, they gave a concert that was developed with the own narrative of Saramago.
Direcção: Rolf Gelhlaar
