Ubi Sunt. Porto. Cartography of an imaginary place attracted by the margins (social and geographical). Hybrid and eclectic project, it is the outcome of a audiovisual research residency of humam and urban exploration of an expanding city. Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt?, meaning "Where are those who were before us?". Reflective essay on mortality and life's transience, it emerges from that dialectic, of a and episodic and fragmented structure with a choreographed cinematography; where the memory intersects the contemporary. The project hosts two performances - 'One Life to Live' and 'Requiem' by Christoph Both-Asmus and counts with the participation of CESA.
