The Invisible Forest
The Invisible Forest is a multi disciplinary project produced by A Bela Associação and directed by choreographer and dancer Mariana Tengner Barros in collaboration with graphic artist Mark Angelo and the A Bela team of artists. The project arises from the desire to value nature, with a special focus on trees and the importance they have in the balance of ecosystems.
The creation process begins with the mapping of the oldest trees that still exist in cities, that are then honoured through symbolic actions resulting from dialogue with the local community, free workshops, short performances and video recordings, creating an autonomous, temporary and mobile performance space.
This last 11th of June of 2021, the Invisible Forest was at Cine Teatro Avenida in Castelo Branco to present the theater piece “Piece of the Heart: EXCALIBUR” from Mariana Tengner Barros, projecting its disciplinary crossovers in collaboration with the graphical artist Mark Angelo and the A Bela Associação team.
This project arises from the will to give value to Nature, with a special focus in trees and their importance on maintaining the balance in ecosystems.
