Entrado

 

Guitarist/Composer & Workshop Assistant.
May 2010, Prison of Custóias, Porto (PT).

 

The “Entrado” project culminated in a public performance that took place inside the prison of Custoias, nearby Porto, in May 2010.

An ”Entrado” is the new guy on the prison block, and this project was about exploring his feelings and rituals through theatre, dance and music. The performers are all prisioners themselves.

My role in “Entrado” was to give instrumental support to Ala dos Afinados, the prisioners choir led by Jorge Prendas, and to compose music for some specific moments of the performance.

“Entrado” was a project by PELE in collaboration with the Education Service from Casa da Música.
