José Antonio Portillo — Spain
Theatre · Installation — M/6+

Listen with your eyes. See, touch, reflect, experiment. This object is a gateway to generating individual, spiritual and imaginative experiences. A mysterious mobile library with a circular wooden structure holds unpublished manuscripts, texts that have never been published, scores, drawings, objects found in the rubbish, and cylinders with messages made of ropes and knots. Created by José Antonio Portillo from school and community work, this installation performance has travelled to different cities in Spain and Europe over the last twenty years and has arrived in Portimão.
