Considered the successor of Amalia Rodrigues, Dulce Pontes has collaborated with José Carreras, Cesária Évora and Andrea Bocelli, but her most notable alliance was probably with the Italian composer Ennio Morricone: in 2003 their Focus album earned a Golden Disk within just 20 days of its launch.

Pilobolus is a dance company founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971, which was named after a phototropic fungus that Jonathan Wolken’s father was studying in a lab at the time of the company’s inception. The fungus grows on cow dung and propels itself with extraordinary strength, speed and accuracy. The company tours domestically and internationally, performing works from its over 100-piece repertory as well as new pieces, created at a pace of about two per year.
Shadowland is a complex representation of a girl’s dream that feels alone and isolated by her family. During the performance, the little one starts a discovering journey where she meets several amazing characters.
