THE WEATHER ™ is a dance show composed by the kaleidoscopic effect of multiple duets: the duet between Mariana Tengner Barros and performer and creator Elizabete Francisca, the duet between these and the dancer and choreographer Luís Guerra, between the real and the virtual, between the two-dimensional image of the video and the real image of the body in motion, called “live” or i.e 3D, a duet between all of this and the psychedelic band of Cacilhas – “JESUS K & the sicksicksicks”, without forgetting the dialogue with the choreography in the eyes of public.
