“João Pedro Viegas, Nicola Guazzaloca, Alvaro Rosso and Carlos “Zíngaro” come together for “A Pearl in Dirty Hands”. A story told by one, two, three or four voices, together and in turn, through trials, questions, answers, thoughts, gestures, signs and impressions, in the moment, in time and in space. Ten concentrated structures that escape towards sound and silence. Music is at the center of each player and each has the same importance, the responsibility of creating and contributing is shared, lived, exchanged. There is no hierarchy."
