Over a period of five weeks, OSSO Collective will inhabit TBA and its periphery with a sound installation, including three performances and accompanied by an online archive. These moments introduce three episodes of this invader’s occupation narrative, articulating several trajectories between four distant geographical points: TBA (Lisbon), OSSO (São Gregório, Caldas da Rainha), the rural landscape of Wiltshire (United Kingdom) and an online archive-place.
Four mini-FM radio transmitters and antenna-sculptures, distributed between the TBA foyer and the surrounding public space, serve as points of radiation for a sound installation experienced through mobile transistor-headphones.
Starting from the theatre’s foyer, the audience is invited to travel through a sonorous path using these mobile devices and accompanied by small map-posters.
Each path will be unique, considering that each individual will create their own sound route, meandering through the multiple interferences between the four transmitters.
