Audiodescription at Teatro do Bairro Alto by

Tirana is an immersive sound choreography that explores singing physicalities, body pneumatics and the limits of the female voice, both in pitch and volume. The work addresses gender issues through the production and interpretation of sound. Inspiration is gathered from Portuguese folk songs and female polyphonic repertoire, which are traditionally sung in a loud and expansive manner and address themes of female labour, motherhood, and violence.
