Soul Of FAdo
By Nuno Silva
Sensual contemporary dance, soul bearing Portuguese fado and a flaming gondola are the main ingredients in this fire and dance spectacular infused with the steamy atmosphere of Lisbon Old Quarter.
Known for his muscular physicality and fine singing, Nuno Silva is an individual artist with a career spanning contemporary dance (Henri Oguike, Luca Silvestrini and Javier de Frutos), classical opera (Mahogany Opera, Cork Opera) and West End musicals (Cabaret, The Light Princess).
lightfires puts the fire into this romantic tale, and also into the tormenting fires of the underworld. A large fireball comes from the top of a burning gondola which moves through the performance space. As with any of our dance collaborations the pyrotechnics are choreographed as part of the whole performance.
