Velvet Carpet is a durational object that exists in a state of constant reconfiguration. It is the beginning and the end, one time and again, weaving and changing and repeating and changing and repeating. It is a place that loses and gains its origin while detaching from it to achieve reconciliation. It is place of reunion and communion, conscious and unconscious, shared by strangers and non-strangers; a non-communicational node of that, paradoxically, communicates through (in)visible elements. By means of sound frequencies, body movements and video, Velvet Carpet entwines past and future with the here and now, transforming itself in a floating landscape that reveals the immaterial matter that surrounds us - the ethereal - through frequencies that reverberate on the audience.
This is the booklet that resulted from our creative writing exercises during our residencies. It should be accompanied by the same soundtrack as the dance piece: https://jorgequeijo.bandcamp.com/album/velvet-carpet-2
