Orbits is a proposal for artistic paths and trajectories connecting earthly and cosmic environments. Though distant in time and place, the forest and outer space symbolize, for different eras, a final frontier beyond the common human experience. Orbits originates from a very specific interpretation of these similarities, involving location, music and audience. guided by a multitude of mystical and gravitational forces, moved by infinite ever-expanding loops, Orbits wishes to place those we gather in the role of voyagers of the sonic frequencies that bring these separate yet similar dimensions into communication. Orbits is thus born as a universal and mobilizing experience for modern-day discoverers*
FIRST WAVE OF ACTS
A SACRED GEOMETRY
PETER VAN HOESEN
Orbits' aesthetic concept and philosophy find the perfect context in the beautiful and magical surroundings of the São Gião camping park, near Oliveira do Hospital, at the heart of the Portuguese landscape. Being itself a symbol of the resilience and renewal of nature in the face of adversity, these grounds act as the ideal launchpad for the journey that Orbits seeks to be, of healing, self-discovery and connection. A carefully selected roster of artists from the techno, experimental and ambient fields will trace the coordinates of our travels over two distinct areas throughout three days of performances, outlining a modern vision of notions as ancient and primal as time and our own existence*
Glamping tent and shuttle bus will be available for reservation in the next weeks. The venue is reachable in 2 hours by car from Porto and about 1 hour more from Lisbon. FAQ & useful informations will be soon added.
