Video Document by Thiago Granato

LISTEN.doc is not a live performance streaming. LISTEN.doc is a video document. 

LISTEN.doc is a video documentation about The Sound They Make When No One Listens, a new dance piece by Thiago Granato. 

The Sound They Make When No One Listens had its premiere postponed two times due the Covid-19 Pandemic regulations. Despite of it, we were allowed to keep rehearsing and the work is ready to be shown live once the theaters will be allowed to welcome their audience again. 

For now you have the opportunity to watch at LISTEN.doc extracts from the piece and rehearsals intertwined with reading of book excerpts that nurtured the creation process.
