LED – Inner voyage in a smartphone


TAGV – Teatro Académico de Gil Vicente

We have never been, in the many aspects of our lives – either at work or in entertainment- in such a close and constant relationship with machines.

What goes on inside our machine companions?

Starting from our imagination, we enter a smartphone’s micro-world, and join an elemental particle – an electron – in a journey of  self discovery.

LED initially premiered in 2006 at TAGV, and was a stepping stone in the company’s aesthetics as well as in it’s relationship to scientific themes.

We have returned to this show in our 20th anniversary, revisiting its ever more pertinent issues. Who are we? Why are we here? How are we here?

LED offers us a change in perspective, by letting us look at human beings from within a machine.
