Ubi Sunt. Porto. Cartography of an imaginary place attracted by the margins (social and geographical).
Hybrid and eclectic project, it is the outcome of a audiovisual research residency of humam and urban exploration of an expanding city.
Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt?, meaning "Where are those who were before us?". Reflective essay on mortality and life's transience,
it emerges from that dialectic, of a and episodic and fragmented structure with a choreographed cinematography; where the memory intersects the contemporary.
The project hosts two performances - 'One Life to Live' and 'Requiem' by Christoph Both-Asmus and counts with the participation of CESA.

15.10.2016 Lisbon, Portugal – A few days after the performance Christoph Both-Asmus text message read: “With the approaching tidal flow it became simultaneously cold and wet from below and warm from above. I felt lingering between water and fire. (…)” I was intrigued when he mentioned that the touch of the flowers was perhaps gentler than the human touch. I let the performance run until his wish.

03.07.2017 Costa Navarino, Greece – Email from Christoph Both-Asmus: “05.08.2015 Acropolis of Corinth, Greece. Excerpt from sketchbook – Since I remember that I wish to be here, with the nature, an almost painful desire.” So he attempts to encapsulate this nature but I know that he won’t find peace in his restless search.
