A performance that stems from the history of graffiti to take us on a journey with various questions.
Valve is a performance that stems from the history of graffiti to take us on a journey with various questions: Why have we been informally drawing on walls for thousands of years? Are these transgressions or art? Communication or occupation? Can disobedience be legitimate?
Author António Jorge Gonçalves invites MC and activist Flávio Almada aka LBC Soldjah so that together they may risk coming up with some answers. In this performance, half lecture, half rap/hip hop concert, digital drawing, music and words guide us through the lines drawn by hunter-gatherers on rocks 30.000 years ago, the annotations drawn by romans on the walls of houses in Pompeii and political murals created 100 years ago, so that we may understand the spray-paintings that fill the walls of cities.
At the end of each session, the audience is given a voice, in a conversation where they can comment on what they saw, heard and thought.
