Jonas&Lander’s new creation is a hybrid show between dance and concert music designed for 9 performers: 4 dancers, 4 musicians and a fado singer (dancer).
Like most urban musical currents, such as samba or flamenco, Fado also had its own dances.
In Lisbon, the dance that had the greatest expression was Fado Batido, a dance based on an energetic and virtuosic tap dance.
In Bate Fado, Jonas&Lander propose to reinterpret the recuperation of the act of tapping Fado, where dance emanates the quality of a percussion instrument in dialogue with voice and guitars.
The show reveals itself as the first step towards the rescue of the dance that Fado has lost.
Fado begins to “beat” at 9:30 pm.
