MetaFora presents a form of improvisational theatre based on corporeal and vocal expression. Unlike the ‘battles’ that focus on virtuosic performance, the stage intensity result from the challenge of bringing to life a metaphor. In front of an audience, the actors/dancers/singers/musicians have only a few minutes to transport the audience into a poetic universe. Metaphor, “Meta” derives from the Greek meaning “across, and after,” and “phor” (pherō), meaning “I bear, carry”. “Metafora” is the Portuguese translation. While it carries the same sense as in English, “Meta” can also mean “goal” and “fora” mean “outside”. Thus, the goal of the metaphors is to stretch the boundaries of the imagination beyond the habitual and the mundane. It is going “in through the outdoor” according to Led Zeppelin. The event takes place in two parts: In the first part, a group of selected or “invited” performing artists play together based on random hat selection. In the second part, the “invited” performing artists improvise with volunteers of the public in duo, trios.
