Temple City


Presentation Title:

  • Temple City




  • This piece is a musical dance that documents the sounds of the principal churches in Manizales: the rituals, the spaces, the whispers, the prayers, the bells, the dialogues between people and the traditions within these places that are holy and syncretic in nature and which contrast against the busy streets of the city, the market, 23rd Avenue, downtown etc. The city becomes a sacred place with the smell of incense and the sound of bells; people carry out rituals in their workplace, when they buy their lunch, when they walk through the streets making everyday life something sacred, a soundscape inspired by the customs and spaces of Manizales.
