Stereo – Stravaganza – Virtual Kino-Koncert 2D-3D + Q&A with director Edgar Pêra and curator Érica Faleiro Rodrigues

We are proud to announce Stravaganza – Virtual Kino-Koncert 2D-3D, a synthesis of Edgar Pêra’s 2D and 3D kino-koncerts where Pêra films and transmits live, in a dialogue with the musicians on stage (such as Dead Combo, Vítor Rua or The Legendary Tigerman), while VJammer and stereographer Claudio Vasques manipulates the feed, mixing it with other pre-assembled images. Stereo-Extravaganza will be broadcast live from the NEUROLAB Studio, alternating 2D images captured during the concert with anaglyphic films mixed and scored live, all into the freedom of style and structure characteristic of Extravaganza.
19 June, 20.30 GMT
30 min film + 30 min Q&A Edgar Pêra and curator Érica Faleiro Rodrigues, director of the UK Portuguese Film Festival (Utopia Festival)
