(2005 – 2018)
The project Fictional Audiotour is an individual audio experience that uses the city as scenery for a fictional walk. The spectator walks alone with an mp3-player and headphones along the streets of a city listening to a story that turns himself into the main character and that mixes real historical facts with fiction.
During the day, millions of pedestrians pass through the cities, blinded by their own commonness. Buildings, details of the city, historical points, urban art, and even their fellow residents, sharing the same urban habitat, are ignored by passersby.
Pay attention to the details of our surroundings, valuing the city not just as something containing busy lives, but as the space itself, with signs and particularities that reveal and inspire, denounce and transgress, teach and refute.
It is necessary to break away from the obvious view, the habitual course, with its day-to-day alienation, to rethink the city and appreciate its heritage, both tangible and intangible.
The audience plays an important role; they are transformed from passive spectators to the protagonists in their own adventure, in an urban scene with characters (real or fictional?) who also intervene in the game.
Since 2005 we have created numerous works in the form of a Fictional Audiotour. Each one is unique and non-transferable to another place. Each realization takes about a month of work, with extensive research on the place where it is performed, its own script and a specially composed soundtrack.
We did the following different Fictional Audiotour works, most of them in Portuguese or Spanish. But amongst them you can find here a link to the ones that have also an English version:
