Téntere, nublo is a site-specific public performance for Tudela’s historic district, in the North of Spain, culminating in a participatory sound performance in La Casa del Almirante.
The piece is based on an ancient local incantation meant to protect crops against violent weather. Using this ritual as a starting point, the piece expands into a sonic choreography of the old city of Tudela inspired by local flora and fauna, performed by women from the region.
