Foresta Rossa is a two-poet show featuring spoken poetry, audiovisual and live painting. The performance is created specifically for a festival location in Lousa (Portugal) that was impacted by forest fires. 
The show aims to address the issue of environmental emergency and its effects on people, in the face of the increasing threat of global warming.
The performance consists of a pre-structured dialogue, with improvisational parts that respond to the unique context of the performance location. 
The site-specific element of the show involves visits to the location to collect memories from victims and analyze artifacts of forest fires.
