Signed by João Gil, “Caixa de Luz” is much more than a concert that revisits his successful career with different guests every night. “Caixa de Luz” is also a visual experience, in which plastic artist Ana Mesquita signs the scenography, having created close to a hundred images and videos inspired by the musician’s work, helping to create, as the name suggests, a “ Box of Light” that illuminates the boundaries usually erected between artist and audience.
In short, “Caixa de Luz” is a journey through the songbook of João Gil, one of the most prolific composers in the history of Portuguese music in recent decades, who has increasingly discovered himself as a performer, as we can listen in his latest singles, “O Exacto Opposite”, “A Marcha da Polícia”, “Quântica” and the most recent “Dedo do Meio”.
