Brazil-based artists Lowri Evans and Renato Bolelli Reboucas swapped São Paulo for Salford this August.
The two of them floated along the Bridgewater Canal, fishing for stories and secrets from the people they meet. Through strange goings on, chance encounters and pop-up performances as they began to attempt to piece together a portrait of a place and its people. They started at Boothstown on 13 August, gradually moving along the canal each day, over four weeks, as they headed towards Barton Aqueduct.
This was the first part of an exciting collaboration that will culminate in a shower of poetic fragments on the canal for one day in July 2019. Expect a confetti of personal stories, spectacular happenings and lively get-togethers in a carnaval where nothing is as it seems. Keep an eye out for more details nearer the time
