Event Description
Betti lives in her homeland -Cape Verde- where she is a dancer in the company Raiz do Polon. When she is offered the chance to join a Cape Verdean music show in Lisbon and launch a new career for herself in Portugal, it sets off a deep and essentially Cape Verdean conflict inside -the identity constructed over the centuries by the diaspora of her people. Doubts and feelings of melancholy and homelessness hang over her and accompany her as she attempts to make her decision.
