And Yet, It Moves! (10 min)
Project developed in the research context of the MA in Coreography at DOCH (Stockholm)
Premiered in the context of Basement (Stockholm) curated by Tiago Granato e Sandro Resende
The fragment Cosmogny was created with the work title How to make a rainbow in the context of Andaime – Circuito de Artes Performativas
Out in Space (Experiences on Autonomy)
In my previous works, performers constructed and maintained spaces, that are scenic mechanisms, through a deep (civic) engagement with the ecosystems that every performance proposed. This duty of maintenance allowed them to project their utopias there.
One year ago I left Portugal by reasons not difficult to guess for any newspaper reader.
My work adapted to a new context of production that is also dramaturgical – a need to not depend on the context. Basically, space effectually disappeared from my works. Like homeless children convert an old coca-cola can into a car, an ashtray, or a bird… I put things together that react as proto-alchemical figures – like fetuses or galaxies – silently very alive and floating in the space that hosts them. And most of all infinitely potential.
