Beatriz Garrucho - Águas Mil, créditos ~ Raquel Rocha

ÁguasMil — Beatriz Garrucho

Here, I’m at the surface with me, there, I’m at the bottom with you. I left home in order to find myself with others, through meetings that are small moments of celebration. A thousand waters is a solo that ritualises and celebrates the cry on a continuity of endings. Fuck, let’s kill evil in the bud and also of course, have the courage to recognise the end. I wanted it to be like a jubilee, a party, indulgence because I want it to end with a celebration. So that’s it, going to the rotten, and then the light, the rotten and then light again and again. All of this inside a bathtub, I enjoy it, if the water is super hot and our bodies are like a church up in flames.
