Behemot ou a Queda (afectos) — Gonçalo Alegria

June 20 - July 2

Gonçalo Alegria.

Behemot ou a Queda (afectos) — Gonçalo Alegria

I am lying down on one of those pandemic afternoons, thinbking about Behemot the cat from The Master and Margarita. That book ins’t here anymore but it is present by it’s abscence. I am transported to the book of Job and to Thomas Hobbes Behemoth, and also to Daemonologie of. James I of England.

I decided to write a text where I devise a walk, where we can observe this history territory
To realize that what is being discussed in the chosen texts are things that are subsumed in the rest of the other texts that assist the dragging of history.

Realizing the possibilities of this intertextuality, of not only direct extraction of elements from other works, but also being able to put them in dialogue in the scene: text, origin, author and actor.

This process will involve confronting the text with the readers, critics, creators and, as a team, inhabiting a world where we can find astonishment in our findings and give back something to read.
