Catarina e Melissa (residency)

March 21 - March 27


PLAYGROUND emerges from the experience of outdoor playing, by oneself and with others who were essential LIFE companions. Recreation as transcendent. An intellectual, emotional, sensory and physical HUMAN LEGACY registered within ourselves crossed with intergenerational amplitude and the main intention that gives it its soul — the GAME. From there, the dance emerges from the game and the game emerges from the dance. The undefinable game lies visible but lingers in immateriality and becomes itself an invigorating space of being, of discovering, of challenge. Within a constant dynamic a total state of PRESENCE is aimed, where the concepts of being a child and an adult lose all its relevance.
