TERÇA-FEIRA: Tudo o que é sólido dissolve-se no ar




Cláudia and Luca have constructed a visual narrative, using a line to tell the story of a ten-year-old boy, whose grandparents were expelled from Palestine and then from Lebanon, who travels from Syria to Italy. In parallel, they have created a sound narrative, with the noises of this escape. All of this, including Cláudia and Luca’s bodies, is non-verbal, precisely to avoid preconceived ideas. And the text, rather than coming from the mouths of the actors, which would create a false sense of identification with refugees, is projected on the set, in order to underline the distance that separates actors and refugees.

She is a choreographer, performer, and teacher whose work has been presented at theaters and festivals in Portugal and abroad. She began her dance training at Academia Almadense and Companhia de Dança de Lisboa. She later studied Contemporary Dance – Performance at Forum Dança and holds a Master’s degree in Performing Arts from Universidade Nova de Lisboa. She began her career as a dancer with Grupo de Dança de Almada and was part of the artists’ collective Ninho de Víboras. She collaborated regularly with Re.Al, where she performed with João Fiadeiro and was an important part of the development, systematization, and transmission of the Real Time Composition technique, which she continues to teach today. Her original work include performances such as One Woman Show; Guided Tour; Out of things, things are born; Willingness to Will; and Nem tudo o que dizemos tem de ser feito nem tudo o que fazemos tem de ser dito. Cláudia is currently working on a seven-year project that fights the idea of an absent or precarious future that is painstakingly laid out year after year. Monday: Watch out for the Right, the first of seven pieces to be created every year until 2022, premiered in February 2016.
