This solo by Eduardo Fukushima has become an iconic work by one of the most prominent / awarded choreographers of Brazilian contemporary dance. Since its inception, it has been uninterruptedly presented, which is justified by the quality, simplicity and truth it conveys. It resulted from a very personal language, a simple and raw vocabulary that toys with disharmony and confrontation.
O REI NO EXÍLIO — REMAKE is the recreation, the revival of a striking solo of contemporary Portuguese dance, which focuses on the character of D. Manuel II, the last King of Portugal, exiled in England in 1910. It is a portrait of a certain, sometimes ironic, Portugal. At times controversial, where loneliness is permanent. It is a grotesque, dark, sensual universe that juxtaposes intimacy, the chores of the choreographer / performer and the iconographic figure of the King. Past and present are muddled in a character who portrays distinct stories centred on gestures and symbolic actions of male daily life.
