Direction by Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz
This piece arises from the comparison of the research tools and choreographic composition of Sofia Dias and Vítor Roriz with the bodies and sensitivities of the artists of the Companhia Maior. A piece that begins with an appeal to experimentation, which is nothing more than an attempt to encounter what we have not mastered or puts us in a zone of conflict, risk and even bankruptcy. It seems to us that it is in this place, between what is dominated and what is unknown, that the body acquires the quality of the present – a transparency that allows to see its way of acting and thinking. The place of singing is empty is a game of alternations between the abstract and the figurative, the recognizable and the strange, the individual and the collective, the biographical and the fictional. A composition of sound scores, gestures that connect with words, brief narratives interrupted by movements and objects that give rise to voices.
