SIMULACRUM BY MARGARIDA MONTENŸ AND CARMINDA SOARES Dance | Theater of Figures June 15th, Wednesday Duration: 45 minutes Age rating: over 6 years old The show contains strobe lights. “Simulacrum” is an exercise in intimacy, repetition and resistance.

A diffuse space is created between the real and the staged, between the public and the private, enhancing states of vulnerability, expectation and tension. “Simulacro” starts from a set of actions and gestures present in the daily lives of the two interpreters, crossed by fragments of shared memories, in a slow exercise of the transformation of bodies and their drives. An immersive and conflicting object.
