BOCA MURALHA — dance piece

BOCA MURALHA _ Maria do Carmo Louceiro.jpg

Dance duet inspired by the Furies, archetypal entities, with insatiable impetus for revenge and establishment of a norm. Inside a landscape defined by a golden section, where a tarpean rock is evoked (ancestral stone from where traitors were thrown), two characters obsessively interact with their own reflection, revealing in their gestures, timeless vestiges of practices of attack, defense and dissimulation. A territory of synchronous correlations is established by the reiteration of gesture and voice, imposing the unfolding of different anatomies, the armor-mask, the electrical surface. The commotion and anticipation of outbreak, determine a permanent state of surveillance, throughout the succession of nocturnal and diurnal landscapes. Boca Muralha is the last moment of REI, a trilogy of dance pieces that explores scenic mechanisms, producing states of tension, revealers of conflict and coercion, present in the contemporary imaginary.
