Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa


The work begins slowly, with everyone focussed on the middle of the stage. Bodies move, change, connect sporadically, come together, fall apart. There are stories, there is rivalry. There is a physiological violence that takes just one look. There is a lack of self-control, the bodies are tired but they do not give up.

Artist Statement

With this project, I wanted to get the audience to explore their own minds. Our thoughts flow through, without the right amount of time to process information coming in. This project explores the idea of the thoughts of strangers one meets day to day; am I thinking the same thing as this person? Do I think faster or slower? More complex or more simple?
