AND THE SHAPE OF THINGS DISAPPEARED FOR A WHILE
21 November to 7 December
Espaço Santa Catarina
Monday to Friday | 2pm to 8pm
The conflicting emotions that emerged after my father's death, compelling me to contemplate the limitations of human existence, resulted in the present project, which seeks to explore how the body clothes itself in mourning.
In an essay that delves into the depths of the human experience when confronted with death, it unveils a silent dance that the body enacts. On this intimate stage, each one finds their own rhythm and their own step, where pain and acceptance intertwine in a melody between darkness and light.
It is a performance of raw emotions, a story without words.
