Historia | container
by Mandafounis & GIUDICELLI
Commissioned by Overseas culture interchange
Created and performed by René Loui, Manuel Castomo Mussundza & Diogo Ricardo under the direction of Emilia Giudicelli and assisted by Alexandre Américo, Historia | Container highlights the complexity and plurality of an encounter.
The creators/accomplices are swept up in a real-time dramaturgical process that becomes the container of bodies and various stories. In this work each artist carries and defends the acts of the other as if they were his own.
Each dancer is a witness to the other and accompanies every move, through all possible risks.
The individual reactions emerge from the proliferation of urgency. The bodies are fragile, strong - untouchable apparitions.
They become catalysts for one another, acting in resonance. As a witness, the audience contains the story.
