Ar ao Vento (Air in the Wind), by Ligia Soares, proposes a show which, instead of sending us off to some theatrical dimension, occupies the theatre space for 55minutes and awakens us to the emptiness of the special and temporal dimension. This piece seeks to cancel out representation in the way that all events on stage are the real consequence of a process fed by a relationship of expectations. The expectation reveals itself to be an acerbic driving force for discourse.
Era uma coisa mesmo muito abstracta (Once there was a thing that was really abstract), choreographed by Andresa Soares, emerged from the desire to throw a challenge out to the strange world of abstraction while holding back the desire to say something and plunge into a type of expressive abnegation. Firmly based upon the conviction that movement contains ideas inside itself, it was aimed to create a language whose signifiers and signified last for the duration of the moment in which they are created.
Music as an "abstract material" models this sensation and casts it off into a sense of continuity, acting upon the reality which it has created like transfiguring spirit which opens up and drives the potential for interpretation of events held within this moment of building the present.
