24 February [9.30pm]: Teatro das Figuras, Faro, Portugal
In his “Diary of the Clouds”, Goethe issues a challenge that became our starting point: to reintegrate the sky into the human landscape.
We improvise a sort of climatic hypersensitivity and explore the force and unpredictability of letting ourselves be crossed by the most varied natural forces.
The dynamics of climates and the imaginary associated with them will be used primarily as metaphors for looking at men and their relationships.
What remains with us (as sensation, echo, thought) is that which resists interpretation most; the unspeakable; the gesture; the irreducible. It is in this resistance that we find art that bends, shapes, and configures new thoughts of the possible. In this sense art is like weather, not climate; it is a force that holds many pressures, storms, lights and moods. It can beat down and rip at your core, it can surround you and it can disperse you into a million shards of light.
