The childhood as surreal age,
time to build and destroy,
time of doing and undoing: paths, steps, mazes, ties.
Construction and things, between itself and the other that create the scenic space as in a children’s game:
we pretend that … just a sign on the ground.

The show, created by the International Festival of Dance in urban landscape Lugar Dança in Lisbon, is loosely based on the novel by Amelie Nothomb “Sabotage of Love.”

I have entrusted to the music the task of expressing the resistance force, the attachment and the adaptation, the noisy and disorderly vitality of childhood. Instead, I have entrusted to the movement the possibility to express the contact with things, that feeling of being unique and perfect in imperfection, the center of the world and the projection center of gaze.
