Pursuing a choreographic research intimately linked to philosophy and literature, “Dos Suicidados – O Vício de Humilhar a Imortalidade” [The Suicided - The Vice of Humiliating Immortality] is based on modernist poet Raul Leal.
One considers his aesthetics of the despicable turned deity, when the Fall is no longer so and becomes Vertigo, which is present with no first past or last future. Two performers express that “pure, loud, clear, beastly” movement, an Apolytrosis, which means redemption or rescue in Greek. The thing being redeemed in this piece is a scream before the ground that experiences the concepts of blasphemy, eschatology, sin, death and revelation. This dance also draws inspiration from Genet, Artaud and Sade, and it exorcises those symptoms and reflexions.

She has a master’s degree in Solo/Dance/Authorship- SODA from the Berlin University of the Arts, and a degree in Psychology from the University of Porto.
