Fora de qualquer presente
6:00pm / afternoon shared with Denise Stutz
Combining formal liberty with rigid methodology, Sofia and Vitor give shape to a poetic space where rigorous movement meets emotions and sound. In their most recent piece, they are compelled to go out – an ‘out’ that is not geographic nor part of a classic narrative of exodus in the face of a failed present. The movement, in another direction, restores a perspective that allows us to connect asymmetric and disparate fragments.
Sofia Dias and Vitor Roriz are co-creators of a series of dance pieces, including A gesture that is nothing more than a threat for which they won the Jardin d’Europe award in 2011. They are associate artists at Espaço do Tempo and Materiais Diversos and return to FMD for the second time.
