A SOLO FOR SOCIETY
Conceived from the monologue The Contrabass, by Patrick Suskind, in this new creation, choreographers São Castro and António M Cabrita, intend to explore the metaphor established between the hierarchy of an orchestra and the organization of society.
In Um solo para a Sociedade, the two choreographers seek to deepen the reflection on how people occupy a common territory, addressing issues that guide the human condition, such as love, freedom, choice, identity; expanding the gesture as an elaborate and externalized movement of this reflection. The confrontation of self and others, noise and silence, in visible sound in the body.
A solo before society, the public. A public that observes the individual, an interpreter that observes society.
