And yet we still move. Fragility as a capacity, as a poetic place, is the starting point of a performance that arises from the desire to shift the private to the public sphere. The choreographers and performers Joana Castro and Maurícia | Neves question and reconfigure the relationships between them, using as a base photographs from the personal archive of a romantic relationship that ended.

The image as a place of projection and construction. The relation between the photographed bodies is reinhabited or perhaps not, but in this mutating experience between past and present the perception of these very images transforms and gains new outlines in the bodies of the two artists. (Re)(de) constructing themselves in new forms of existence, between the ephemerality and the prolonged suspension of the gesture, the performance evokes a space of profound intimacy and ephemerality that corresponds to the pace of the outside world.
