“Why am I so unhappy? Because I am what I must not be. Because half of me is not brother to the other half, & the conquest of one is the defeat of the other.”
Five women and Fernando Pessoa. A female Pessoa in high heels. The words of the poet challenge the words of the women, who let themselves get lost by their own narratives. The poetry of female movement crosses the piece, mixed with the passion invested in each gesture. In this universe of Pessoa, they’re concerned about their hair, use high heels, despise men and dance with bodies that exude sensuality.
The movement is restrained, smooth and flows into extended pleasure. This place of sensations is only interrupted by the choreographer’s higher power of playing with his creations, of making them laugh at themselves.
