Tristes Europeus, Jouissez Sans Entraves2001
Tristes Europeus – jouissez sans entraves is an encounter between several people from different Europes in Viseu. They all brought along different stories, specific pasts, realities and expectations that were restated or dissolved in exile. They all use their bodies to express themselves, they all breathe through their skin and dream of dissolving into universal beings capable of grasping and understanding everything.
However, they all suffer from claustrophobia and chronic asthma. The only way to relieve such suffering of not being well anywhere is to be able to forget about oneself.
This encounter is a celebration of memory, of which only the restless body can keep a record. A body that remembers, a body that forgets, a body that feels and gives the feeling that outside of it nothing makes sense.
