We dance like the dew when it evaporates, waltzing its last dance with the grass, with the leaves, with the spider’s web, finding its new companion in the wind, in the sky, becoming a cloud, the one that caresses the mountains.
In „Vagarosas“ (Portuguese: fem. „the leisurely ones“), seven performers explore the state of perseverance; the human ability to persist and be determined. The perpetual motion of volcanic mountains erupts here as a metaphor, as an impulse for strength, relentless transformation and resistance. What we experience are vibrating bodies and sounds in coexistence with each other.
