“In April, 1000 Digitail” celebrates the International Dance Day with Teatro Viriato and Dançando com a Diferença
by Patrick Murys and Dançando com a Diferença
What if, from the imperfection of reality – as we perceive it – we created a body (a fiction)? An existence (a place) where the rawness of the bodies is combined together with the magic (the power) of our imagination?
“GABO”, a creation by Dançando com a Diferença, is a show aimed at youths and families where difference and diversity are put in the spotlight so that teenagers and children can make their own analysis. The show shares its name with the puppet that, together with its fellow performers, dances across the stage questioning their own limits and their place in society. Diversity and equality, the ugly and the beautiful, reality and illusion, limitations and the notion of a proper place, are all questions approached by “GABO”, the puppet handled by the performers on stage, in order to make us reach a bigger strength within our humanity.
