“UM+UM=UM” results from the work developed at the 14th creation residence (September 2020) at the Biblioteca de Marvila in Lisbon, Portugal. It involves a multidisciplinary team with the participation of professional artists and students from Higher School of Dance, Higher School of Music (Lisbon – Portugal) and students from basic dance course of Luís António Verney School.
“UM+UM=UM” is in a state of transition, in a perpetual movement between the end and the possibility of a new beginning. In this series, almost mathematical, the bodies are able to open up to the world through movement, music or voice and image. They are unique bodies seeking unity, in a constant process of overcoming. “UM+UM=UM” is a geometric poem, a metaphor for speed, an overflow of color. It is a gap between the human being and his own transcendence.
