The set is a huge hole in the middle of laminated plasterboards, as if a giant iron ball had fallen there. By building the scenic space with the same material used in thousands of Portuguese homes, in order to start deconstructing, Cláudia Dias and Igor Gandra establish a direct link to all that is swept under the Western rug. Despite the fact that today one can easily watch the airstrikes carried out by European military forces on the Internet or on TV, the connection between our homes and the craters opened by missiles somewhere else in the world is not that obvious. This black hole refers to that causal relation that is yet to clarify. It’s not just about showing the responsibility of European social democracies in the massacres currently taking place in the rest of the world.  


Cláudia Dias (Lisboa, 1972) did her dance training at Academia Almadense, the Lisbon Dance Company and Forum Dança. She attended the master’s degree in scenic arts at the Nova University of Lisbon. She was a member of the Almada Dance Group and of the Ninho de Víboras collective. She worked with RE.AL, having played a key role in João Fiadeiro’s creative strategy and in the development, systemisation, and conveying of the real-time composition technique. She holds choreographic composition and real-time composition workshops on a regular basis. She created the pieces One Woman Show, Visita Guiada [Guided Tour], Das Coisas nascem Coisas [Out of Things, Things Are Born], Vontade de ter Vontade [Willingness to Will] and Nem tudo o que dizemos tem de ser feito nem tudo o que fazemos tem de ser ditto [Not Everything We Say Has to Be None nor Does Everything We Do Has to Be Said]. She is currently working on the project Sete Anos Sete Peças [Seven Years Seven Pieces].
