In the fourth instalment of the Sete Anos Sete Peças [Seven Years Seven Pieces] project, Cláudia Dias and Idoia Zabaleta provide worn out words with new uses. They start from scratch to once again agree on the minimum meaning of each word with the people attending. Peace, bread, work, education—what do they mean exactly? Demonstrating the true relation between things and words, searching for the hidden names of injustice, inequality and oppression, the artists look for the magical words to move bodies and worlds.  


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].
