In the first performance of the Sete Anos Sete Peças [Seven Years Seven Pieces] series, Cláudia Dias seeks to re-enact a boxing match. Clenched fists, full contact, one thing seems certain: Cláudia Dias and Jaime Neves will literally and metaphorically give and take punches in the mouth. They belong to a community that has been knocked down time and again, and as they punch one another with arguments light will be shed among the promised blood, sweat and tears as in enlightened fables. The feeling of oppression, from which they will free themselves by fighting, shall be countered by the feeling of solidarity among peers that is strengthened in combat as they recognise one another as equals. Clinched fists. Enough friction comes out of these opposing forces to turn words into deeds.


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].
