William Frederick Cody (1846-1917) was a U. S. Cavalry marksman who became famous at a young age for killing a ridiculous amount of buffalos in order to ease the construction of a railroad in the state of Iowa, where he had been born, for which he was nicknamed Buffalo Bill. The goal of the slaughter was to simultaneously clear ground, feed the construction workers and starve the natives.
Years later, he created Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, a circus that became world-famous and travelled the whole world, using Native Americans as the main attraction. He also gave rise to the famous comic book saga Buffalo Bill, where he featured as a great guardian of justice.


Paulo Mota was born in 1991 in Santa Cruz do Bispo, Matosinhos. He completed the acting course at ACE – School of Arts in 2010 and has since worked with choreographers Joana Providência, António Júlio, Madalena Victorino, André Braga and Cláudia Figueiredo, Victor Hugo Pontes, Ana Luena, Rogério de Carvalho, Gonçalo Amorim and João Garcia Miguel. He also performed in live music presentations with Dead Combo, Carlos Bica, João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Peixe, André Pires, Joana Gama and Pedro Augusto. He currently teaches acting at ACE, in Porto.

Devagar is a recently formed—February of 2021—cultural association wishing to become a creative structure that focuses on cross-disciplinary performing activities rooted on the language of theatre. Its debut presentation took place in the scope of FITEI 2021: a video work titled Um jogo bastante perigoso [A Rather Dangerous Game], based on the book 24/7, by Jonathan Crary, and on the poem Arte Poética [Poetic Art], by Adília Lopes.
