João dos Santos Martins (PT)
Inspired by Yvonne Rainer’s legendary Continuous Project – Altered Daily, João Martins uses choreography as a method to examine, activate and transform the relationships between people in this group piece. The six performers and the live pianist tread the paths of such diverse protagonists of dance history as Isadora Duncan and “nude dancer” Lola Bach, who was persecuted by the authorities, all the way to Jane Fonda. With a touch of humour they expose historical images of the body and their respective contexts, and pose eternal questions about the possibilities of collective and individual action.
