Marga Alfeirão with Mariana Benenge, Myriam Lucas, Shaka Lion


A duet, but not only between two dancers: Marga Alfeirão’s LOUNGE is a place where opposites – movement and rest, giving and receiving, the private and the public – meet and merge into a transitory space not ruled by frantic comings and goings but encounter and recovery. Alfeirão, who in her work has been greatly influenced by the dances and sounds of the African diaspora, understands relaxation – lounging – as a way of reclaiming female eroticism and in her “lesbian lap dance duet” has managed to create a choreography of hypnotic care and beauty.
