Sidney Leoni & Luís Miguel Félix : War of fictions

War of Fictions is a performance composed as a series of landscapes mainly generated by the presence of 2 performers who inhabit fictional and imaginary spaces. The performers invest in a physical score that passes through extreme expressions, sensations and actions that are performed in duration and that suggest other ways of relating to the surrounding space, time, gravity-weight, imagery and social behaviour.

A hunched figure is walking slowly in the distance.
A gust of wind brings a smell that makes your thoughts wander off.
When you look up next, the figure seems closer.
You sense that there could be other figures in this land, but you can't see them.
The floor is rocking softly beneath your feet.
One of the performers comes closer and looks at your hands.
The room feels warmer. Is it the thick, colored light projected on your skin that makes you feel this way?
The floor is cracking, opening holes in which figures keep falling and then reappearing.
As if fictions were folding and unfolding around you.

Bernard delves deeper into Fernando Pessoa's Ode Marítima by researching how this epic poem can be translated into (moving) images. During her research, Dolores invites fellow artists to encounter her and props from previous pieces, guided by Martha Nussbaum's acclaimed work The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy.
