O Elefante No Meio Da Sala / The Elephant In The Room

O Elefante No Meio Da Sala / The Elephant In The Room

Choreography: Vânia Doutel Vaz

This solo stretches the tensions and expectations between the performer and the audience to limits, testing their flexibility. The work oscillates around the metaphor of “the elephant in the room”: Elephants that the performer brings to the room, elephants brought by the audience and even those that arise in a relationship between observers observed. What is it that we dare not say or which we are unable to deal with?
