Delirious Anatomy is a series of feverish studies dedicated to a body part, which are developed in layers of reading, observation, experience, writing and choreography, and are designed to reveal the secrets hidden in the physical constitution. Anatomy names the parts of the whole, segments and stabilizes; delirium arises when a named part is isolated and its functions multiplied. It enters into crisis, reveals its autonomy and renews relationships. Choreographies have been composed for another anatomy, developed in parallel with written scores, which serve as an interior monologue for the dancers.
The two first pieces of the collection Delirious Anatomy, are Gut’s dream — tribute to the gut’s, and Orifice Paradis—tribute to the mouth. Two other pieces for the collection are being created Plateau—tribute to the knee & Pavilion—tribute to the ear, they will be premiered in Nova-Velha Dança em Teatro Sá da Bandeira, Santarém on the 16 June and in Camping, at CN D (Centre National Danse) on 27 and 28 June 2017.
